What model phone is it? You can disable location services in the phone's settings, or disable some app permissions to access location, which will vary by phone.

On iPhones this will be in Settings under Privacy, and for most Android phones, once in Settings, you can disable location services in the "Location" setting, or restrict specific apps accessing location in the "Application Manager."

Including you?  It isnt actually that easy to track a phone.

Tracking a phone would require either they be on the same account with the subscription service in place on the phones.   Or, she would have to share her account information with some one. (Gmail and password, or apple ID and password).   Unless she is giving this information out, she can't be tracked.

I strongly believe in the safety feature provided by phone location apps.  Especially for young ladies. 

It is not possible to disable E911 location.  However, if you need that, it takes far too much time to actually access that to locate a phone and user.

As a mother myself, I know how important it is to safeguard your children. I want to ensure that we are on the same page. What make/model device does your daughter use? Is there reason to believe her phone is currently being tracked through our Family Locator service or another service?
