We see in counter terrorist and other police related movie or television series that the cops place GPS tracking device on car of suspect to monitor their movements, that’s really cool. But how they do that?
Well, we need a tiny tracking device in order to track a vehicle, cell phone, pet or people. Usually we hide the tracking system somewhere so that the person being tracked would not notice it. This is rather easy if you are tracking your pet because you are not afraid it would be aware of the tracking device. It’s also simple to track a car as there are many places you can hide your secret gadget. But it’s not easy to track a person as the tiniest thing could be easily found and removed.
When it comes to track a cell phone, there is not where you can place a GPS tracking system, not even the smallest. So people develop cell phone tracking apps which could be easily installed and many people even do not know it. As lots of people take their cell phone wherever they go, we can track a person using his / her cell phone.
There are many mobile tracking apps out there for various mobile platforms like iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Symbian etc. All you need to do is downloading and installing it to the cell phone you want to track, and then you are ready to view its movements and the people who own it on a map online.
However, cell phone tracking could violate our privacy, so it should be properly used.
