Best GPS Mobile Tracker Apps

Let us start by asking a simple question. Why do you want to track a mobile phone? There can be some reasons like:

  • You lose your phone, or some thief steals it. You will want to track it.
  • You want to track your children or loved ones for their safety.
  • You want to catch hold of your spouse’s infidelity.
  • You want to ensure that your employee does not involve into business espionage.

You may have many more reasons, but we think that the four reasons above are enough.

But, did you know that tracking someone’s phone with explicit written consent from that person is illegal? So, you should be careful. However, if you want to ensure that you can easily track your phone, you are free to install any GPS mobile tracker app you want. No one will tell you anything. Whatever the reason be, we will give you a list of best GPS mobile tracker apps you can get.

Let us start.

Best GPS Mobile Tracker Apps

Before we start, we will like to say that there are two options for you. You can go for free mobile tracking apps, or you can go for premium or paid GPS mobile tracker apps. We will start with the free one.

Free apps

1. GadgetCouncil Tracker: GadgetCouncil is a website which has a mobile tracker tool and also has an Android app. It is free. You can use the web application to get a fair idea of the approximate location of your mobile device. GadgetCouncil’s mobile tracker application is best in case you lose your phone or misplace it and want to get an approximate location without spending any money. It can also come in handy if someone steals your phone. Using this web application can help you to narrow down on an area where your phone is present. It can also tell you the last position where your phone went (if someone steals it). That’s all you can achieve with this web application.

While it may not sound that robust and perfect, consider this – if someone steals your phone, you can use the information from this web application to let the police personnel know. It will help the police to narrow down on the location of the thief.

We repeat – GadgetCouncil mobile tracker cannot track anything other than the location, which too may not be accurate. You cannot track SMS, calls, photos, and videos, etc. For that, you will need premium software/apps that you need to install on your phone.

2. Glympse: Glympse is one rare app that uses GPS to give you powerful tracking features. It is free. Just like GadgetCouncil, all that Glympse will do is track location. It cannot track calls or SMS or media files present in the phone. Glympse has real-time monitoring capabilities as it keeps running in the background of the phone, maintaining a very active radar connection. The app also allows for real-time navigation. So, if you are in someplace new, you can use the app to navigate around with ease. One problem (that is not a problem) is that only those people with whom you share your information can track you.

3. Find My Lost Phone: Find My Lost Phone is one of the most advanced GPS mobile tracker apps you can find without shelling out a dime. With capabilities like real-time location tracking and integrated navigational assistance to assist the tracking process, the app can be a life-savior for many people. Compatible with both Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS devices, the app is capable of pinpointing the exact locations of a device. However, high building and band weather can sometimes cripple the apps ability to track.

Paid apps

4. Spyzie: Spyzie is one of the most powerful mobile tracking apps in the market that uses GPS tracking. If you lose your phone, the software, through its web interface (for which you do not need physical access to your phone), can tell you the exact address of the current location of your phone. No just location tracking, the app is capable of tracking SMS, calls and social media messages as well. You need to install the app on your phone. There is no need to root your device to use this GPS mobile tracking app. Unfortunately, if you have a Nokia phone or a Blackberry phone, the app will not work. To use the app, you have to pay up to 9.99 USD per month!

5. FamiSafe: Yet another premium app, FamiSafe is for those who want to track the activities of their kids. With real-time tracking and the capability of virtual geo-fencing, FamiSafe is a one-of-a-kind app that you will always want if you have children at home. The app also allows you to block harmful content on the phone. You can remotely control the app. As a drawback, the app is a battery hog. For using this app, you need to pay USD 9.99 a month.

6. MobiStealth: Just like Spyzie, MobiStealth is more than a plain GPS mobile tracker app. It can track a mobile phone even if the phone has no signal. The app is more of a spy app that can help you track SMS, browsing history, call logs, media files, email, and more. Mob Stealth is a premium product, and you need to pay $79 for using the app.

7. MobileSpy: As the name suggests, MobileSpy is a spy cum GPS mobile tracker app. It is great if you want to spy on your children or anyone else. Of course, the GPS part of the phone can help you to find the exact location of your device. The app can track all activities of a device on which you install it such as call logs, social media, cyberbullying, SMS, etc. You can get the app by paying USD 49.97.


GPS mobile tracker apps are a great way to ensure that you can get an approximate or accurate result while tracking a phone. We strongly suggest that when you try to install a tracking app on someone else phone, take permission. If you don’t take permission, you can land into some serious troubles.
