My son now has an Android smartphone, and I'd like to be able to track where it is, firstly because it helps me know where my son is, and secondly if the phone is lost/misplaced/stolen it is easier to recover. Requirements:
1. Locate Android phone using a web site
2. Locate Android phone using an iPhone app
3. I should not need his Android account details to locate his phone.

Any suggestions much appreciated

Regards, Mike.

I have a Samsung Android phone which has a built-in find my phone Samsung app. If you go into the Play Store there are many free Kid tracker apps. Don't know if they are cross platform, I'm guessing you are on iOS so maybe have look and see which tracker apps are on both iOS and Android.

My point is kids sometimes have a second phone (iPhone even!) of which parents are not aware. More likely to happen in high school.
