The Future Use of Reverse Cell Phone Lookup

By: Nikola Govorko

Reverse cell phone lookup is the last in line of personal information gathering technologies available to regular people just by browsing the web. Reverse look up enables any one of us to research who is the owner of a particular phone number no matter whether it is cell or regular phone. So what are the possible future implementations of reverse phone number lookup?

It is obvious we have made tremendous advance in communication technology over the last 50 years. Your author is now 35 years old and my generation takes phones, both the cells and regulars, for granted, but to my mom it was not so. She can remember the time when you have to ask the operator to connect you, and then those operators had to make manual switches if you wanted to talk.

Today you can call your spouse, mother, father, child or just about whomever you want from the top of Mount Everest. In addition, just as little as 15 years ago cell phones where not something anyone had or could afford to have. These days cell phone service providers are practically giving them away for free.

Computer chips have made it possible for technologies like reverse cell phone lookup to track down cell phone numbers location with the help of a GPS system. Nevertheless, some of us are asking whether we should use technology like this.

There is a legitimate question of loosing ones privacy, and now more then ever we are close to having technological gadgets until recently seen only in SF movies and books.

However, as we now have the ability to track the mobile systems information, then in the following years we can certainly expect to see fast rise of services offering such information for a price. Naturally, we hope that government will impose a strict control over services such as reverse cell phone lookup in order to prevent misuse of information these services provide and to protect our rights as individuals.

US government already has a number of strict privacy protection laws that maintain your rights and prevent your most private information from being available to the public. However, with rapid advancement of technology it is hard even for government to keep up with it and pass the laws that can protect you completely.

In the recent years more and more people has begun to take precautions about identity theft and about privacy protection in general. In the end the more thought we give to legal protection of our rights, the more services as reverse cell phone lookup will be useful for everyones legitimate purposes.
