Track Any Mobile is a web application coded in PHP facilitating tracking of mobile phones using the MSC SS7 technique as presented at the 25th CCC conference by Tobias Engel. It does not interact with the mobile networks directly but rather uses one of the commercially available APIs provided for obtaining the MSC.

As is inherent with use of this technique only an approximate position (generally accurate to within a few miles, less in more populated areas) is available.

For each mobile phone being tracked a report is provided detailing the phones movement between pre saved localities (a locality is a geographic area generally covering a few miles). Localities must be saved prior to commencing tracking. To save a locality ensure the phone is currently in that locality and enter the phone number, locality name (your reference for that geographic area), and choose save.

Localities are shared between all phones tracked in a user account that are on the same network. This means that if you save a locality for a phone using e.g. T-Mobile, any phone that enters that locality which is also on the T-Mobile network will be reported as being in that locality name.
