Gone are the days when mobile phones were used simply to make calls and send short messages.
Nowadays, smart phones perform more functions than the aforementioned. You may use them to browse the net, do some office work, check your e-mail messages, and a lot more through the various applications that may be easily installed in your device.
One of the best applications in the market, perhaps, is the Cellphone tracker which is mainly used, as the name implies, for tracking mobile phones. Basically, it is used to know the exact location of the phone. If you have kids, this is really useful for you as you can keep track of your childrenâ??s whereabouts any time of the day. As long as the phone is turned on, you would not have a hard time locating your kids. This means that this application may add extra protection to you and your loved ones.
Apart from security, phone tracking system may also be employed to recover lost phones. This could actually work even after the phone has been lost or stolen. You just need to install a specific app; wait for the message that would be automatically sent to your Gmail address; and update the location of the phone every after ten minutes by sending the message â??locateâ? to the lost phone. The information provided by this system is pretty accurate that it can give you the details of your phoneâ??s location. This works effectively as long as your carrier supports it and the phone that you are trying to recover is turned on.
This app has many advantages. Since it basically functions like GPS, it is relatively easy for the user to trace the phoneâ??s almost exact location. The security it provides is also exceptional.
Some people say that this app may be used to invade oneâ??s privacy. While this is true, if ethical considerations are observed, this should not be a problem.
Weighing the pros and cons, it may be concluded that the advantages this app offers certainly outweigh its disadvantages.
