Here is a way through which you can track a cell phone without the user ever finding out that they are being tracked.
Out of all the ways I am going to mention, this is certainly my favorite method. It enables me to get every inch of the target phone’s data and the user never finds out about it.
When you know about it, I know you are going to be a fan of it as well.
1.1 Spyic – The Hidden Ninja App that Keeps an Eye on The Target 24×7
You might never have heard of Spyic before. However, today you are going to be glad that you found out about Spyic from me.
Spyic is a phone monitoring app that is used by millions of people all over the world. It has a lot of features that provide you with every bit of data on the target phone constantly.
It is a web-based service that constantly keeps a watch on the target user and his cellphone activity. Not only you will know where the person is, but Spyic will also give you so many other valuable data.
If you want to monitor your child, Spyic will let you know if your kid is safe from online predators and other negative elements of society. If you want to monitor your significant other, Spyic will reveal to you if they are cheating for you.
And the best part? You don’t have to root or jailbreak the target device in order for Spyic to monitor it. This is a very unique feature and I didn’t find it in any of its competitors.
Spyic is more or less like your best friend in any scenario. Here is an idea of what it has to offer. (You don’t have to just read about it. Watch Spyic in action in this free online demo here)
1.2 How Spyic Track Cell Phone Without Them Knowing
To understand how Spyic works without the user finding out about it, let us take a peek into how Spyic works for Android and iOS.
For iOS Target Devices
For iOS devices like iPhones and iPads, Spyic’s iOS solution requires no app installation in the target device at all!
iOS devices come with an inbuilt iCloud backup feature. Spyic uses this backup data to extract important information about the user.
Therefore, since you are not accessing the target iOS device at all, the target user has no chance of finding out his location is being tracked.
For Android Target Phones
If the target device runs Andriod, Spyic for Android requires you to download the Spyic app on the target phone. However, this app always runs in stealth mode so the target user has no chance of finding out about it.
To start with, the app size is less than 2 MB. The installation process takes less than a minute. Therefore, you are completely safe there.
Once the app is installed, the app icon vanishes from the app drawer. The user will never find the app in their app list. Only you can start the app with a secret code.
Not only that but when the app is running in the background it consumes no battery at all. The user is never suspicious that they have such an app on their phone.
Lastly, if you ever feel like you want to uninstall it from the target phone, you don’t have to access the phone at all. You can uninstall it with a single click from Spyic control panel. This control panel opens in any web browser of your choice.
**Beware of apps that offer Android monitoring and phone tracking service without any app installation on the target Android phone. This is not technically possible, so the app is probably a scam or a fraud trying to download viruses into your system**
1.3 How to Secretly Track a Cell Phone Location Without Them Knowing
You can follow these easy steps to track a cell phone location through Spyic.
- Sign up for Spyic and get a subscription plan for your device.
- Follow the simple on-screen guide. It will guide you through the setup process.
- a.) For iOS target phone, enter the iCloud credentials of the target device and verify. Select the device you wish to monitor that is associated with the iCloud account.b.) For Android target device, download and install Spyic app on the target phone through the link mentioned in the setup wizard. It will take less than a minute.
- Hit ‘Start’ and you are ready to begin monitoring the device!
Once you have the Spyic dashboard on your screen, you will find the Location Tracker module right there on the left side of the panel.
Spyic’s location tracker will update you with the live location of the device. Not only that, but you will also see the recent locations that the person has visited. Every location has a timestamp so you know the exact time of the visit.
Geo-fencing is a cool feature that you get besides the location tracking. Through Geo fencing, you can set a geographical perimeter for the target device’s location. If the device crosses this perimeter, you will get an alert.
As you can see, the installation process is so simple and the features are very unique. Besides the feature, there are many other things that make Spyic my top pick.
1.4 Spyic Is The Best Cell Phone Location Tracker On The Internet. Here’s Why…
These are the reasons that make Spyic the best phone location tracker and the #1 phone monitoring app in the world:
No Root or Jailbreak:
Spyic does not require you to root the target Android phone or Jailbreak the target iOS. It offers all its features without any need to compromise the device’s security and data. I find it really cool and no one else offers it.
Spyic has a completely web-based interface. You can open the Spyic dashboard on any web browser in the world, provided it has an internet connection. You don’t have to install any app on your PC or phone to monitor someone’s location.
Spyic is so cheap that you will feel it is practically free. Its features are, by far, worth more than what they charge. I saw some apps offering fewer features and charging double, triple, and even five times as much.
As I described before, Spyic is always working in stealth mode. Whether it is an Android phone or an iOS, the target user never gets suspicious that you are tracking their location.
No Technical Knowledge:
Spyic has an easy setup guide and convenient working procedure. You don’t need any technical knowledge to use Spyic. All you have to do are a few clicks here and there.
There are many more benefits. However, I would rather that you find them out for yourself when you start using Spyic.
1.4 What Else Will Spyic Do For Me?
Spyic’s functionality isn’t just limited to location tracking. With its high end features, it has so much more to offer.
Spyic has a unique keylogger feature that records all the keystrokes that the user has typed. You will know everything from their search history to their typed messages, usernames, and passwords.
Spyic’s call monitor feature keeps a track of all the calls that are made or received by the user. You will see all call details like call duration, caller identity, time stamps, etc. You can even record the phone calls to know what they are talking about.

Social media monitor has dedicated modules for Facebook, Snapchat, Whatsapp, etc. You will see all the chats of the user in this section. You will know the messages that they are sending and receiving. You will even see the messages that the user has deleted.
Website monitor shows you whatever the user browses on the internet. You can see the entire browser history of the user. You can even block access to any specific websites if you wish.

Part 2: How to Track a Cell Phone Without Them Knowing
Of course, you might already have fallen in love with Spyic. Probably you have started using it by now.
However, for the rest of you who are still reading, I still have more ways through which you can track a cell phone location without the user ever finding out.
2.1 Cocospy: The Hidden Detective App That Works From The Shadows
Cocospy is one of the best phone tracking app that is very easy to use. You don’t need to have any technical knowledge to operate Cocospy.
What I love about this app is that it doesn’t require you to root or jailbreak the target device. Further, it also operates in stealth mode all the time. With Cocospy, you can track someone by cell phone number without them knowing.
The thing that makes me curious is the number of features that they offer. It makes me wonder how can they give away so much for so cheap?
At first thought, I felt that it must have a catch somewhere. It could be that it isn’t as good as they promise.
However, after I tried the app, I found that it is even better than they claim it to be. I got a yearly package for Cocospy (I was worried they might increase the price realizing it is worth way more).
If you are curious as to how it works, you can check the free Cocospy demo here and find out for yourself. You might rush to get the yearly package like me too.
Part 3: App to Track Phone Without Them Knowing
I know some of you are just looking for a free cell phone tracker to check up on someone’s location now and then. I am out here to help every single one of you. Therefore, I have a solution for them too.
This method will enable them to secretly track the target phone if it is an iOS phone, i.e. iPhone or iPad. It is a simple method and can give you constant access to the iPhone location for free.
However, it lacks many other features that come standard with apps like Spyic or Cocospy. This is a very basic method that will only show you the device’s location.
Also, if you have an Android phone, you can directly move to Part 4.
Here it is…
Find My iPhone – The Free iPhone Location Tracker
iPhone users can use the pre-installed ‘Find My iPhone’ app. This app can be seen in the app list.
Users can use this application to find any iPhone, provided they have the iCloud credentials of the iPhone they want to find.
How to track an iPhone by phone number without them knowing
To use Find My iPhone, all you have to do is launch the app and login with the iCloud credentials of the target device.
The app will display a list of devices connected with the iCloud account. Click on the device of which you want to track the location.
You will find its location on the map. It will give you additional options as well like playing sound on the target device or erasing all its data.

Part 4: How to Secretly Track A Cell Phone Location for Free
While the previous method works for iOS users, I know my Android readers might be feeling a bit left out.
Don’t worry, as your friend I am not going to leave any of you out. Here is a free method to track the location of an Android phone for free.
Android Device Manager
Like Find My iPhone is for iOS, Google has a dedicated platform where you can check any device’s location. This is called the ‘Android Device Manager’. Any Android device’s location can be checked through the ‘Find My Device’ page of the Android Device Manager.
To check the target phone’s location, visit the Find My Device page here. Sign in with the Google ID of the target phone.
Once you have done that, you will see the page of the phone linked with that Google ID. The location will be displayed on the right side. It also has basic features like play sound on and erase data of the target device.
Part 5: Track Someone by Cell Phone Number Without Them Knowing for Free
Now that you know so many ways to secretly track a mobile phone location for free, you must be thinking of getting started already.
However, before you do, I have these five tips that you should keep in mind before you track someone’s mobile phone location without them knowing.
Free vs Paid Ways:
You might have noticed that some of the ways that I suggested were free while the others were paid. And these did the same thing. So why use a paid way at all?
The answer to this question is simple. Paid ways offer so much more than location tracking. Even if you only wish to track location, apps like Spyic and Cocospy also have features like Geofencing.
These features are very helpful in the practical world. Further, do remember that these apps are automatically tracking the target phone even when you are sleeping or busy. Therefore, you have nothing to worry about.
To track someone by cell phone number without them knowing, you have to make sure that the location feature is active on the target device.
The location feature allows the target device to share its location with Google or Apple servers (depending on the OS they use). Therefore, you will only be able to see the device’s location if you have the location feature enabled for the target device.
Rooting and Jailbreaking:
There are many other apps and services on the internet that will let you track someone’s location, provided you root or jailbreak their device.
You should note that rooting or jailbreaking a phone compromises the security of the phone. Further, when there are ways like Spyic and Cocospy which can track a phone’s location without rooting or jailbreaking, there is no use to find inferior alternatives.
Therefore, don’t fall for any low-quality methods that offer you location tracking after rooting or jailbreaking.
Tracking Lost or Stolen Phone:
By analyzing the device’s location, you can know if your phone has been lost or stolen. This can be done by noting the device’s movement on the map.
If the pointer of the device is still, it means that your device was left somewhere and it is still lying there.
However, if your phone’s pointer is moving, it means that your phone has been stolen. You should seek the help of the authorities and not go out alone to find it. It can be a risky misadventure.
If you are using the location tracking feature to monitor your child’s or spouse’s activities, it is a good idea to combine it with data from other sources.
For example, if you are afraid that your spouse might be having an affair, you can also check their messages and social media accounts through Spyic.
This will give you a complete revelation about what the other person is up to.
Tracking someone’s phone is not a difficult thing to do. However, it is important to do it so that the other person should never know that you are tracking them.
If they find out, it can cause distrust in their minds and strain your relationship with them. Therefore, taking precautions is always necessary.
This is why I use Spyic. It is so secretive that the user never finds out that you have been monitoring them all the while.
