Hi, so I have had an online friend for a few month now and he wanted to call me so he gave me his number. I called him and everything was fine and we had a nice conversation but I realized that he now has my number and I think I shouldn't have given that information out. I heard that you can track people with there mobile number. Should I be worried? What should I do?

You can get a phones location via its number according to Google. However I've never done it and no one I know has ever mentioned doing it. If you've been talking via the Internet for a while and the conversation was pleasant why are you worried? Is there anything that made you think he was a weirdo? If he really wanted to find you he could probably use your IP address to locate you anyway.

Its not very easy to to trace someone by there mobile number unless you are the police same with a persons IP Number it would only be a creep that would want to trace someones details you can change your number
