Why is his phone tracking his movements and who has access to that information? Things to keep you up at night.

That tracking is for your safety,of course.

Don’t want your cellphone reporting every move ?
Then get a metal can with metal lid and pop the phone inside when you don’t want to be tracked.But you won’t be able to receive or make calls or play games or listen to your music or .....

Most mobile phones will do that, ping your location all recorded by phone company, which could be accessed by law enforcement doing an investigation... unless you turn off the phone AND remove the battery. Also if an malcontent or intelligence service was interested, they could send a bug, turn on the phone without one knowing, and listen in to anything spoken in the room around you. Israeli’s used to do this with regular phone taps, called a “glass”, so the phone would become a speaker.

All cell phones have their movements tracked. The Clinton administration had it put into law in the 1990’s. They did it very fast after a woman was trapped in her car in a blizzard and they could talk to her but not find her. It would have been easy to build in a switch to turn the function on or off, but the legislation did not allow for that....

So, anytime your cell phone is on, you are being tracked.

Hell, all they needed to do was: 1. Charge the damn battery. 2.Call the provider with the 15 digit IMEI, and ask for the frigging PUK code. Not that tough.

I know basically nothing about cellphones but I do know that mine is capable,through google,of tracking my location.One must check several approval boxes to set it up but it works surprisingly well.
