It's none of your business

"It's none of your business" is an everyday expression used to convey to the person being addressed that the matter being discussed (could be about a person) is no concern of that person & he/should not interfere in the matter or try to find out more about it.

The expression "It's none of your business" is most often said in an angry tone of voice, perhaps with pointing fingers or banging the desk to emphasize the point. It may even be said like this: "Damn it! It’s none of your business!" or "What the hell! It’s none of your business!" or "Get lost! It’s none of your business!"

Note: The exclamation mark gets conveyed in the conversation through the loud tone of voice.
