If you have decided to follow someone’s location with the help of the iPhone, there are a lot of ways to do that. Some of these methods you certainly already know, but you maybe did not know they can also be used for this purpose, while for others you have never heard of but they would also be of help. To help you succeed, on any way, you will have to put some effort and consider how you will do it. No decision is easy, neither is this one.
Find My iPhone allows all those who have at least iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS or a newer model to locate (your) iPhone with a relative or a detailed location of the phone. In order for this method to function your iPhone must have an Internet connection, or at least has to be in an area with relatively good GSM signal and / or GPS signal coverage. To start on your iPhone tracking you will have to confirm that you really want your phone to send location of your phone on request. Primarily, this application was launched in cases of theft or loss of a phone, but it is obvious that in this way you can monitor other phones also (but usually close people’s iPhones, because you can easily reach them). Another good thing is that you can monitor multiple phones simultaneously.
If that is not enough to you, and you want something “more promising” – other applications that you can hear or read about on the internet, are most commonly used as the classic monitoring application. There are applications that can be downloaded on AppStore for free, and they will allow you to see the location of friends who allow it, but only those who also use this application – such as for example FindMyFriends app is. When you access the home page it will be shown to you where are your friends (with the help of the GPS locator).
Although in most countries monitoring without the knowledge of the person who is being followed is not legal, at jailbraked phone may be encountered applications that allow it. It requires greater effort when it comes to installation. This is not something about often was written, primarily because of the law, so that person who decides to follow someone with no knowledge of that person will have to investigate and inquire about these applications on her own.
