Track a Phone

It's possible to live a surprisingly uninhibited and multifaceted life while tracking your phone with a DIY project. It doesn't require any sophisticated tech, just a little ingenuity and good YouTube videos.


Prey is free to use for up to three devices, there are paid plans for more, and the service can be used across platforms for both computers and phones. After signing up, simply sync your devices, sit back, and relax. If your phone ever goes missing, all you have to do is find a computer, log into your account, and start tracking. Prey runs discreetly in the background and won’t track your phone’s location until you tell it to, so there is no need to worry about your privacy while the phone is in your possession. Recent updates improved network configurations, enabled TouchID and Face ID on iOS, and extended functionality to Chromebooks. The Camouflage feature has now been removed from Android.

Lookout combines security, tracking, and antivirus or malware protection. Headline features include the ability to record a phone’s last location right before the battery dies, a chance to back up contact data before a remote erase, and an option to snap a photo of any would-be thief and email it to yourself along with location data. Lookout provides Safe Wi-Fi and System Advisor features to protect against Wi-Fi attacks and to check your device to make sure the operating system is working properly. It’s free, but you can upgrade to Premium for $30 per year for features like safe browsing and breach reports — which send you alerts if a company, service, or app you use reports a data breach — or Premium Plus for $100 per year to get features like identity theft protection and lost wallet recovery.
