NEW YORK (PIX11) -- New York City phone booths have reportedly been tracking your every move.

According to BuzzFeed, Titan -- the company that controls hundreds of ad displays on phone booths --  has planted tiny tracking devices in hundreds of them.

They are called beacons and can track your movements as well as push their ads onto your cell phone.

The company said the devices were solely for "testing purposes."

City Hall has asked the company to remove all of the devices from the booths.

A spokesperson for Mayor de Blasio says they will be gone within a couple of days.
