Tracking an Android device from an iPhone might seem like a daunting task, but with the right tools and techniques, it can be a straightforward process. Whether you want to keep an eye on your child’s phone or track a lost device, this tutorial will guide you through the steps needed to track an Android device from your iPhone.

Step 1: Install a Tracking App

To track an Android device from your iPhone, you’ll need to install a tracking app on the Android device. There are several options available in the Play Store, but one popular choice is “Find My Device” by Google. Follow these steps to install the app:

  • Open the Play Store on your Android device
  • Search for “Find My Device” and tap on the first result
  • Tap on “Install” and wait for the app to download and install

Step 2: Setup Find My Device

Once you have installed Find My Device on the Android device, follow these steps to set it up:

  • Open Find My Device from the app drawer or home screen
  • Sign in with your Google account
  • Grant all necessary permissions for location tracking and remote locking/wiping of the device
  • Make sure that location services are enabled on your Android device by going to Settings > Location > On

Step 3: Track Your Android Device from iPhone

Now that you have set up Find My Device on your Android device, you can easily track it from your iPhone using any web browser. Follow these steps:

  • Open Safari or any other web browser on your iPhone
  • Go to the Find My Device website:
  • Sign in with the same Google account you used to set up Find My Device on the Android device
  • You will now see a map with the location of your Android device

Additional Features:

Find My Device offers additional features that can help you track and secure your Android device:


If you have misplaced your Android device nearby, you can use the “Ring” feature to make it ring at full volume for five minutes, even if it’s in silent mode.


If your Android device gets stolen or lost, you can remotely lock it using the “Lock” feature. This prevents unauthorized access to your personal data.


In extreme cases where you cannot recover your lost or stolen Android device, you can use the “Erase” feature to wipe all data on the device remotely. This ensures that your sensitive information doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.

With these steps and features, tracking an Android device from an iPhone becomes a simple task. Remember to always use tracking apps responsibly and respect privacy boundaries.
