Free GPS Tracker for Android Phone

Post by Kaos Kid »

Hey folks, I'm wanting to install a free app on my Sammy, does anyone have firsthand ie: hands on knowledge of a free tracker app for the phone, so I can access from anywhere (home PC, another phone, etc.) to locate the phone? Of course when I google it I see various free apps being touted, but I'd like to shortcut to the best one for me so I don't have to waste a bunch of time trying one after another and having to learn each one's idiosyncrasies only to find that it isn't quite what is touted on the "lists".

It is for a pay-as-you-go tracfone, so I would like something that will work off of wifi, or at least using as little data as possible. Thanks for any knowledgeable information that you can provide.
I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:

Whatever happened to those? I can remember years back there was a commercial with people saying "where you at?" then they'd look on their phone and see a map with the person/phone they want to locate and a placemarker. they don't do those anymore?

ATT has the Secure Family thing. I imagine most of the others have similar availability because it is something they can charge you for. Most apps I believe are pay to use also. As for the tracfone stuff, I have no clue as I have never used one of those pay-as-you-need ones.

You can use the in-built google's Find my device feature. Just turn it on from your phone's setting. It is quite accurate. But if you want to use an app then Famisafe is an app I heard quite a lot about. You can try it if you want.

You should try MSpy. It enables you to view all the messages and monitor your child activity remotely with no hassle.

Thanks for your reply but $30/month for basic is hardly free--but then it turns out none of the "free apps" I checked on are truly free...

Having a Free GPS tracker on android is a very good idea. It helps us a lot. But if you want to know which is best, I can give you a good list. I have used almost all of them and am numbering them according to my views. So, try choosing by yourself.
1. Where's My Droid.
2. Geo-Tracker
3. Family Locator GPS Tracker

You mean - https://faq.whatsapp.com/android/chats/ ... n/?lang=en - the live location feature? I have never used whatsapp so I just googled and that came up.

Well that app is garbage and will probably get you banned from whatsapp if you use it so I would get rid of it and use the official app then you can use the gps feature I posted above.

I prefer using, Life360: Family Locator & GPS Tracker. Also, there are other alternatives as well such as iSharing: GPS Location Tracker and Connected - Family Locator - GPS Tracker too.
I personally use the Find my Phone. Family GPS Locator by Familo. It's freely available on Google Play Store. What do you use btw? whatsapp mod
