Frequently Asked Questions
What is Scannero?
Scannero is an easy-to-use app that lets you track location by phone number. Just type in any mobile phone number, and Scannero sends out a text. When they tap the link in your text, Scannero sends you their current location. View it on a map and see exactly where they are.
Is it really possible to type in someone’s phone number and find their location?
Yes, it really is possible. We designed our cell phone number tracker to be so easy to use that anyone can use it, even with minimal tech knowledge. Just pay for the service, punch in the number of the phone you want to locate, and Scannero gets to work. After the person you’re trying to track taps the link in your message, you’ll receive their exact whereabouts.
Do I need to install an app on their phone to track them?
No. Scannero’s check number location service works without the need to install an app. Seriously, there’s nothing to install on their phone and nothing to install on yours. It’s so powerful, you don’t even need your own phone to use it. As long as you have access to a web browser, you’re good to go.
How long does it take to find out their location?
After sending your message, give Scannero about two minutes to find location by phone number. That’s how long it takes for the message to be received on their end. As soon as they tap the link, Scannero will send you their location. Keep in mind, however, that if they take longer than expected to tap the link in your message, you’ll have to wait to receive their location.
How to track a phone number without physical access?
With Scannero.io, it’s easy to find the location of someone else’s cell phone without requiring physical access to it. Go to Scannero.io homepage and enter the number of the phone you want to locate, Scannero.io will make a tracking request via SMS message and you will receive a location.
Is your payment declined? Here's what you can do.
Make sure your credit card details were entered correctly and that you have enough funds in your bank account. Also, please contact your bank to allow the international transactions.
Will they know that I’m tracking them?
When you track a cell phone location by number, we’ll send them a text message with a link to tap. The content of the message you send is up to you, so whether you include your name or not is your call. If you choose a vague message, they might not know that you’re attempting to find out their location. It’s always a good idea to be clear in your message.
Can I track someone for free?
We wish we could offer the Scannero mobile number tracker for free, but because we employ some pretty advanced technology, we need to charge for it. The good news? We’ve priced Scannero quite competitively. It costs less than $1 to track a phone number once. Or you can opt for a monthly subscription instead.
What happens if they switch SIM cards?
As long as you know their phone number, Scannero will tell you their phone number location. That means if they switch mobile phone providers but keep their number, Scannero will work. If they switch SIM cards and phone numbers, you’ll need to know their new number to use Scannero.
Is it legal to use to track a phone by number without them knowing?
You can’t install software on someone’s device without them knowing, but Scannero is different. It requires that the person you’re trying to track provide consent. Remember, with Scannero, the person on the other end must tap a link to provide their location. It’s not automatic, so it’s different than tracking apps you might have read about.
Do I need to install Scannero.io on my phone to track it?
No, you don’t need to install anything on your phone. Also, you don’t need physical access to target device. As long as you know their phone number, you’re good to go.
Stolen or lost phone? What can you do with Scannero.io?
Scannero.io is compatible with all networks and phones, you can try locating even a stolen or lost device. However, the phone should be turned ON and the SIM card should be active. Note that Scannero.io doesn’t guarantee to locate lost or stolen devices but can give you a way to finding the phone.
Is it legal to use Scannero.io?
It’s natural if you have concerns about tracking another person’s phone. However, geolocating someone’s device is fully legal and conforms to the recommendations of the Information Commissioner’s Office. Besides, you can receive the third party’s location only if they give consent for being located.
Does Scannero work on all networks?
Yes. We don’t even need to know what mobile network they use. Just enter their phone tracker to find out their location. In no time, you’ll feel like you’ve known how to track a phone number forever. And if they ever switch to another network, Scannero will work just as well.
Do I need to know their make and model of phone?
Whether they have iPhone, Android, or an old-school Blackberry, Scannero works. It even works if they’re using an older device without data. Remember, for Scannero to work, the person on the other end only needs to be able to receive text messages. No data is required.
Will Scannero help me find a lost or stolen device?
It certainly can. If you’ve lost your device or someone stole it, you can use Scannero to send your phone a text. As soon as someone taps the link in the text message, you’ll know their location by phone number. And because you can create a custom text message, you can tailor your message to encourage them to tap the link.
