To turn it of you will have to go to setting, general, location service, and turn it off on the app you don't want the tracking to be, or all of them. please note the as long a your phone is with is battery apple can still monitor your location at all time (even if you turn off the 3G or take your sim out).

I need to track my iphone 6s


Hello Thabisa,

Here's how you can track your iPhone:

  1. Go to Find My iPhone on iCloud.com.If you don't see Find My iPhone on iCloud.com, your account just has access to iCloud web-only features. To gain access to Find My iPhone and other iCloud features, set up iCloud on your iOS device or Mac.
  2. Click All Devices. In the list, the dot next to the device indicates its status:
    • A green dot means it's online. If the device can be located, you also see the time it was last located.
    • A gray dot means it's offline. If the device was recently online, you also see the time it was last located. If the device has been offline for over 24 hours, you see "Offline."
  3. Select the device you want to locate.
    • If the device is online and can be located, its approximate location is shown on the map.
    • If Find My iPhone can't locate the device, the last known location is displayed for up to 24 hours. Select "Notify me when found" to get an email when it comes online.

Is there a way to track a lost cell phone?


Hey Maria, what kind of cell phone is it? If you've lost your iPhone, you still have a chance to get it back with the help of Find My Phone app.

Activation Lock, available on devices running iOS 7 or later, is tied to Find My iPhone. When Find My iPhone is turned on, Activation Lock is on. When setting up a new device, Find My iPhone is automatically enabled, but you can check to make sure it's turned on by following the below steps: Open the Settings app, tap iCloud, and set the Find My iPhone slider to On. You'll need to enable this setting on each device you want to track.

Then you can track and find your lost iPhone with the steps below:
1. Use the Find My iPhone app on another iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Or you can sign in to icloud.com/find on a Mac or PC.

2. Tap the "My Devices" button at the top-left corner of the window on an iPad or iPhone. Select your lost iPhone from the list of devices (If you have other devices associated with your Apple ID, such as an iPad, it will be listed here as well). Or click the Devices menu at the top of the page if you are using the iCloud website.
Note: If your iPhone cannot be located because it is turned off or out of network, check the "Notify me when found" box. As soon as the iPhone is turned back on and connected to a cellular or wireless network, you will receive a notification at your Apple ID email address.

3. If your iPhone is online and "Find My iPhone" can locate it, the map will center on your iPhone's last-reported location. You can use this map to determine where you may have left it.

4. If your iPhone is lost nearby, you can click or tap the "Play Sound" button to make the iPhone play a notification sound. This will be played at maximum volume, which can hopefully help you track it down. Tap "OK" on your iPhone to stop the sound from playing.

5. You can also choose "Lock Mode" to lock the iPhone's screen with either your preset passcode or a new one if you don't have one set. You can also add a contact number and message that will be displayed on the screen if a nice person finds.

6. If the iPhone is gone and you don't think you'll be able to recover it, you can choose "Erase iPhone" to wipe your iPhone of all your data. This is a last-resort option, and should only be chosen if you are worried sensitive or personal information will be revealed. If your iPhone is passcode-locked, your information is not retrievable.

Find my lost iphone


Did you enable the find my iPhone feature? If so go to Apple's website and you can track your phones location.
Also, try calling the people that were in your meeting. Perhaps one of them saw it.

How can I track my children's iPhone location?


I know that iKeyMonitor can track a iPhone's location. However, it needs you to manually install it on the target phone.

How do I track and get gps location on a cell phone for free when all I know is the number?


On an iPhone you have a Free App to download called Find iPhone.
Generally this is used for locating a lost or stolen iPhone, using another iPhone or Computer and with the ability to remotely play a sound to help locate the device or Delete all the Data on that iPhone remotely.
If you have 2 iPhones or more in a family and they share the same Apple ID Account that you use to purchase Apps (through iTunes) and to Manage & Backup your data & Apps. If both iPhones use the same Apple ID & Password then the "Find iPhone" App can be used to check and see the GPS position of the other iPhone on a map.
The tracking is not saveable as a file. Also www.icloud.com can be used to log in and see the location of all devices in the family (on the same Apple Account).
There is also an App called Find Friends that allows you to track friends current location but it does require & request their permission when first used.
You could also get a free App and install it on the other persons iPhone and simply have it running in the background to remember all GPS location data during a period of time. e.g. a "Pedometer" to track a persons movements. You would require access to the iPhone at some point to recover that data by plugging in to a computer using iTunes to recover the location data. Running some GPS Apps in the background will noticeably reduce the battery as all GPS tracking devices do.
Figure out the details by installing the Pedometer or iTrack App on your own phone first.

Can any one track iphone through imei no


No, thankfully. The only way you can be tracked using your iphone is if you allow apps to track your location or if your cell carrier gets a warrant from the police for your location
