If you don't want them looking on your phone, don't utilize their network. It's as simple as that in my opinion.

As a member in the Air Force, we have some people who don't access their bank or credit card accounts from government computers. They don't want our comm (short for communications, otherwise IT) personnel to see their passwords and sensitive information. We can be monitored at any time by comm because of utilizing a government computer while at work.
