    Are you referring to Find My Device?

    Using the app from the google store "android device manager", I go to android.com/find and locate my device. However I do this, it sends the phone a popup that says the device has been located.
    I want to know how to keep the popup from showing so I can locate a phone secretly.

    Try disabling notifications for Google Play Services.

    Google disallowed apps not showing that the phone is being tracked. If it does that, it gets removed from the Play Store.

    Since you have the Google Account of the phone you are tracking, why not just use the timeline feature of Google Maps? Unless you've specifically disabled it, it's on by default and you can track where the device goes. With history of movement over the last few weeks.

    Hmm. The Find My Device app on my Note 4 does just that after disabling notifications for Google Play Services.

    Well the Note 4 isn't actually up to date on software so maybe that's part of it. But that's why apps like Cerberus and Lookout now have the notification because Google disallowed the background tracking.

    Could be. OP didn't say what phone they had.
