How to Stop Cell Phone Tracking

By Palmer Owyoung

If you have a phone with GPS or one that has "E911 capable" printed on the box then your phone is trackable. Supposedly the e911 is only supposed to be activated when you are making an emergency call, but there is nothing to keep the phone company from using it to know when you are down at your local pub, or getting a manicure at the salon. Many don't really mind, others feel this is an invasion of privacy. If you fit into the the latter group then you might want to stop cell phone tracking by getting a blocking device.

Things You'll Need

  • Cell phone to block
  • Cell phone blocker
