Actress Leslie Mann uses the Find My Friends app to track her daughter Maude's movements at college.

Leslie Mann tracks her teenage daughter's movements at college via a phone app.

The How to Be Single star has been married to director and producer Judd Apatow since 1997, with the pair sharing daughters Maude, 18, and Iris, 14.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night (23Nov16), Leslie opened up about her two girls, sharing that she has struggled with Maude’s decision to attend Northwestern University in Chicago, where she’s studying Radio, Television and Film.

Though her daughter now lives thousands of miles away, she does take some consolation in the fact that, unbeknownst to Maude, she is tracking her every move using her phone.

"I have this app on my phone called Find My Friends which lets me track her," Leslie told host Jimmy. "It gives me a lot of comfort... when I wake up in the middle of the night and get worried that she’s safe, I check Find My Friends and see that she’s home, usually."

However, Leslie once noticed that Maude was at a fraternity house near her campus, and couldn’t help but message her about her whereabouts.

"I texted her, 'Maude, go home,'" she laughed. "I think she probably thinks I’m psychic or something."

Leslie explained that she and Maude got the app during their time at British music festival Glastonbury so that they could find each other amongst the "scary" crowds. The star also tracked her daughter’s friends during their vacation.

"I tracked her and her friends and I don’t think they know that I’m still tracking them. And now they know because they’re backstage," said Leslie.

Meanwhile, the 44-year-old adds that Iris is also not impressed with her older sister’s choice to move away for collage, because it means she has to spend a lot more time at home with her parents.

"Iris is p**sed off that Maude left and that she’s alone in the house with us, and she’s like 'I don’t want to hang out with you guys, I don’t want to talk to you,'" smiled Leslie of Iris' teenage angst.
