These days, losing your phone is like losing your hand, literally meaning. Whatever you do, you need your phone. It can be to find a new dining place, communicate with business partners, simply listen to music and many other things where phone helps us do things faster.
In an era of technology, the most common mistake is not making preparations. Whatever you do in your life, the most important thing is to be ready. Why am I saying this; simply because in order to find your phone later, you need to prepare today. Therefore you should protect your phone in the first place.
I will give you some solutions to the problem, and you can feel free to try it out and let us know in the comment section which one helped you the most!
So here I am showing you a couple of simple steps on how to track your iPhone only by phone number.
Throughout all apps and methods that I have tried for this purpose to give you proper feedback, here are some:
iMap – one of the most reliable of its kind to track your iPhone
This app usually helps people track someone they care about; that’s why it was created to protect. However, since you can’t use the “Find my iPhone” option on your phone, which is obviously missing, we need to use an alternative to track your iPhone. This app allows you to simply type in your phone number and find the device or the person. In addition, app has some additional features that can come in handy.
You can choose between two “View options” where one option presents you a map with pinned possible locations of your phone, and the other shows you potential addresses of your phone.
This app can as well show you when some of your contact numbers are nearby. Through this app, you’ll be able to get directions for the given location, like navigation. The app allows you to enter your favorite locations in the city, such as the “Starbucks” store, and “iMap” will show your closest location to that place and track your iPhone.
NOTE: This app requires iOS 8.1 or later, and it has 9.99$ fee*
iCloud tracking of your iPhone
Apple devices are known for it’s iCloud, where everything is stored, and you can download it for Windows or Apple devices. By signing in with your credentials, you can get access to your phone location that should be shown by “Google maps.” A fantastic feature when you track your iPhone with the iCloud is that you can send message to the phone, change the password and block it. Also, as the last option you can delete information from the phone. If you think you lost it in your room, apartment, or another last known place, you can turn on the alarm.
Anyway, you need to download “Find my iPhone” before using this option.
- Login to the iCloud with your Apple ID and your password.
- Open “Find my iPhone” app with green radar icon
- You should see a green dot on the maps with the possible location of your phone and the “I” sign beside it. By clicking on that “I” sign, you’ll get additional options available.
- If you think that phone is lost in the house, you can click on “Play sound or send message” to get notified and find your phone, but if you think it’s not in your home, you can send a message to the device that it’s lost. If you want to lock your phone and create a code to unlock it, click on “Remote Lock “. You can tap “Erase phone” if you wish to delete all your data from the device.
Spyine – Accurately track your iPhone
The most important thing is that you can track your phone device without a phone device, meaning through your web browser. Spyine is a web app that allows you to get access to your phone through the any browser or another phone or a PC. Spyine dashboard is straightforward, and all updates are directly imported to the dashboard. So you can get access to it anywhere, anytime.
This app can give you precise location tracking through virtual maps connected to Google’s 3D street view for best results. The app can track location logs, including movement around the city, direct addresses, and geolocation in a previous few days or weeks. Timestamps are a crucial part of this “investigation” where you can track the time and location of your phone. If you have IMEI or MCC number, that would be perfect for your situation because this app can follow those as well and give you even more precise results.
