Apple AirTags are coin-sized devices that can be attached to keys, backpacks, purses and other items to help people track them down via iPhone if they’re misplaced.
The $30 device is also being used by stalkers to track people. At the time of its release in April 2021, Apple told consumers not to worry as AirTags were designed to prohibit ‘unwarranted tracking’ by alerting a nearby iPhone when an AirTag has been separated from its user. For example, if someone was to place an AirTag on a car but not get in the car, then the driver of the vehicle should be alerted that there is an AirTag nearby or moving with them.
