Does it looks something like this?

The picture won't load for me so I assume it's this. http://www.jmschip.com/pedalmax-2011...ford-vehicles/

Definitely seems aftermarket since it's just hanging there. Thought it might be the JMSchip or SprintBooster, but it doesn't look like either. Could be one of those devices that monitor how the car is driven. Any idea if it was previously a rental vehicle?

It looks like a car monitor with gps tracker , or if your car is ecoboost it maybe a power chip by OBD , do not worry , just unplug it and open the box , if it will contain a GSM SIM card you can send it to trash
If your car is GT the power chip will not work because there is no tourbo to steering.
Unplug , open and check , do not worry

I've seen things like the GPS installed when you finance cars to aid in repo's if needed.

The space aliens know where you are and they're going to take you to the mothership. And it's a giant Camaro! Pull the box and throw it into the trash!
Seriously though, take some more pics of it so we can figure out what it is

It's definitely a tracking device of some sort. Do a Google image search on "gps tracker for car" and you'll see alot of products that look identical to the lowest hanging box on the left in your picture. From the picture it looks like the original OBD is hanging down on the right and they mounted the piggy-backed one in its place. I would remove that thing and remount the factory OBD where it belongs unless it is part of your financing and the car wont run without it?!?

The financial institution that loaned you money to buy the Mustang does not trust you, and wants to track your location 24/7 apparently.

Remove it. More than likely, a parent had it installed to track their child's location in its past. I guess some parents think their kids would not find this and remove it. Or if the child did remove it, the parents took away their driving privileges?

If his finance company put it on they will be knocking on his door if he takes it off. They make you sign a special disclosure though if they put it on there.
