  • I had the ability to track our phones put on both of my younger sons phones when they were teens (their older brothers were adults and on their own before they got cell phones because they weren't as affordable when they were teens). It wasn't because I didn't trust them, it was more to find their phones if they ever misplaced them. Once it helped us locate a stolen phone because even turned off the phone set off an alarm which sucked for the person who stole the phone.
