Mobile Number Tracer Tool | FAQ
We have been getting a lot of questions about this mobile number tracing tool. Here’s a list of some of the most frequently asked questions and their answers.
• Is it possible to find out the exact location of a mobile phone number? Why do you show only the state of a mobile number, can you show the city, district or exact address of the mobile number? Can we find the name of the person who owns a mobile from the mobile number?
Its impossible to trace the exact location of a mobile number using this tool, or any other available tool. This tool will only display the circle of the mobile number where it was first registered. Generally a person will register a SIM in the state where he/she lives, the tool is very accurate in tracking the location of a mobile number.
Its impossible to trace city, district, address or any other geographical details or name of the person using a mobile number as its not stored anywhere.
• There is this abc tool which is much better then your mobile number tracer. It even displays the name of the mobile owner and its exact address. So stop saying that its not possible to show those details and add these to your tool.
There are two type of such ‘exact location tracking’ tools available currently.
First are mobile apps that display the name and address and many other details of a person just from its mobile number. These apps work like this: When you install any such app on your mobile, they take all the information in your phone book and saves it to their server. As more and more people install the app, their database starts growing and one fine day, they can show you the name and address of any phone number in India. You can try these apps, but I will not do it personally due to privacy issues.
Second are those apps and tools that ask you your name, address and mobile phone number before they allow you to trace the location of any other mobile number. Next time if someone tries to trace ‘your’ mobile number, they have all the info to display. Thus, these apps and tools are basically robbing peter to pay paul. I will also not use any such mobile tracking apps and tools for privacy issues.
Since we value the privacy of our readers and visitors, we do not follow these methods, and thus we can only show the info that is ‘safe’.
Update: There are also some ‘safe apps’ that help you track the location of a mobile number. For example, this Android app lets you find the current location of a phone caller from its mobile number. We regularly post about such apps and many other useful apps. Subscribe to HackTrix to stay updated.
