FBI might be trying to stop terrorists.  Minority groups could be targeting whites;  far right whites could be targeting minorities; cults could be trying to monitor and control targets; cartels could be trying to steal and control targets.  In the hands of dishonest trackers, your life, privacy and finances could be in jeopardy.  Even zealous police officers who think they are right could be wrong.  Yet we do not want terrorists or violent criiminals oose evading law enforcement. It is the opinion of this website that no one is safe with cell phones and to consider keeping the phones off, the batteries out, when not in use, and even this might not be 100% full-proof in keeping your location  from being known, and to use the phones only for emergencies. Pay attention to the accents, inflections and vocal qualities of the people answering the phone as customer service agents for cell phone companies.  Try to insist on:  monopoly break-ups, anti-trust, and small American companies - American cell phones for and by Americans.  Monopoly break-ups include dissolving tower and line ownership into small isolated chunks so no one company or conglomerate has most or all of the control.  People want nationwide coverage and better coverage in rural areas, but there has been a price to pay for this in terms of monopolies dominating the signal providing equipment as lines and towers.  Currently one major cell phone company that keeps absorbing other companies to become a very large entity piggybacks on at least two other major carriers.  Sim styles ie esims are making boundaries between carriers more competitive and difficult.
