so our company is going to Ipads for all of us and its our understanding that they will moniter pretty close where we are all of the time.

I know even if you disable the wireless and turn it off they can still find out where you are.

Is there a type of case you can buy that is made of a material that cell / gps signals can't pass thru so you can put it in the case while you are not using it so they don't watch your every move?

I know they have to make something like that just can't find it. Thought I would ask everyone here if they knew of something?

Wrap it in foil and stick it in the microwave for 7 minutes. Has to be exactly 7 for the tracking chip to be deactivated.

No, they can track it regardless of case. It's actually a great safety feature of the iPad. Without my 4-digit code, my iPad is virtually un-stealable. I can track where it is anytime online.

The only way to "track" it per say, is to install Find My Ipad. And that is a legit app from Apple tied to the iTunes account that is synced with the iPad. It's a nice feature. But it can't really be leveraged to spy on you by other people.

There are also location sharing apps available that will share your location with others. But it's only people you give access too. If anything, just reset your iPad when you get it, and sync it to your own computer, and there is no way they can legally monitor your location.

Second nearly-just-as-obvious answer: Leave the iPad where you're supposed to be when you go somewhere where you're not supposed to be.

Where are you going to take your iPad? Home? Doesn't your employer know your address SSN, and all that jazz?

Also I don't think your employer can do that, unless they work for like Google or Apple or something like that, in which case they already can do that.

This is why I am asking the question, its not that I'm worried about where I am at, and I agree that if its their asset then they have every right to track it.

Basically I am asking if there is a briefcase that I would carry it in that is made of a material that would make it while it is in the case that it couldn't be tracked.

Thats all, there has to to something like that out there, or is it illegal to have a briefcase made of a material that can do that?

There are cell phone jammers available (probably illegal in most states) so something like that ought to work, although it might interfere with the people around you too.

Just take the battery out when you don't want to be tracked. If it doesn't have power they can't track it.

Or as someone else mentioned, reset it to a factory default settings. I use an Android and can do it, I can only assume that you can with an IPhone as well. If you don't have the software to track it then they won't be able to do it.

02-24-2012, 08:25 AM
as I understand it the tracking isn't realtime. It's continuously saved to a file locally then uploaded via iTunes. The App above constantly overwrites the file, so it only shows your last location, not the history.

It has to be if it works while it's turned off. Your iPad can't log itself onto a protected WiFi.

I'm not aware of any material or briefcase that will do what you are asking.

However, all you have to do is go into "Settings" on your iPad and turn "Location Services" off. That will accomplish what you're trying to do.

Is there still some top secret way that Apple can track the location of your iPad if you turn location services off? I don't know. But even if there is, your employer doesn't have access to it.

Wrong... the GPS chip requires power to work. It's not possible to track a phone that is completely powered off. Tracking requires that the phone transmit info back to the source, which cannot be done without power.

911 calls don't use GPS anyway. And 911 also will not work when the phone has no power. 911 will work on any phone even if the service has been disconnected. That may be what you're thinking of. But it still must have power to do so.

My recommendation: first moment you get the iPad head to the nearest titty bar that is near a customer's office, stay for 3 hours, use cash. Then sit back and see what happens. If they say why did you spend 3 hours in a go-go bar, tell them you were at ABC company with a customer and their GPS is wrong.

I'm saying the only way his work could monitor it's usage is if they set it up with their iTunes account instead of his iTunes account. You can't track somebody else without permission from their iTunes account. So if he just erased it and set it up with his iTunes account, there's no way his work could track it by legal means. They'd have to do something illegal in order to track it at that point.
