How to Track Your Employee’s Cell Phone?

In the United States, employers can track employees’ cell phones using each cell phone’s Global Positioning System (GPS). You’ll need to find a tracking app to install on a company-owned phone. If you want to track your employees’ phones, you need their permission. You should also consider whether you want to listen to employee conversations or read their emails.


  • Explore applications in the marketplace. Search the web by typing “cell phone tracker apps” or similar and see the results. There seem to be many companies that offer tracking services. Companies include mSpy, TheOneSpy, FlexiSPY and TeleNav Track.
    Also consider whether you want to record or listen to employee conversations or listen to their text messages. If so, find an app that lets you keep track of everything.
  • Ask other entrepreneurs what they use. You may not know where to put the asterisk. Ask other business owners if they use tracking software. Get their feedback on product and customer service. You can explore this product later.
    Also ask business owners if they find employee tracking increases productivity. You risk losing potential employees you don’t want to be tracked. [1] You must know this information before installing a tracking app on your employee’s phone.
  • Compare apps. Once you find multiple app providers, compare them to find exactly what you need at the right price. Imagine the following situation:
    How many phones can the app be installed on?
    Can you transfer apps from one device to another without paying for a new license?
  • Give your employee a call. As a general rule, you have no control over your employees’ personal phone calls, so you must give them a corporate phone number. Install the app before handing out phones to employees.
    Alternatively, you can ask your employees to download the app on their personal phones and sign an agreement giving you access to tracking information. The agreement may be in an employment contract or a handbook or handbook.
    However, the law is somewhat vague about when employees’ personal devices can be accessed. The law is clearer when the device belongs to you, so it may be easier to give your employees a phone.

You can usually track the location of your phone by logging into a web browser page. You should be able to access this information from work or home. Typically, you can track each employee and generate reports.

  1. Research general laws. In the United States, federal law restricts electronic communications. However, the law exempts employers from monitoring employees’ use of their systems if there is a legitimate business need.

    Ask employees for permission. It can be checked even with the consent of the employee, but business exceptions do not exist. This permission is to tell employees that you want to track the phone. As long as the employee continues to work for you, he or she has given permission. Even with business exceptions, it’s best to get a license.
    You must include your requirements for supervision in the employee contract and include a leaflet that allows the employee to keep.

  2. Set up a privacy policy. To protect your employees, you need to decide who has access to tracked information. If you are a small business and the sole manager, you may not need a policy. But large companies need to determine who can access the information and under what circumstances.
    Make it clear that you will not view information outside of business hours. You can violate your employees’ privacy, for example, by tracking their after-hours visits to the hospital.
