How To Track A Cell Phone Location For Free 2020!

by birtanpublished on November 25, 2020

So it's on the internet as one is uh nowadays especially with your locked at home and i came across this video in actually a series of videos about how to track smartphones for free um and let me tell you something knowing what i know about tech i was kind of appalled even more scary some of these videos have hundreds of thousands or even millions of views and they're telling you to do something that i would never have you do as a matter of fact i think that the reason some of these videos do so well is because people

Don't know the power of their smartphone and what's already a part of what they've purchased they think they need to download apps from other app stores or go to sketchy websites and download things trust me when i tell you what i'm gonna tell you here today not only will help you track and find your phone for free it will keep you a hundred percent safe in addition i'm gonna teach you something about your phone that you may not be aware

Yes we can see where you were years ago i'm not even kidding and i'll show you how right after this what up players welcome back and for all you new people welcome my name is travis and i do tech videos every single week and have a blast doing them if that sounds like fun to you sit back relax and enjoy the video anything i talk about will be in the description below but for now let's just get into the video so i guess some people want to be

Able to find smartphones anywhere anytime for free now i'm going to divide this into two things number one finding your own smartphone which i think there's a lot of legitimate reasons for this and then how to find other people's smartphones which i am unsure of now law enforcement may have a need for this especially if someone goes missing or something like that so let them use their technology there are a couple of sites that will allow you to find people basically based off of

Their phone numbers and imeis and stuff like that i'm not super comfortable discussing that stuff because i believe legality in different countries and states is a little bit different so i'm i'm not trying to not trying to get no one uh stalked i'm not trying to do that i will say that it is possible to trick someone into telling you where they are which i am again not a fan of but i think it's important to show you how it's done so that you can avoid having it done to

You so let's first talk about that and then we're gonna get into all the ways you can find your own phone which i think is a much safer and a much more legitimate thing number one when someone sends you pictures of things be wary especially if they're just acquaintances or people you've never met before so you may have heard a bunch of viruses that have been able to be sent through pictures or maybe you're not aware of this let me tell you it's scary

Out there which is why it's so important to be able to update your phone with the latest security patches both on android and ios of course ios happens all the time android depends on your manufacturer and of course your uh your telephone company and sometimes they're in the way regardless you should always stay up to date because there are vulnerabilities in these phones that are taken advantage of every single day however this one may never be patched because it's not really a vulnerability shout out to my friend leron i'm going

To leave a link to his channel in the description below he actually has a video on this exact thing so i'm just going to give the 30 000 foot view if you want a much more detailed look in this first thing i'm going to leave you a link make sure you go check them out basically what happens is someone will go to this particular website and use a url shortener which is something that you take a very long url and then shorten it down to something smaller and what you can do is find a picture somewhere on the web

On the web anywhere doesn't matter what the picture is put it into that url shortener and then send it along to the person now nine times out of ten especially they kind of know who you are you can say hey look at this picture they click on it cool they saw a picture whoopty doo right well on the back end this website will tell you their ip address and give you a general idea of where they are on a map like that's kind of creepy so basically if someone sends you a url

Especially if you're not really good friends with them maybe you just don't click it because once you've clicked it you are in that website's clutches and now people can follow you and if they're your latest tinder date you might you might not you might not want that that aside there's plenty of reasons why you might want to be able to find your own phone perhaps you lost it maybe it was in an uber maybe you went to a party and you blacked out drunk and you don't remember

Where it is uh give me a thumbs up down below if you're one of the party animals that's lost uh your phone once before don't worry i won't tell anybody and leave me a comment below and tell me what other ways you could lose your phone or need to be able to find it even if you haven't necessarily lost it maybe it was stolen or something leave me a comment below and let me know one of your stories i'm sure it'll be interesting but you should know this both android and ios already have this ability built in you do not need to download apps and one

Of the things that these videos and websites tell you to do or to go to these really sketchy websites and install or in one of the videos it shows injecting apps into your phone let me just be clear about this you should never ever ever ever ever ever ever install an app from some website some random website and put it on your phone many of us have things like our bank apps our our amazon apps like everything our home addresses phone numbers everything and you have no

Idea what that app can do there are apps that can steal all of that stuff and send it to someone else and i know you don't want that and as a matter of fact that can happen on your own wi-fi but lucky for you i've teamed with trend micro and they can save you from that check this out you probably think that just putting anti-virus on your computer and having a network router is enough security but the reality is there's millions of attacks on home networks every single year and the trend micro home network

Security can completely fix that for you you might think having a router an anti-virus on your computer is enough security but let me tell you it's not you have tons of smart devices in your house that need protection and the trend micro home network security has you covered as a matter of fact it's so simple to set up that you can have your kids do it they're probably better at it than you anyway all you have to do is plug it into your router download the app

And you're off to the races this thing is amazing in the app you can actually see not only every single device that's connected to your network but whenever a new device connects so if someone's trying to drive by and hack your wi-fi you'll see it and you can deny it on the spot you can manage every single device from your phone or your tablet as long as you have the app installed that is security anywhere in the world even if you're not home it provides powerful and flexible parental controls

Such as controlling social media blocking inappropriate websites setting time limits for your kids and much much more it blocks malicious websites and files protects against viruses and hackers and provides firewall protection on all connected devices unlike antivirus which only protects the one device it's installed on so special thanks to trend micro for sponsoring this video there's a link in the description below so if you want to purchase one i have a little special deal there for

You so make sure you go check it out and get it today your security is worth so much it's time to get secure so then how do you find your phone well there's a couple of things number one there's the find my iphone on iphones now if your phone itself is lost you literally can go to your computer log into your icloud account and do the find my phone this becomes a little bit sketchy if you have two-factor authentication on which you probably

Should have and you can't authenticate because your phone is elsewhere so hopefully you have already done that logged into one of the browsers somewhere in your home so that if this ever happens you can get into it if you have an ipad or something like that already then you're already good to go but if you don't i highly suggest right now go and log in on one of your computers to icloud.com get yourself two-factor authenticated so that if you ever need to find your phone

You can and then it's pretty simple you just click find my iphone you can erase it you can ring it you can do all types of things you can see where it was last super super clutch and that's for ios but what about android it's actually even perhaps simpler than that just go to google and type in find my phone and it literally comes up it's it's pretty simple and it'll show you all the stuff about where it is what the type of phone it is and you can ring it erase it do all the things

Like they did on the my find my iphone but here's something that's really interesting about this and a lot of you may have noticed that you've actually even had this enabled and it's good to have enabled but there's something else that google maps specifically is doing that you need to be aware of i've talked about this before but it seems like whenever i do videos about privacy no one really watches them but let me tell you you're going to want to know

About this right now did you know that if you've had an android phone or at least a phone with google maps and that could include iphones that um you can look at where you've been pretty much any year you've had that phone i can look back to 2018 or even before and see what my day was like yes it'll even tell me if i was driving or walking years ago i don't know if you're paying attention to this i'm making this video in 2020 that was two years ago

And it knows where i was now sometimes it's not exactly super accurate but it is stupid accurate uh and you may not be aware that this is a thing you can turn off there are some settings you can turn off i'll show you some of that here but let me just say this one very important thing google knows everything about you and like i've said about privacy a million times the minute you have a smartphone or you have any kind of life online you have no privacy so just assume that

This sort of thing is going on all the time because it kind of is ever look something up on amazon and nowhere else and then all of a sudden you're getting ads for it on instagram and facebook ever wonder how that happens ever say something one time and then go to your facebook or instagram and start getting ads for it ever go somewhere and then start seeing ads for places that are nearby even though you've never been there before yes my friends you have no privacy and yes you can of course get your phone

But the reason you can find your phone with free apps is because you have no privacy it's kind of one of those robo-rust things where it's the snake eating itself you don't get one without the other so leave me a comment below are you going to keep your location information on do you need to be able to find your your phone at any time or do you make you feel really creepy that all of a sudden you can see where you were years ago like maybe some of you don't want to

Remember those things tell me in the comments below what do you think about that also i got some other videos if you're new to this channel i appreciate you coming by got some really cool videos here make sure you check them out see you next time peace and love
