Part 1: How to Track an Android Device from an iPhone/Android?

When I wanted to track my Android phone, I took the assistance of FamiSafe, which is a 100% reliable device tracking and monitoring solution. Not just your device, you can also use it to track anyone else’s phone (like your friends or family). The application is extremely easy to set up and would let you monitor all kinds of activities on the target device remotely.

It will let you track the real-time location of their Android device so that you can remotely find it whenever you want. There is also a provision to check the past location history of the device or set up geofences (restricted zones) to get instant alerts.

App Usage and Screen Time

You can remotely check the overall screen time on the device for various apps. Parents can also block the access of any installed app on the target device whenever they want.

FamiSafe offers tons of other features such as daily activity monitoring, website blocking, browser history check, social media alerts, and so much more.

Part 2: Track an Android Phone from iPhone/Android with Google Maps?

Google Maps certainly needs no introduction as it is already used by over a billion people worldwide. Ideally, the application is used to navigate to different places and find suitable routes.

Though, Google Maps also has a social feature that lets us share our present location with our contacts. Therefore, you can simply share your location with anyone via Google Maps and use it as an ideal Find my iPhone Android alternative.

  • You can simply go to the Location Sharing feature on Google Maps and start sharing your live location with any contact from your list.
  • The other user can just go to their Google Maps app (on iPhone or Android) to check the shared location.
  • Google Maps also let us select a particular duration for which we want to share our location with the other person.
  • Since Google Maps runs on both Android and iOS, the application provides a free cross-platform sharing of live locations between multiple phones.
  • Overall, Google Maps is pretty accurate, but the option will only work if the GPS feature is enabled on the device. Also, we can choose to disable the location sharing option on Google Maps whenever we want.
