We store a huge amount of personal information on our smartphones and mobile devices including contact information, personal details and even working materials. When you lose such a device it often feels as though your heart just skipped a beat and when you know that the device has been stolen that feeling increases tenfold. The only thing that can soothe this feeling is the thought of being able to catch the thief. Now thanks to mobile phone tracking software it is possible for you to play detective and find the thief yourself. The information you gather can be handed to law enforcement to apprehend the criminal and return you phone.

If you have phone tracking app like mSpy on your mobile device, you will be able to use GPS tracking to pinpoint exactly where your phone is in real time. The movement of whoever is in possession of your mobile phone will now be plotted on a map allowing you to see exactly where they are. That does not mean you should go and break down their door of course, but you can hand this information over to the police who should be able to act on the information and make an arrest.

The majority of thieves will not be able to risk using the phone or mobile device that they have stolen, even if it is their intention to sell it afterwards. In the case of mobile phones, they usually switch out the SIM card immediately thinking that this protects them, but mobile phone tracking apps are smarter than that! Applications like mSpy will continue to monitor activity even if a new SIM card is fitted. The software is installed on the phone itself not the SIM, you will even be notified when the SIM is changed. This means that you will even have access to the calls and texts made and received by the thief on their own SIM card!

The main concern may not be getting the phone back, after all it is most likely insured anyway, but what is really worrying is the information stored on the phone. It could be that the thief now has access to banking and other sensitive information depending on how you use your mobile device. If this gets into the wrong hands you could be in a tight spot. However, most phone tracking apps also have remote SMS commands which will allow you to lock the phone or even wipe all of the data from the phone with a single command sent by SMS. This need not mean that you have lost the data, as it is also the case that everything is copied to your online dashboard by the software.

You may previously only have considered using phone tracking software to monitor someone else’s phone, but there are also many reasons to consider adding it to your own phone as well. Phone tracking apps can add an additional level of security to your mobile device.
