3 Best Ways to Track a Cell Phone Location by Number

18 July 2019, 4:18 pm EDT By Eric HamiltonE Mobile & Apps

Tracking apps are beneficial. They help us in locating our phone, whether we have it or not. The best part is tracking the phone when you lose it or stolen. That is why people are looking for the best tracking apps to monitor phones for their friends and loved ones. 

Another way to apply monitoring apps is spying, which mostly becomes the primary function. Children need to have smartphones and tablets, but they are also vulnerable while there. 

You may also be an employer who needs to track the employees to make sure they are productive. If such issues are your concerns, then you need a way to track a phone without them knowing. 

Here, I have already done that for you by choosing the three best cell phone location tracking applications.

Part 1: Spyic (Best Cell Phone Tracker)

If you want a monitoring tool that is easy to install and use with real-time results, then Spyic is the way to go. It's a tracking application that can do more than tracking a cell phone. It can remotely fetch you the call log, messages, social media activity and more. 

You can use it to track Android and iOS phones and tablets, and it doesn't require any rooting or jailbreaking. Millions of users have already acquired it in more than 190 countries not mention being featured in major news outlets. 

Spyic's tracking mode is secret, thanks to the stealth mode operation. I will also show you how to track a phone number with Spyic apart from location tracking. Here is how you can use it to track in both Android and iOS platforms. 

1.1 Tracking an Android Phone Using Spyic

In Android, Spyic needs one-time installation on the device you want to track. It's however easy, and it will take you less than 5 minutes to set everything up. You don't need to root the phone here since Spyic has the necessary cutting edge technologies to track. 

Lastly, everything will be web-based after acquiring it, including one-click remote uninstallation via the dashboard. The Android version works with all devices with OS version 4.0 and above.

1.2 Steps to Track Android Devices 

  • Visit the Spyic website and register for free.

  • Next, select the Android icon to continue. The site will take to a page with pricing plans.

  • Select the one that suits your tracking needs and make a purchase. 

  • You will receive a confirmation email with the receipt, log in details, instructions to install and a download link. 

  • Now, use the download link on the phone you want to monitor to download and install Spyic.

  • Finish up the installation and use another device to access your account remotely.

  • Login to Spyic and wait for it to synchronize with the phone.

  • After that, you will see the dashboard with a features list on the left and the phone's summary on the bigger right division. 

  • You can click each of the features from call and contacts to applications and see what Spyic has remotely fetched. 

  • Now, to track the phone, you will need the Location feature. It shows you the exact location and the previously visited places. 

  •  It also has the Geofence alert that emails you whenever the phone is in unwanted areas. 

When your phone or the ones you are tracking go missing, you can always rely on Spyic's tracking ability. It will tell you where it is if on and if off, it will show the last known location.

To track the phone number, go to SIM card feature and click on it. You will see all the details about it (including the number). You can also use the alerts feature to get emails whenever there is a SIM card change. 

Its location is also shown below the information. 

1.3 Tracking an iOS Phone Using Spyic

In iOS, Spyic is easier to use since there are no downloads or installations involved. All you need are the iCloud details of the phone to get started. It's also a non-jailbreak solution, which means you can set up without touching the phone. 

Spyic's iOS version works with all devices with OS version 7.0 and above. Before you begin, make sure that two-step verification is disabled in the device.

1.4 Steps to Track an iOS Phone

  • Use your browser, in any device to access Spyic website. Once you get there, register an account using an email and password. 

  • Continue by selecting the Apple icon and go ahead to choose your favorite tracking plan.

  • Make a purchase and wait for the confirmation email.

  • Once it arrives, it will have the payment details, login credentials, and instructions to set up.

  • Go back to your Spyic account by logging in and then input the iCloud information of the phone you want to track. 

  • The next step will involve selecting the device you want to monitor. If there is more than one device in the same cloud, choose the appropriate one to continue. 

  • Wait for Spyic to sync with the iCloud before getting to the dashboard. 

You will then see the features on your left and the phone's information. To track the location, scroll down to Location feature to view the map. There, you will always know where the phone is and the previously visited sites.

The Geofence feature will also alert you whenever the phone enters restricted zones. 

You can also check on phone number information and its location  via the SIM card feature.

Part 2: How to Track a Phone Number via Cocospy

Cocospy is another tracking tool that I can recommend to all parents, employers, and anyone else with tracking needs to meet. It's similar to Spyic in several ways. 

Cocospy also works in both Android and iOS platforms with no rooting or jailbreaking.

In Android, you need a one-time installation that also takes less than 5 minutes. In iOS, you only need the iCloud credentials to start tracking. You can use Cocospy to get more information which includes calls, messages, browsing history, among others. 

The control panel is web-based and fully compatible with all browsers. It fetches the location information in real-time, and it keeps a history of the previously visited places. What else do you want to view? The features list will tell you more once you click on each of them. 

To use Cocospy, click the link in the first paragraph to access the service. Then refer to the Android and iOS steps in Spyic section for details. 

Part 3: How to track a cell phone by number via Spydialer

The next phone location service provider is a purely web-based tool. It can tell you more about a phone's owner once you feed in the correct details. Spydialer is a reverse phone lookup tool that you can use to search for more information about someone.

You can use a phone number, address, name or the email address. Once you feed what you have and click 'SEARCH,' it will show you all the information available about the unknown. It gets better when you have an account with them, but the services are 100% free. 

That means you don't even have to log in to continue. Without an account, you can search up to 10 numbers in a day. The only limitation here is that it will only work for those in the US alone.

 Another thing, it only shows you the available records which you can later use to locate a phone. Spydialer does not have the GPS and location tracking service.


There are other numerous ways that you can use to track a cell phone's location. The reason why I recommend the above solutions is because they have proven to work. You should be wary of every other solution you get, especially if it says free. 

The smart app owners are also known to send virus and malware to your device. So, it's a good idea to take precaution and follow the right advice. 

On my end, I prefer Spyic and Cocospy. They provide the location in real-time, are cheap to acquire and safe to use.
