Nice to meet you, *****!
Where do you want to turn off this feature?

Customer Replay

on my phone. I’ve been told some has that ability to track my location by my phone

Do you have an iPhone?

yes Iphone13pro

This feature was implemented in order to find your lost phone
Are you sure that you want to disable it?

Customer Replay

so another person can’t find out my location with that feature not available

You can share your location to the desired person (such as family member or close friends)
If you want to do it, of course
Nobody else can track your location without access to your Apple ID account.

Yes does turning on airplane mode accomplish what I want?

You can turn it off by the steps below:

  1. Go to Settings > Privacy & Security > Tracking.
    The list shows the apps that requested permission to track you. You can turn permission on or off for any app on the list.
  2. To stop all apps from asking permission to track you, turn off Allow Apps to Request to Track (at the top of the screen).

Thank you very much. Then it seems I can turn that off or on, correct?

Sure, *****!

wow that really helped me.

Airplane mode doesn't impact the GPS signal.
You are welcome:)
Is there anything else I can do for you today?

Customer Replay

No thank you again
