I'm doing a bit of research on workplace privacy and work phones and I want to ask a question. Let's say you are required or you want to have a separate phone for work for privacy reasons.

You know that your employer will be monitoring your usage of the phone, text, data, telephone calls etc. You know they might be tracking your every move too. It's even technically possible to turn on an deactivated cell phone nowadays.

Is there some material that you could use to make lockbox that would block cell phone signals completely? That way when your workday is done then you simply turn off the mobile phone then drop it in the lockbox until the next workday.

Seems like a good way to prevent off duty spying by your employer.... just curious.

It's called "find a new employer".
I wouldn't work for a company that tracked me via cellular no matter how much they paid me.

But any metal enclosure will block cell signals. Find a metal box and put your phone in it, then call it. If it doesn't ring - it's blocked.

I see there are some for sale on amazon that claim to work for cell signals, bluetooth and wifi. Does anyone have any experience with their effectiveness?
