How To Use An Old Android Phone As A Tracking Device – SlashGear

To turn your old Android phone into a tracking device, you need to install a phone tracking app. One of your main options is Google’s very own Find My Device. It’s pre-installed on most Android devices but you can also find it on the Play Store. Alternatively, you might want to try some of the third-party apps on Google Play Store.

If you choose to go with Find My Device, here’s what you need to do to set it up (via Google Support):

  1. Sign in to your Google account on your phone if you haven’t already.
  2. Turn on Location and Wi-Fi or mobile data.
  3. Enable Find My Device from Settings > Security.
  4. Enable “Store recent location” from Settings > Security > Find My Device.
  5. Go to Google Play Library and verify that your device has a checkmark in the “Show in Menus” column.
  6. Sign in to your Find My Device app.

On the other hand, if you need more functionality than what Find My Device offers, you can opt to try third-party apps. Here are two of the options you can easily download and set up:

  • Life360: Apart from providing real-time location, the app also features Crash Detection to alert you if anyone in your circle got into a road accident.
  • GeoZilla: This comes with a Significant Location Change (SLC) feature that helps save your phone’s battery as it only activates the family tracker once the phone has traveled a significant distance.
