How To Identify The Owner Of A Phone Number In Nigeria
Two things you would need to track someone location with a phone number are:
- A working smartphone (with a good internet connection) and

Way 2 Sms
Way2Sms is another website designed for tracking phone numbers – it really works!

Call your network Provider
This method of tracking a phone number is not all that common but it can also be effective.
For security and safety purposes, network providers such as Airtel, MTN, GLO, 9Mobile etc may only be able to tell you the state, and city the caller is a caller from but you can explain your reasons of needing this information and if they buy it, they’ll be willing to share more information with you.
Trap call, like truecaller is an app that helps uncover the identity of an unknown phone number.
How does Trapcall work?
- Open Playstore or App store
- Download Trapcall app on your mobile phone
- Once downloaded and active and an unknown number calls you, decline the call by pressing the red button on your phone.
- Once that happens, the number gets forward to Trapcall
- After a couple of seconds, Trapcall then sends the caller information right back to you.
For more information such as the full name and address of the caller, you will need to pay for a Premium or Ultimate plan.
Use search engine
Type the person’s phone number into search engines such as Bing, and Google and you might be surprised at what comes up.
If the mobile phone number you are searching for has been cached somewhere on the web – the search engine will show you the identity of the owner.
Use social media
Every day, more and more people keep turning to the use of social media such as Twitter, and Facebook to track kidnappers, and harassers.
A lot of people on these social media apps share their phone numbers publicly. To trace a person, simply type the person’s name into the site’s search function and see what pops back.
For example, Facebook and Twitter are excellent means of tracking people down. Simply go to the person’s profile, check basic info, check contact information. Note that you can only see a number that the owner makes visible. If it is marked as private, you will not be able to see it.
