How to Track Your Partner without Them Knowing – Your Guide to Partner Tracking

I want to track my partner. You have certainly heard these words from a friend, but you may have never thought that you would make such a statement. Most people want to keep an eye on their partner because they feel that their trust may have been betrayed. There are also those who worry too much about their partner and they want to make sure that their loved one is fine without calling him/her every five minutes.

There are various solutions to your problem. You can use different methods for tracking.

Before you pick a method, however, you should weigh its pros and cons carefully. You would not want to ruin your relationship just because of making a silly move.

Find the most popular methods which you can use presented and assessed objectively below.

The Traditional Way of Covert Partner Tracking

Track your partner without them knowingHow do I track my partner? You can do it yourself. If you suspect that your partner may be cheating on you or that he/she has developed gambling addiction or anything else of this sort, you can readily spy on them. There are plenty of guides that will help you do this professionally without revealing yourself accidently. Use a DIY spying guide and follow the steps correctly. You just have to be prepared to face the consequences if you make an error.

Hire a private investigator: it’s a bit risky, but might be effective

Track your spouse

Hire a private investigator. This is no longer an option available just to the rich and famous. Anyone can hire a private eye to track their partner.

You just have to ask yourself whether this is worth it. Firstly, private investigators in the US charge from $200 per hour and up. You will have to pay for any additional expenses incurred during the investigation separately.

Another drawback of hiring an investigator is that things may get nasty if they catch your spouse cheating on you on film.

GPS Tracking of your Partner

This is the latest fashion in the world of amateur spying. The GPS technology can show the location of literally any object that has hardware and/or software for receiving a satellite radio signal. You can really set your fantasy free when it comes to GPS tracking and use various devices.

GPS car tracking (see our article on: Tracking your husband’s/wife’s location without touching his/her phone) is an option that all amateur spies can use. You can hide a tiny GPS tracking device inside the car of your partner and locate him/her from any computer that has an internet connection. If the car already has a GPS device installed, you can use special software for tracking.

This method is fairly safe and fairly inexpensive. It is bound to work well if your partner uses his/her car to go everywhere. However, if they use the public transport to travel to and from close locations in the city or if they want to hide conceal their activities by using taxi cab services, this tracking method will most certainly fail.

GPS cell phone tracking: smartphone apps

GPS phone tracking involves the installation of software on your spouse’s cell phone. Track my partner apps are for example readily available for iPhone devices and for ones using Android as well. You can install these apps secretly and your partner will never know that they are there.

Track my partner’s phone apps are readily available online, but you may not be able to find them at places such as Android Market simply because legal issues for the seller and developer may arise from their use. Furthermore, these apps tend to be quite expensive especially compared to ones for permitted GPS tracking. An even more serious problem is that no developer can guarantee that your partner will never discover the app. Consider this drawbacks carefully before making a choice.

GSM Tracking: Go for reciprocal tracking – what do they have to hide?

This method works by using the existing GSM network. You can readily use detailed explanation of how GSM tracking works, if you want the technical details. With this method, you can track any phone with a SIM card and not only smartphones. It does not involve the installation of any hardware or software. You can locate your partner by locating his/her phone anytime anywhere. The user does not have to make a phone call or send a text message in order to be located.

Legitimate GSM tracking services will require the permission of the phone’s user for their device to be located by you. Given this, the best way to go about is to enable GSM tracking for everyone in the family including yourself. Your spouse should not feel threatened or bothered by this as it is a standard measure for safety and for retrieving the device in case of loss or theft.

It is a bad idea to covertly take your spouse’s phone and give the permission on their behalf. This is because these GSM services usually have safeguards that send text messages to the cell phone being tracked reminding the the owner registered for the service.

How do I track my partner’s phone? You can go for traditional or risky GPS tracking. You can readily use a GSM tracking service that is inexpensive, honest, reciprocal and effective. The choice is yours.

  • My friend and her ex split up recently and he will not give her the phone she got him on her plan back, he told the police that he lost and and she cancelled the plan thru her provider but she still has to pay for the phone. All she want is the phone back and apple says there no way to track it because she didn’t install the find your phone app and she doesn’t know his apple I’d. Does anyone have any suggest on how to get her phone back, without me having to track him down and kick his fucking ass.

  • I had a cheating husband that would (of course) lie, lie, lie. “Prove it!” He said. Then it dawned on me, I had an iPad that had, as part of signing up with carrier, service for $10 month.
    So I hid it in his car. In the trunk under the spare tire. All I had to do then was pull up my “Find my Phone” APP that had all my devices registered, and what do you know?! I proved it! Just like he asked me to.

  • I think that I am being g tracked by my boyfriend. Also I think he is 100% been screwing another chic or having a full relationship with another but tells me he loves me everyday day. I am scared I love him a ton. But I am to old for this shit! I don’t need him watching my every move, anything I type or write down he reads. I want to be fully loved, wanted and respected. Shit I want an app that will help me find out if I need to give up on the whole Love game. I also need to find an app that will help me find out if I have been being tracked or “bugged”. Things are weird. Plus it’s not fair. I truly don’t deserve to be treated this way. Can someone help.

  • Here’s the issue COMMUNICATION. Couples need to not be selfish and start sign posting more meaning (explaining what your doing and why your doing it) and being completely honest about it not leaving out a single peice of detail. If someone avoids answering a question repeatedly I class that as chasing the dragon. The reason why people spy on their partners is because they want answers so they can clear their mind and have closure and focus on what’s really important in life.
    If both party’s do what I have mentioned above at least not matter the outcome you both will know where you stand. COMMUNICATION is the key, the more positive talks you have with each other the stronger the relationship the less you talk or spend time with each other then someone else will fill that gap.
    Hope this helps.

    • hey ya’ll,
      First of all, I just wanted to say hello to everyone sending posts about cheating spouses. Secondly, welcome to my world. My husband cheated on me throughout our whole lives together. Almost 14-15 years, and 6 kids later, I finally was so fed up with it, that I got the courage to leave.(Later, I found out that he told everyone that he only cheated on me, because I always cheated on him. Really? Even our own kids! Whatever. I did nothing wrong, but loved him with all my heart. And after 13 years of trying to move on, I finally found someone, whom I thought was worth all my love & trust. But after the last 5 years, I’m starting to think that I was wrong. I have tried giving him all of my trust, heart, & soul, as well as unconditional love. And all I get is suspicious looks, accusations of being suspicious, and jealous, and or accused of being not just jealous, accusatory, suspicious,. But told that I am seeing/imagining things or just plain crazy, jealous, and psychotic! Maybe I am. But before I commit myself to that belief, I want to be positive, that that’s exactly what is going on in my head.

    • Sorry to tell you but if hes cheated several times and with a stripper, you’re going to set your future ‘family’ up for failure. You think knowing where he is at all times will make him stop? Not at all. If you can’t trust that he won’t cheat then what’s the point he has no respect for you because he’s giving his dick and time to any girl with a vagina. You sound dumb as hell. Gain some confidence in yourself.

  • Instead of worrying about accessing your partner’s technology, have you thought of planting one of your own, that you can access without issue?
    For example, charge an old iPod with Find My iPhone on it, hide it in partner’s vehicle, then when you have need, check it’s whereabouts. Just don’t make it play a sound! Then you will see their car’s location.
    You will have to get into the car to hide it, and retrieve it every few days for battery recharging of course.
    Best of luck everyone.

  • Well…private eyes are too expensive…if this works I’ll be ecstatic, here’s the perfect reason for my search. (I wish I didn’t have to look for this type of product…and I say this with much hurt in my heart)

    “Times are hard
    You’re afraid to pay the fee
    So you find yourself somebody
    Who can do the job for free
    When you need a bit of lovin’
    Cause your man is out of town
    That’s the time you get me runnin’
    And you know I’ll be around
    I’m a fool to do your dirty work
    Oh yeah
    I don’t want to do your dirty work
    No more
    I’m a fool to do your dirty work
    Oh yeah
    Light the candle
    Put the lock upon the door
    You have sent the maid home early
    Like a thousand times before
    Like the castle in its corner
    In a medieval game
    I foresee terrible trouble
    And I stay here just the same
    I’m a fool to do your dirty work
    Oh yeah
    I don’t want to do your dirty work
    No more
    I’m a fool to do your dirty work
    Oh yeah”

  • After the birth of my son my wife had some mental issues.
    For no apparent reason she disappeared but I know where she is.
    Her family is now loving the fact they got rid of me and are pushing my 2 year old into the trading position so they can do whatever they want to me.
    I came home from work and they demolished my house and stole everything in it. I dont care cause I want to protect my son asap !
    But they tell me to shut up or else my son pays the price… Unbelievable but that is not enough for the police to act.
    Child Protection is really failling me even after the police adviced them in this situation my son is not safe with her.
    Other agencies also are letting me down, offering me help to cope but they dont get it’s not about me but my son.
    Even the police is really disappointed by the agencies but they cant do much about it.
    I do have permission by the police and law since Im the father to take him to a hidden location where they will come to visit and check on him.
    The one thing they can not do is take him away because only the biological father has that right in my country.
    I can not use force except for a push to get him so I would need to grab him when they are walking on the street.
    The fact it will be traumatic for my son is something I want to keep to a minimal level but I need to find the best place to have easy access.
    Asking permission to track where they are will be refused and will blow my setup completely.
    Even posting this is a risk. If anyone can help me to track her phone without having access to her phone and in stealth it would certainly save my boys life.
    I have little time left cause he is in danger every day from an aggresive family, and let’s hope he will not be hurt more than the few marks he already has,
    Once I’ve got him the police will come to the registered location where he will be safe.
    Of course I miss my wife, and it hurts me to see the things she so carelesly does, but I need to save my boy first and get him to safety !
    I’m asking for my 2 year old son and a desperate father… please Help !

    1. A tracker to find LOCATION of partner at all times WITHOUT HIM KNOWING?
    2. Without the possibilities of HIDDEN CHARGES to turn up on phone bill that is in HIS name
    3. Without having to use his phone to lad something
    4.. Without accidentally getting caught at tracking, which would make matters WORSE!!!???

    • Sorry for the late reply, Aldrich. If you’re only looking for an app to keep teach of your own phone, download Lookout Mobile Security app. Most of its functions are free, including phone locator and making your phone scream. The scream works even if the ringer is shut off. Personally, I think covert tracking of adult partners is rather stupid if the reasons are personal. If a relationship is at the point where trust has already been compromised, knowing where they are really isn’t going to help the relationship. And if nothing is going on, then the partner being tracked will rightly feel betrayed

She or He, the right one that makes you feel comfortable and calm and so loved is out there. Spend your time to find them. Let these lost cheaters go. I feel sad for them. Its you they will come to miss and to learn from.

        • It is best to know what is going on. Stop asking her this and that. Get a private eye and find out. If she is cheating… Go your separate ways and do not argue. Cheaters always want to play all the field.
