Leading mobile phone tracking service provider Trace A Mobile ( has been quick to respond to worried callers to their mobile phone tracker helpline after they received a flood of callers fearing they too may have been victims of the recent mobile phone hacking scandal or are concerned about illicit mobile phone tracking which has been referred to in the press as mobile “pinging”.

"Our main message to confused callers has been the ability to track the position of a mobile phone is in no way similar to someone illegally hacking into your voicemail, as has happened with News Corporation," said Managing Director Jonathan Cook. "Our mobile phone tracking service is fully regulated and approved by all the leading mobile phone telecoms companies and relies on the triangulation of mobile phone signals between phone masts to enable mobile tracking to take place. Whereas mobile phone hacking is someone illegally accessing your voicemail, either by using the default phone pin code or by tricking the phone system to change a pin code without your knowledge or permission."

Any Trace A Mobile customer can receive the guide which describes in clear and easily understandable terms how mobile tracking works and whether tracking is right for them, plus how to protect their phones.

"We treat people's privacy very seriously, which is why before you are able to access our mobile phone tracking service we check customers details and make sure the person being tracked has given their permission first,” Cook adds. “To protect yourself from mobile phone hacking you must make sure you set up a pin code and guard the security of your pin as closely as you would on email or a website password. Anyone wanting to try our mobile phone tracking service and receive the free guide should consider our entry level tariff which costs just £24.99 for 15 searches and is pay as you go, with cheaper tariffs available for more regular tracking consumers."
