We all feel the need to keep our loved ones safe. The world outside can be a dangerous place. However, you can’t always be there with your loved ones 24/7. Fortunately, thanks to modern technology, you don’t have to be there physically to look out for someone.  

Your loved ones probably own a GPS-enabled smartphone, which they take with them everywhere. You can track the smartphone to keep an eye on them. 

Here are 4 compelling reasons why getting a cell phone tracker is a smart decision:  

  1. Opt for two-way location sharing with your partner 

You want to keep your partner safe. If your partner travels, whether for work or otherwise, there’s always a chance they could get into trouble outside. The trouble can be minor like a car breakdown or major like an accident. 

You can opt for an app that offers two-way location tracking and sharing. That way, you’ll always know where they are and if they are safe. If your partner thinks you are a worry-wart and won’t agree to that, reading this article on how to track a cell phone location without them knowing might help. 

  1. Keep an eye on your children

Kids can be reckless, as you probably know. They can also be immature. They make easy targets for scammers, criminals, and bullies. According to the WHO, up to 1 billion children suffer from some sort of mistreatment by the time they turn 18

A cell phone tracker can help you keep an eye on your kids and be there for them when they need you. There are plenty of parental control apps out there that come with built-in trackers. 

  1. Meet up with your friends outside in a hassle-free way

Have you heard of location-sharing apps? They’re all the rage these days. Some popular examples are Apple’s Find My Friends and Glympse. These apps allow you to share your live location with a friend. Your friends can track you on a virtual map. 

The live-tracking feature is enormously useful when you’re meeting friends at a new place or in a strange new city. You can just find their icon on the map and go to them. 

  1. Travel safer and receive faster emergency assistance 

Location trackers make travel far safer and enjoyable. When you are on a journey, it’s a nice feeling knowing your family knows where you are. They can find you in case of a minor emergency, like your car breaking down or you running out of cash. 

Further, modern Android and iOS smartphones come with an emergency assistance feature. It works based on your phone’s GPS tracker. You will have to set it up manually. In case of an emergency, you can send your location to emergency assistance services like the police. Your loved ones also get a text.


Cell phone trackers have many other uses, like making your business more productive by tracking your employees (legally) or learning more about the places around you. The technology is very accessible, seeing as it’s already built into your smartphone. Phone trackers, we’re sure you’ll agree, can certainly make life easier.
