Lots and lots of people want to know the location of their loved ones and most of them want to do it discreetly.
Although it’s possible to track someone’s location with Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp too, you need to take the physical access of the phone or tell the target person to share their location. But this destroys the whole point of doing it secretly.
All the methods you will find on the internet either demand physical access to the phone at least once. But I have come up with an app that does the job with just the phone number of the target person, no demand for physical access or location request, nothing of that type.
The software comes by the name GEOfinder. Read our GEOfinder review to know how the app will track someone’s location remotely with a phone number and if it’s worth giving a shot or not.

GEOfinder Review: How To Track Someone’s Location With Phone Number?
There’s a spy app that comes by the name uMobix which tracks the target cell phone activities after you install the app on the target device.
But we are not going to use uMobix today. Instead, we will use the GEOfinder app of uMobix that is especially build to track the target device location by proving the phone number.
As the GEOfinder app simply works by sending a message, it can work with all the cell phones be it Android or iPhone.
So regardless of what device you use, you can use the GEOfinder app.
Creating An Account On The App
You won’t find the GEOfinder plan of uMobix on their main website. You need to access it by going to geofinder.mobi.
Here you need to enter the phone number whose location you want to track and click on FIND.
This will take you to the page where you will see very limited information and the location information is encrypted and you need to click on CREATE ACCOUNT to continue further.
Finally, make the payment for your GEOfinder account to track someone’s location via phone number.
Tracking The Target Person’s Location With Phone Number
Now to track the location of your lover or your teen with GEOfinder, you need to send a message to the target phone from the GEOfinder app.
GEOfinder sends a message to the target person in such a way that it seems like a system-generated message. So, the target person won’t be suspicious of granting the location permission.
You can make changes to the ‘Sender‘ and ‘Text message‘ fields that the app has prefilled but we recommend you to keep them as it is. If you plan to edit the text message just make sure you don’t remove the %link% part at the end of the message. Then enter the phone number of the target person and click on Send sms.
Make sure that the phone number you enter is correct as the system can only generate this location tracking message once every three hours due to security purposes.
A message will now be sent on the target person’s cell phone with the sender as ‘System‘ that says “To improve GPS services accuracy settings update required. Update in one click.” Along with this message, a link is also given that the target person needs to click.
This increases the chances of them clicking on the link and sharing their location with you via GEOfinder.
If they fail to click that link intentionally or by mistake, their location will not be shared with you. So you need to make sure that they click on that link no matter what. This is the only hard part because after that, their location will be shared with you and they won’t be aware of that.
After they click on the link, they will be shown that their location has been calibrated successfully.
Now in your GEOfinder account, their current location will be shown to you remotely on a big map.
There’s a very slight chance that you get the wrong location at first. So to make sure you have their correct location, refresh the page for once.
The big pointer on the map is a place where your lover or your teen is situated right now.
Just below the map, you can see the location history of your target person. To know where actually those longitude and latitude points are situated, you can open the location by clicking on the Map View option.
Other information on the page includes “phone number” whose location was searched, “state” if the location was delivered or not, longitude, latitude, date delivered, date detected, and map view.
If you are completely unaware of the target person whose location you want to know, then you might also be interested to know the basic information about that number. This includes the name of the country, their state, carrier company of the number, and status (if the number is valid or not).
Unlike spy apps that have different plans, GEOfinder has a single plan that’s similar for all the devices and operating systems. The plan costs you $31.99/month which in my opinion is a bit higher considering that you only get the location tracking feature.
Use GEOfinder App Appropriately
As the GEOfinder app does not require any physical access to the target phone and the tracking is done with just a link, you might get swayed to see the location of people you barely know.
Well, this is not how this app is meant to be used. Make sure you know the target person personally. And it would be best if the target person is aware that you are tracking their location.
