Some free phone locator programs include Find My iPhone, Android Device Manager and Prey. Mobile phone users can also locate their cellphones using programs such as Find My Mobile, mSpy and Life360. Users should set up their devices with the correct settings before their phones are lost or stolen.
An Apple iPhone customer can download the Find My iPhone software application to her mobile phone and use the app to find her cellphone. A map displays the approximate location of the user's phone for a quick reference. Find My iPhone is also available to track online when the user signs into her iCloud account and can send a signal to the phone to play a sound.
A Life360 user can locate her mobile phone by using the app's GPS tracker. The tracker also allows the user to find the location of friends and family members within her family circle. If the phone becomes lost or stolen, a consumer can find her phone by going online and getting directions to the location of the phone.
The mSpy application allows a user with an Android, iOS, MAC OS or Windows operating system to locate a cellphone. This tracking also enables users to track previously traveled routes with its GPS locator feature.
