“My son has been acting up lately. He never talks to us, he’s always late from school, and his grades are dropping. We want to find out what’s wrong with him but he won’t let us know! I need to know how to track my son’s iPhone without him knowing. If he’s doing something wrong, I need to find out.”
We got the above-mentioned message from a concerned parent recently. It wasn’t even the first time we’ve received such a message. There was a time when parents sent their kids to school and had no way of knowing what they were doing when they were out of sight.
But now every kid has an iPhone, and with that comes the opportunity for parents to keep track of them.
When you’re using an iPhone tracker app, you should be extremely careful. If your son finds out he’s being tracked, he will lose complete faith and trust in you. As such, use iPhone track apps discreetly.
There are a lot of great tracker apps. However, some of them require you to jailbreak the target iPhone. This is a complicated process and it leaves the phone vulnerable to malware, which is something you clearly don’t want.
As such, in this article, we’ll show you a jailbreak-free way to track your son’s iPhone location without him knowing.
