Installing from download
Enable install from alternative source

Go to the Security-->Device Administration-->Unknown Sources options under your phone's Settings and enable the option which allows you to install from sources other than Google Play Store. Remember to disable it again after the installation. Once the app is tested and ready, it will only be available from the Google Play Store.

Provide the necessary permissions

The app will be using a few system resources in order to do its job, but some of these require that the user give explicit permission.

The installer on your phone will list the permissions the application requires. These are:

  • Location Services for GPS functionality
  • Network Status so that it can send the data over the network
  • Phone Status to verify the IMEI

Our software is non-intrusive and does not spy on you or your phone. It doesn't send any secret information to us or anyone else, or run any invisible background processes. We endorse and apply ethical standards and operate in a spirit of good faith.

Running the app
Dial *#06# to get your IMEI

Dial from your phone keypad. Your device will display its IMEI. Write this long number down but ignore any slashes and all characters following it.

Log in and add a new device

Log in to your account and follow the procedure to add a new GPS tracker. Supply the IMEI you wrote down.

Running the app

After the initial setup, the app will run once started manually and will only be shut down if the phone runs extremely low on resources, if the phone shuts down or if the user forcibly exits the app. To run the app, just tap on its icon and exit the app when it opens.
