    Lightbulb worried

    is there anything I can do to track a cell where abouts in real time without having the other phone know or not downloading an application?

    without a 3rd party app, nope. Android Manager (and Samsung's Find My Device if you own one) notify the phone when a tracking request has been initiated. And in any case, this only gives you a snapshot location, not a real-time tracking. You could have a GPS transmitter hidden in the case, though. It's a 3rd party accessory, but not 3rd party app hehe

    Well when Matt Damon makes a phone call somewhere in the world, the CIA who are desperate to kill him press a few buttons at their HQ, turn to a map which zooms in to a particular location/street/town/country with a flashing light to show where Matt is, and ten seconds later the car with hitmen is pulling up at that spot. If this is just fantasy, I don't like it.

    OP: It would probably be technically possible to do what you want, but you'd need the might of the CIA etc. 😕

    Entirely doable with a 3rd party app. And entirely hideable if the phone is rooted.
