Cellphone tracking

20 posts in this topic

Wasabi fellow SS Forum abuser,

Here is the thing , I need to be able to track someones every move via his cellphone , coz basically he is a total retard and I need to check up on him every freaking minute , otherwise he does absolutely squat.

Anyone aware of where I would be able to get something of this nature?

:boxed::boxing:

The only one I know of is Vodacom Look for me, but you need the other persons permission

Doesn't matter which network , I'll change it to what ever is required.

Yeah I've heard of Vodacom Look for me Syndicate. I should probably go read up some more on that.

No permission is required since it's a company cell.......... we will obviously tell him it will be tracked ;)

Maybe install a little app like they use on car trackers?

It can upload the location via GPRS every x amount of seconds.

Kewl thx guys.

I've just done some reading up on Look4Me and it sounds like the perfect solution.

Would however still like to know if anyone knows of a different service.......... maybe if CellC or MTN offers something similar ?

PS.... for interest sake , Look4Me does offer a mapped location

Location requests:

* Via USSD: 20 cents per 20 seconds

* Via SMS: R1.69 per SMS

* Via MMS: R2.99 per MMS (incl map)

If there is anyone other there that is currently using Look4Me or who has used it before , would you mind please answer the following :

If I track someone , will that person be informed that I looked up their current location?

Surely there must be something that uses the tower name? Fine, that only displays an area but it's still better than nothing.

I'm concerned about the legality of tracking someone's location...

It sounds too much like invasion of privacy to me, taking a step too close to spying.

Sounds like he's tracking an employee, which should be totally legal if it's during working hours. You cannot a cellphone without its owner's permission.

It's the same as tracking a car for business purposes ect ect.

Almost like fleet management / monitoring.

The only thing that has changed is the object being tracked :p

I suppose in that case it's perfectly alright then. I'm just a strong supporter of privacy at home and in the workplace. People shouldn't be spied on and restricted like what we see in futuristic movies. And unfortunately it's nearly upon us. Where our right to free choice is rescinded.

But back on topic.

Why exactly do you need to track this person's location? Is he a delivery-guy or something like that?

You hit the nail right on the head Whipme , he is indeed a delivery guy.

I get too many complains about him always being late and not doing his job. So I need to be able to track him.

Then why not put a tracker on his car?

That way you can track his route. Might be esier than the cell.

This way you can also get a reduction in car insurance.

Installation is quick and can be done without the driver knowing it.

Get his location, and phone him to ask where he is.

This way you will soon know if he is just a slow driver, or bullsh.....g you.

Cheers
