Apple’s AirTag is a handy tool for folks who don’t want to lose their valuables, such as key rings. You may wear one around the neck of your cat or dog to keep an eye on them. The U1 chip provides capability for Ultra Wideband to iPhone 11 and Apple Series 6 or later, offering AirTag users very specific directions to help identify an AirTag-attached device.
A 27-year-old Connecticut man is accused of concealing an AirTag in his vehicle so that it could be tracked
Last weekend, Connecticut police arrested Wilfred Gonzalez, a 27-year-old Waterbury man, and charged him with first-degree stalking, violation of a protection order, and breach of peace, according to CT Insider. When police arrived at the scene, they discovered the guy had installed “a tracking device… in the victim’s car.”
Gonzalez has already paid $10,000 bond and has not yet filed an attorney’s statement. On March 30, the matter will go to trial to see if the guy is charged with unlawful stalking. Two of the three charges against the defendant are felonies, so this could be a serious matter for him.
When a fake AirTag is tracking them, Android and iOS users can be notified
If an AirTag not owned by the phone owner is determined to be tracking that person’s position, Apple has put up a mechanism that will notify iPhone users. With that message, the victim has the option of turning off the AirTag’s tracking feature.
Apple’s Tracker Detect software is available for Android users to download. Apple created this software, which may be found on the Google Play Store. It will look for tracking devices, scan them, and make the AirTag beep.
