  • How is an IMEI number helpful for me?

International Mobile Station Equipment Identity Number (IMEI) is a unique 15 digit number. 

This number varies even with the same model. For example, no two iPhone 10 have the same IMEI number, or in that case, no two phones of the same or different models have the same IMEI number.  

It is given during the manufacturing for identification purposes. Even when you change your SIM card, your device can be traced using the IMEI number easily. 

Can anybody use my IMEI number to track me? 

Yes, but not necessarily trace you unless they have your personal identification linked to the number. 

Particularly with prepaid customers, there is no signed contract between them and the wireless network they use. 

Indeed, it becomes difficult for the Government or hackers to trace you as it doesn’t happen to any average citizen.
