5 Guaranteed Methods for Using GPS to Find a Cheater’s Location

By using this guide, you can find out definitively where your cheating partner is (find cheaters location) by exploiting some of the most widely used messaging apps in the world like WhatsApp and Facebook. You will also learn how tracking software can do this as well. This guide will work for either iPhones or Android devices.

Using GPS to Find a Cheater Location

Hi, Frankie Caruso here and this is my blog. Today, I want to share some of the effective methods for finding your partner using their mobile phone’s geolocation function.

I can only imagine how you must be feeling right now…

One side of the argument – you want to know where your partner is and catch them red-handed doing something they shouldn’t be. On the other, if you are right, you have to find out a very painful truth today.

Want to know what I think?

It is much better to discover a painful truth than to keep living a life where you are the victim of deception and lies.

I won’t waste any more time and we can get right to how you can catch a cheater red-handed and find out who the other person is in this sordid triangle.

This guide has been split into two portions:

  1. I show you effective methods for catching a cheater, including mSpy – the foremost spying software and GPS tracker in the world.
  2. Illustrate ninja techniques to geo-localize a mobile phone at no cost through software like WhatsApp, Facebook, iPhone Find My Friends, and Google Maps.

No matter what methods you choose, either software or ninja techniques, you do not need to be tech savvy to implement these strategies.

If you follow this guide, everything should be straightforward in simple steps. You will only need about three minutes and your own mobile phone.

Without further ado, let’s figure this out.


Frankie’s Take:

Checking a phone with GPS is not only a useful feature for finding out if your husband or wife is lying and cheating on you, but you might have even more legitimate reasons for using it. Parents who want to keep track of their children’s whereabouts and who fear their kids might end up in dangerous situations (you can also read How To Monitor Your Child’s Phone on Android and iPhone), or you want to find your stolen phone by tracking the movements of the thief.

Find a Cheater’s Location with Spy Software

Find a Cheater Location with Spy Software

  • Efficacy: 100%
  • Ease of Use: Easy
  • Devices: iPhone and Android

I won’t hesitate to begin this article with the method I feel is one of the best for catching a cheater and determining their location in real time.

The most widely used spying app in the world is mSpy (I consider it the best GPS tracking for cheaters), and you know how I feel about the software because I have mentioned it multiple times in blog posts. It is one of the best options and available apps in my opinion.

Frankie, how does it work? What could it do?

Let me walk you through its features.

This is a versatile app that can not only divulge GPS locations, but also any conversations that have happened through WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. In addition, the software can read emails, text messages, conversations from iMessage, and much more.

This available equipment runs on both primary mobile platforms. One of the greatest advantages is that you can install mSpy to an iPhone remotely without needing to access the target phone at all. You only need to know iCloud credentials. If you have an Android, however, there is no getting around holding the victim’s phone in your hands to install the software.

To date, there is NO spying software that can get installed remotely to any Android device.

Once connected to the victim’s mobile phone, mSpy can divulge valuable information that you need, including the current locations, messages sent/received, emails, phone calls made, and photos/videos on the device.

Accessing this information is simple, as you have a secret dashboard you access via a password on the mSpy website. Now you aren’t leaving any traces on your own smartphone, and avoid giving away your diabolical plan to catch the person who is cheating on you.

Frankie, won’t they realize something new is installed on their phone?

No, the victim won’t know anything here. In fact, mSpy does not leave any breadcrumbs of its presence, so you can use it without a fear of getting caught.

This sounds incredible! I want it right now – how do I do that?

Installing mSpy is very easy and requires no technical knowledge. I don’t want to walk you through the process step-by-step here, but I do have a thorough guide on how to install mSpy on your target’s phone in under three minutes. There, you can find a discount code for the software exclusively created for readers of this blog.

That might be all the information you need.

Again, this is the best tool for tracking a cheater’s location, but if you do not want to spend any money, there are some free methods. They are not as thorough, but can give you a more or less effective solution for tracking your partner throughout their day.

If you want to become a true ninja of these spying techniques, and turn your smartphone into a truth-thirsty hound, just keep reading onto the next portion of the guide.


Frankie’s Take:

There are other spyware options out there to rival mSpy, such as Flexispy, Spyze, and Couple Tracker App. All of them cost some money, but mSpy is the best GPS tracking for cheaters in terms of value. Unlike these others, there is a dedicated team that can install the software for you for a small fee.

Ninja Techniques to Track a Phone by GPS For Free

I can show you free and fat methods to geolocalize smartphones using apps like Find My Friends, Google Maps Timeline, and Facebook. You can also use several messaging apps to achieve this, such as WhatsApp and Telegram, when you both have these apps installed on your respective phones.

I have listed your options with their reliability, starting with the most reliable.

Let’s start then with the juggernaut app Facebook.

Locate a Cellphone Using Facebook

Locate a Cellphone Using Facebook

  • Effectiveness: 75%
  • Ease of Use: Very Easy
  • Devices : iPhone and Android Phones

You can utilize Facebook to help you spy on a cheating partner for free.

Nobody seems to know this, but Facebook has a feature that allows you to find out where certain people are at any given time.

Wait, Frankie, are you serious?

You bet I am. I am not kidding – I can show you how to do it right now. Fire, activate the feature on your victim’s account. You will need their phone handle for a few moments. If you memorize these steps, it should take you less than 15 seconds to complete this process.

Before I lay out the steps, you should check out this video devoted to effective methods of using your partner’s mobile phone without them becoming suspicious.

I’m certain you will find those useful. Back to this business, however. There is a procedure to activate the Nearby Friends function through Facebook.

  1. Open the app from your Android or iPhone device
  2. Tap the () button located in the top left on the screen (Android) or the bottom right (iPhone).
  3. Click on Nearby Friends > Get Started > Share location with: Friends > Next
  4. Exit the app

If you prefer to see it, you can take a look at the video below to see the steps to follow.

Facebook often changes interfaces, so I work to keep my guide up to date. I could miss things. So, understand that these steps might vary somewhat.

Congratulations! You’ve enabled this feature!

I would recommend doing it yourself on your own mobile phone a few times so you completely familiarize yourself with the process. Now it will take even less time to complete.

This feature enabled on both devices allows you to see where your partner is and then decide if you want to catch them red-handed.


Frankie’s Take:

This is a technique that works – it is the best option among the free ones. You leave no trace on the victim’s phone and it is easy to use as long as you can access their device for a few short seconds.

Find Cheaters with Find My Friends App on iPhone

Find Cheaters with Find My Friends App on iPhone

  • Efficacy: 70%
  • Ease of Use: Very Easy
  • Devices: iPhone

While Find My Friends is not a messaging app, if you and your partner both have iPhones, this technique can be perfect for you.

Find My Friends is a stock app on iPhones allowing you to share your real-time location with contacts in your address book.

Much like the Facebook approach, you need to set this feature up on a victim’s iPhone. It only takes a few seconds, and no one will be able to tell anything is different.

First, try and get your partner to allow you to use their phone. If it gets jealously guarded and they are not giving it to you, watch the video in the previous chapter for asking for their device without drawing suspicions.

Follow these steps:

  1. Open Find My Friends app (Find My) and click Allow to permit the app to use your GPS.
  2. Click on Me
  3. Choose Share My Location
  4. Exit the app

With just a few seconds of work, you have activated the Find My Friends feature on your partner’s iPhone.

Remember these steps in your mind so you do not waste much time that might make your spouse or partner suspicious.

To see where your partner is at any given time, you can simply log in from your iPhone on Find My Friends, click on People (bottom left) and search the map for their locations.

And just like that – they have been caught red-handed.


Frankie’s Take:

This is a very simple technique that requires no IT skills to complete. The downside is getting access to your partner’s device long enough to install it. If you cannot access the phone, I would suggest you take a look at my guide on how to spy on an iPhone remotely.

Find a Cheater Using Google Maps

Find a Cheater Location Using Google Maps

  • Efficacy: 65%
  • Ease of Use: Medium
  • Devices: iPhone and Android

Another application that you can use to discover the whereabouts of your cheating partner is Google Maps.

Few people realize that you can share your location through the app to another contact.

Allow me to explain.

You can setup Google Maps to always share your location with a specific contact. You can exploit the tool to your favor. The steps to follow are identical on both iPhone and Android options:

  1. Get your partner’s phone and open Google Maps
  2. Click the icon in the top right corner.
  3. From the new menu, choose Location Sharing and then Get Started
  4. Select Until you turn this off
  5. Click to Select People and insert your email address
  6. Exit the app

Congratulations! Now you can always know where your partner is.

Checking your partner’s whereabouts is simple. Access Google Maps from any device and you can see a pin on the map with your spouse’s photo on the map.


Frankie’s Take:

Just like other techniques, you need to access your partner’s phone. If the victim of your dirty game logs onto Google Maps, it is possible that they might notice they are sharing their location, so be mindful of when and how you use this feature.

Find a Cheater’s Location with Messaging Apps (WhatsApp, Telegram, Etc.)

  • Efficacy: 25% (LOW)
  • Ease of Use: Very simple
  • Devices: iPhone and Android

Frankie, can someone really track movement using WhatsApp?

The answer is both yes and no.

Allow me to explain – yes, you can determine precisely where someone is at a given moment. And no because in order to locate someone you need that contact to share their location with you.

Not really a spying technique if you ask me.

What you can do is ask your partner, using some tricks, where they are at a specific moment. If they are betraying you, they will very likely not just give up where they actually are, but hey it’s worth a try.

To accomplish this is easy, just follow some simple steps:

  1. Press the (+) key on the paper clip icon (Android)
  2. Click Location
  3. Choose between Real-Time Location or Send Current Location

What is the difference? Current position is limited where a contact is at the precise moment while real-time follows the contact throughout the day wherever they go.

The real-time location has a time limit of 15 minutes, 1 hour, or 8 hours.


Frankie’s Take:

Using WhatsApp to know where your partner is, or if they are with their lover, is not a technique I would recommend. You partner is also capable of sending a fake location in this way or creating a fake alibi to cover their story.

Frankie, what about Telegram?

A similar feature to what you have on WhatsApp can be found on Telegram.

Again, the person you are trying to spy on has to share their location with you. You need to be good at finding an excuse to get them to send you their location. It is unlikely that if they are having an affair, they are going to send you coordinates where the tryst is taking place, however.


It is now the end of the guide. I hope that the information I was able to provide has been useful, as so many others have found it helpful in the past.

Before I officially bid you farewell in this guide, I want to go over the content of this article one more time. I told you about some techniques for tracking the location of another cellphone. I don’t want you to have missed something that can help.

In the first portion of this guide, I talked about mSpy. This tracking and spy software is (in my opinion) the most reliable method of tracking a cheater. With mSpy you also get to read messages and spy on conversations over social media. You can not only discover where the cheating is happening, but who he is cheating with!

The second part of the guide introduced you to several ninja techniques used to geolocalize smartphones for free. Two of these techniques are related to Find My Friends and Google Maps, another uses Facebook, and the final two rely on features in WhatsApp or Telegram messaging applications.

I hope now that this is clear and concise for you. If you have doubts or questions, do not hesitate to write in the comments. I can get back with you quickly.

Come back and check in to saee if there are new methods and techniques as I discover them.

A big hug
