How to find location from mobile number
To know the location from mobile, you must have the mobile number of that person. But it is not possible for the common man to do this. Because the GPS location of the mobile is stored on the IMEI number. Whenever your phone is stolen, you file an FIR with the police and leave your mobile number.
Whichever service provider your number belongs to (eg Vodafone, Idea, Jio) the police is associated with them. The customer service executive of the service provider knows the IMEI number from the mobile number.
The IMEI number is a type of ID that is assigned to each SIM. We will not discuss its details but you should know that as long as the SIM present in the mobile is active, the police can track its location. When the SIM is removed and thrown, it goes offline and it remains its last location.
Now you must be thinking that how do the police track the location? Providing an IMEI number is the job of the service provider. On getting that number, the police search by entering the IMEI number of the mobile SIM on their special software. This software connects to google map and the location is detected due to the sim being active.
After tracking online, only the service provider knows in whose name the SIM is registered. From the software, you can get the same information in whose name the SIM is with the tracking location and where it is said to be live now.
The common man does not have the authority because you need to know the IMEI number to track someone’s location and if you know the IMEI number, you also need to have software like police to track it.
You should stay away from people who ask to pay money to track it. Because such a website can extract your personal details and sell it to other companies. Like email, mobile number etc.
