How to Track a Missing Phone number in Nigeria
Phone Number lookup in Nigeria
Tracking a missing or stolen phone in Nigeria is rarely practiced because many phone users don’t know how to locate their missing phones.
Several mobile phone users believe only security operatives and telecom operators can track a missing phone, but in this article, we will be giving a guide on how Nigerians can track their missing phones.
This guide to tracking a missing phone would effectively work on smartphones, first generational phones don’t have enough technology for easy tracking.
GPS TRACKING USING GOOGLE
This is the easiest and most precise way to track a phone in Nigeria but the only setback is that you cannot track the phone if you haven’t earlier signed in your Google account to the smartphone before it was stolen.
If you are still reading then you must have signed in your Google account in the device.
Using a computer or another smartphone, sign into the Google account linked to the missing Smartphone.
Now go to Google map and check on “My Timeline”, this would give you precise details of everywhere the device has been to, you can check as back as 2 years (depends on how long the account has been signed into the missing device).
This would also show you the last location of the phone, making it easier for you to pinpoint the location of the device.
Alternatively, you can use the “Google Find My Device” feature, this would send several signals to the missing phone and it will send back its live location in real-time to your device.
You can also use this feature to ping your device, so if the device is switched on it will ring out very loud and making it easy to locate if it is close by (the device must be switched on for this to work).
