In addition to being the most popular instant messaging platform in the world, WhatsApp also helps you locate a lost or stolen Smartphone. However, many users were unaware of the existence of this interesting feature which also helps to quickly identify the location of a person. How to locate a mobile phone via WhatsApp, both on Android and on iPhone? We are also going to discover an application which allows you to track a cell phone of your children, for example, to follow their position. The maneuvers are very simple to perform. You just need to follow the following instructions.
We are going to introduce you a perfectly legal method to find out the location of a cell phone using the WhatsApp application. But, for this to work, the owner of the mobile must first authorize the option to share his location. That is, this method will not work if you plan to spy on someone without their knowledge.
The WhatsApp platform therefore allows you to share your location with a single person, and even with a single contact within a discussion group.
Here’s how location is shared on the messaging app:
- Enter WhatsApp.
- Open the chat of the person you want to send your location to.
- Click the Attach button (it looks like a paperclip).
- Choose the “Location” icon.
- Click “Share real-time location” or “Share live location”. You can choose how long you want to share your location with this person
- Then select “Stop Sharing” when you want to end it.
If you want to know a person’s location throughout the day, just pick up their cell phone and share their location with you. This way you will know where your children and your partner are at all times.
NB : In case the application does not work for you, you can reinstall WhatsApp without losing chats or contacts.
WhatApp: locate a cell phone using Celular TR3
“Celular TR3” has been gaining popularity over the past few years. This is a program that functions as a WhatsApp locator.

- Download the Celular TR3 app on the cell phone you want to monitor.
- Then download it to your computer and open the software.
- Save your personal data on the server.
- Write down the person’s Gmail address and phone number in the corresponding boxes.

Have you lost your Smartphone and want to locate it quickly? It is possible to know the location of an iPhone without downloading any software.
- On your computer, open the browser and click on this link: https://www.icloud.com/
- Select “Find My iPhone”. You can also perform this process on an iOS device from the “Find My iPhone” app.
- Enter your iCloud login information.
- Select “All devices”.
- Click on the iPhone you want to find.
- You will see the actual location of your device or the last location recorded by GPS.
Once you’ve located your iPhone, select one of the following options:
- play the sound : select this option to make the Smartphone play a loud sound so that you can find it easily, if it is just around.
- lost mode : by pressing this button, the mobile will be blocked immediately. If it has been stolen, it will be locked and access will be difficult. You can even send a full-screen message to the person who found your cell phone if it just got misplaced. She can give it back to you.
- Delete data : in the event that you no longer have hope of recovering your mobile phone, it is better to consider doing a radical deletion of all the stored information so that the thief does not access your private data.
Good to know : Soon, Apple users will be able to know the real location of the iPhone even if the GPS is turned off or disabled. Indeed, the Apple firm recently announced that the new “Find My” application will arrive with the iOS 13 operating system.
It will be a merger between the “Find my iPhone” and “Find my Friends” applications, which will allow you to know the location of the device even when disconnected. How will this service work? The lost iPhone will send a signal to other nearby iOS devices via Bluetooth signal and reveal its exact location.
