Being able to track the movements of a person or a car on a satellite map, bugged with a transreceiver, was stuff you watched in spy movies. Today, GPS tracking devices are available that can actually trace your location anywhere on Earth. Even cell phones are now enabled with GPS tracking and their location can be tracked on an online interface, with detailed maps. Now there are several free GPS cell phone locator software programs, made available online, which you can install on your phone, to track its location and make it visible to your close friends and family members.

About Free GPS Cell Phone Search

When facilities for tracking cell phones online for free, pop up on the Internet, some people raised concerns about it being used for nefarious purposes. However, a close study of such online services will reveal, that adequate security measures have been taken to prevent any such thing from happening. Once the software is installed on a cell phone, the location can be tracked online, only after entering a login name and password.

Unless the login name and password is hacked, there is no reason to worry about the free cell phone tracking software account falling into the hands of anybody else. Take care to use secure terminals when logging in to view mobile phone location and use a complicated alphanumeric password, which makes it harder to hack.

Also, one thing that needs to be made clear, is that tracking anybody's cell phone location, without their knowledge is illegal and punishable by law. However, in certain cases, like parents who need to keep a tab on the whereabouts of their children or people tracking their erring spouses, the knowledge of how to track cell phone location without them knowing is useful. I have seen cases where free GPS cell phone locator software programs have been life savers, by finding missing people.

You can track cell phone for free using any of the programs listed below and locate friends easily, as well as keep track of your children's movements around town. Here are the three of the best services you could use.

Google Latitude
The Google GPS cell phone locator software, known as 'Google Latitude' was launched recently. Though it works with GPS enabled phones, this service can even work without a GPS chip installed in your phone. Install it directly from the Google Latitude website and track the cell phone locations of your friends and family, who have subscribed to the service.

If you want to document your travel by tracking your cell phone movement around town or elsewhere, what you need to install on your phone is the Buddyway phone application. It lets you track your movement on Google maps and even view the travel routes on Google 3D. You can share your travel routes and notes with friends and family, who are also subscribed to it.

Designed with the simple objective of helping people track their location and share it with friends and family, Glympse is one of the best free GPS mobile phone systems to be launched in recent times. It lets you track the movement of friends online and save a lot of time you normally spend in just searching for people.

You can choose any one of the above services to track the whereabouts of your children, family members and close friends. Having personally used Buddyway and Google Latitude myself, these programs are highly recommended. Not only is Google Latitude the easiest program to use, its USP is that it can be used on non GPS enabled phones too. Get one of these programs and stop worrying about getting lost or losing track of your family and friends' whereabouts. Try it out!
