Apple AirTags are fantastic at locating misplaced stuff. They are capable of tracking your stuff to within 0.1 feet.
However, their accuracy allows them to be exploited as sophisticated tracking tools in the hands of the wrong people.
It appears that people are utilizing AirTags to keep tabs on each other
By concealing the device in a car or a personal object such as a purse, it may be used to track people.
Despite the newness of the AirTags, it’s evident that Apple hasn’t yet figured out the best way to protect its customers.
According to the Apple, the modifications to the gadget will make suspicious tags easier to find and will inform customers earlier if an AirTag is traveling with them.
Apple claimed that any user setting up their AirTag for the first time would see a message warning that tracking people without their knowledge is illegal in many parts of the world.
Additionally, Apple stated that it will provide additional information and tools to its support page on unwanted tracking.
If an unknown AirTag moves with an iPhone user (or an Android user who downloads an app), they will receive “unwanted tracking” notifications.
People will be notified sooner if an unknown AirTag is traveling with them, according to Apple.
Users of iPhone 11, iPhone 12, and iPhone 13 devices will be able to use “precision finding” to view the distance and direction to an unknown AirTag when it is in range when they are warned of “unwanted tracking” by an AirTag.
