Off-phone Tracker

EasyChair Preprint no. 4196

4 pagesDate: September 15, 2020


In this age of technology, one of the worst things to happen to an individual is to lose one's cellphone which contains all important data. It is found that one in every 10 smartphone users are a victim of phone theft with recovery rate being less than 10%. The aim of this study is to increase that recovery rate with the help of existing wireless technology. Current locating systems use GPS and IMEI but that becomes ineffective when the device is turned off. This paper discusses our concept of tracking a phone indirectly through existing wireless technology which requires certain tweaks to give the current system a security buff.
