The proliferation of cellular network enabled users through various positioning tools to track locations; location information is being continuously captured from mobile phones, where a prototype is created that enables to detect locations based on using the two invariant models for Global Systems for Mobile (GSM) and Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS). The smartphone application on an Android platform applies the location-sensing run as a background process, and the localization method is based on cell phones. The proposed application is associated with remote server and used to track a smartphone without permissions and Internet. Mobile stores data location information in the database (SQLite) and then transfers it into location API to obtain locations’ result implemented in Google Maps. Track a smartphone with fixed identifiers mostly SSN (SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) Serial Number) and IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) derived from an identifying string unique to the user’s device. The location result is moderately correct according to the cellular networks GSM and UMTS, which are used for obtaining location information.
