Depends on the phone he has. It would be under location services or GPS, etc. settings.

Hi Khalid,

On an Android device, you can activate Android Device Manager which can help locate a missing device, or help you keep an eye on your sons whereabouts in this case.

To set this up you need to do the following:

Go into the apps drawer (looks like a bunch of dots on the bottom of the home screen and this has to be on his device not yours) - Select the app Google Settings - then click on Android Device Manager, it will prompt you a few times explaining what it is and what you can use it for - Click on Remotely Locate this device in the little box beside it (if it isn't already checked). Now this is set up, keep in mind, that you will need to have access to the Gmail account that is on the device in order to access it from a computer.

Hope that helps
