Part 3: Track iPhone without app using Google

Both Apple and Google are awfully fond of storing users' information in case of emergencies. As long as you've kept the Location On in your iPhone and the iPhone has access to the internet, Google would keep updating its location on its Google Timeline. You can then access that information about its last updated location online and follow the map to your iPhone!

How to track iPhone without app using Google's Timeline:

  1. Go to Google Timeline.
  2. Click on 'Today', or simply select the present date from the left hand panel.
  3. You'll find a list of updated location history for the entire day. Scroll down and select the latest location update.
  4. If you find that your phone is stationary, i.e., if the location has been the same for the previous updates, then you can go and get it. However, if you find that the location is moving, then you should contact authorities and get a few friends to help you track it down. It's likely your phone has been stolen.

Part 4: Protect Lost iPhone Data

If your location wasn't turned on in your iPhone, and if it didn't have the Find My iPhone app either, then it might be extremely difficult to track your iPhone, either with or without app. In this case, you can protect the data on your device using the following methods:

  1. Change your Apple ID and passwords immediately to prevent people from accessing your iCloud.
  2. Change the passwords on all the internet accounts that were logged into your account, all your email accounts, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
  3. Report a stolen or lost device to law enforcement. You need to also provide them with the serial number. This might help them find the iPhone, but it's mostly done to protect you in case your iPhone is used for illegal activities.
  4. Finally, report your iPhone as lost or stolen to the the Carrier so that they can quickly terminate the account so that it can't be used to place calls, or send texts, or access the internet.

Part 4: How to secretly track someone else's iPhone with your own iPhone

If you're a parent who wants to keep a secret but watchful eye on your child or teenager, or if you're a spouse who wants to keep tabs on where your husband/wife is going late at nights, you can actually secretly track their location via your own iPhone.

You can do this using the Find My Friends app. This isn't exactly a spy app, more of an app meant to keep up with friends and family, however it can also be used as a spy app, if you're clever. All you have to do is get some moments of physical access to the other person's iPhone. You have to install the app to their iPhone and your own as well. Then you share their location with your own iPhone, and that's it! You won't even get caught because they won't receive any updates about your movements, not unless you share your own location as well.

Read on to find out how to secretly track someone else's iPhone.

Step 5: Hide the Icon.
