Is it true that you can locate each other as long as you know their mobile phone number?

  Individuals can’t get the location of the other party without other professional equipment or software, even if they have a mobile phone number. Generally, only the police or professionals can obtain the general geographical location of the mobile phone through the triangulation of the mobile phone after obtaining the background data of the operator. The following is a detailed introduction:

       1. Individuals cannot obtain and locate the location of the other party without the help of other professional equipment or software;

  2. But theoretically, if the police or professionals know the other party’s number, they can get the other party’s position through the positioning of the mobile phone base station, but they need to get the background data of the operator, which ordinary consumers can’t get; The principle is that the mobile phone needs to ensure the signal strength, so the mobile phone will be under the signal coverage of multiple base stations in the city. Similar to the principle of radar, the mobile phone can get the signal TOA (time of arrival) or TDOA (time difference of arrival) of the base station after receiving the signal. According to this measurement result, combined with the coordinates of the base station, the coordinate value of the mobile phone can be calculated, and the approximate position can be finally obtained by triangulation.

  3. To get the location of the other party, you can ask the other party to open the real-time location sharing function of WeChat or map software and share the current location with you through the GPS information of the other party;
