Most people don’t even know that they are constantly being tracked and that all their locations are being recorded in Google servers. Every place you visit is being tracked using Wi-Fi, mobile networks and GPS. This option is enabled by default and usually makes the user experience better and more convenient.

There are many applications and services that depend on your location, such as “Google Now” or showing your location in Tweets and Facebook posts, etc. so your movement is constantly tracked.

The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number is a unique number given to every phone, and it is used for identifying a phone. Most people don’t know what the IMEI number is, as there is usually no need to use it.

However, this number is actually important, especially when your phone is lost or stolen. This number is required to identify your phone, so it could be blocked from networks (but that’s rarely the case). You may also be required to provide your IMEI number if you want to sell your phone, if the buyer wants to check if it was stolen.

Although the IMEI number is not located right in front of you, finding it is not a difficult job and there are many different methods to find it. Even if you have lost your phone, you can still find your IMEI number through different methods and report that it is lost. Read full post →How To Find Your IMEI Number (iOS + Android)
