If that is not the case, then what other methods can be used with a Motog, to stop tracking? Any help is appreciated :).
Yes, one’s phone cannot be tracked while it’s turned off. Depending upon how one has location services set on one’s phone, Google may be able to map its last known location before the phone was powered down.
It is entirely possible to turn off Google’s location services, however, doing so would mean not being able to locate your phone should it become lost or stolen.
