If you're carrying a cell phone — even a simple flip phone with no sort of real display — someone somewhere is tracking your location. Even if there's no SIM card inside, the phone is in constant contact with cellular towers as long as it is turned on and one or more are in range. When you add some smarts to the mix and use something like an Android phone, things get a bit more complex.
We cannot help you hide your movements from carriers or cell towers because that is a little past the grey line between privacy and the law. But we can help you prevent Google from knowing where you have been and when you were there — what you need to know is that the name of some settings might not be what you think they mean.
Do not worry. We've got you covered.
