Today I would like to talk about an important step that you’ll have to take if you want to make use of GPS cell phone tracking applications on your smartphone. The most accurate way for these applications to determine the location of your phone is through its built-in GPS receiver. What you might not realize, is that there is a setting on most phones that needs to be turned on in order for the application to be able to make use of the built-in GPS receiver and report the location of your phone. I believe that all phones have GPS turned on by default for emergency personnel to be able to locate you if you ever have to call 911. This is called “E911” or “Enhanced 911”. You can’t turn this setting off but there is usually a separate setting that you have to turn on that makes the GPS receiver accessible to third-party tracking applications. For the sake of demonstration purposes, I’ll be explaining how to do this on my Google Android powered smartphone… Read More »

If the very thought of this concept sends shivers up your spine, you are certainly not alone. For some reason, people don’t seem to have a problem with GPS tracking as a general rule but when you start talking about implanting a tracking device in a human, most people suddenly start finding reasons to oppose the idea.

If you think about it even more, you’ll realize how dependent the average person is becoming on… Read More »
