Moved to correct forum...

What do you mean? People can't track your phone unless you install an app that let them do it. Have you installed anything? If you have, you just uninstall it.

  • Would your boss have had access to your phone to install anything? 
  • Is there any installed apps that shouldn't be there? 
  • If your phone is being used for work, is it being managed by your work's IT department? 

If you said NO to these questions then your boss is probably just guessing where you are, or someone is saying something, not your phone.

Is it your phone, or your employers phone (i.e. who owns the phone?)

This sounds like the sort of software people install on their phones so if it gets stolen they can track it...

Sounds like theyve got something like Meraki running... :)

Ive got it set on a few of our work phones for testing, useless for tracking iPhones.
