Remote activate GPS on cell phones


Registered Member
I see the site has changed, but I am hoping I still have the same awesome community I found here a few years ago. So, here is what I need help with. A while back, someone stole my phone. It was a droid, so I used the standard 'locate my device' services, but whoever too it either put the phone in airplane mode or turned the GPS off. I now have a new device, a Rooted OnePlus One, and I was wondering if there is any way I can either lock the GPS in on position and disable the phone from being placed in Airplane mode, or if there is an app, regular google play or through the root, that I could use to remotely activate these services. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I am not wanting to have to replace another expensive phone.

Depending on which applications you choose to use, you may not be able to control GPS remotely. Many times you can also on Location and track GPS Remote location.
