basic location features


I have a question in regards to the basic location features. Does a person know they are being tracked through basic location features? If so how will they now? This person also does not have any app downloaded associated with AT&T.

Let's provide you with more information about device location features @g1234.


A person is not usually notified if they are being tracked as this is done in the background on the device.


If they do not have any AT&T apps installed on their device, they are not being tracked through us. You would need to have the AT&T Secure Family app installed for this service to be available. 


However, different apps do request different permissions and we would not be able to provide you with information on if those apps would be tracking the device. 


We hope this provided you with the information you needed. Thank you for contacting AT&T Community Forums.
