Earlier this year, Apple finally pulled the wraps from much-awaited AirTag. Ever since then, there have been multiple privacy concerns regarding Apple’s item tracker. Apple has released a new privacy focussed update for AirTag and is also working on an Android app.
Security researchers, YouTubers, and DIY enthusiasts seem to be having a great time with Apple AirTag. Recently a YouTuber showed how AirTag can be turned into a thin wallet that fits into your pocket. Meanwhile, a security researcher hacked AirTag and successfully modified its NFC URL. This time around, security researchers have used AirTag’s Find My network to send messages without Apple’s knowledge.
When you pair an AirTag with your iPhone, it is automatically linked to your Apple ID. This also means that you cannot simply hand over your AirTag to a friend or family member to use. You must first reset the AirTag and unlink it with your Apple ID before someone else can use it.
After much fanfare, Apple finally launched the AirTags item tracker. Apple’s Tile Competitor is well priced, and the integration with Find My app is one of its strong points. The puck-shaped AirTag is bulged in the middle and is bulky in some sense.
When the AirTag first launched, there were a lot of concerns about its safety and privacy. Many believed that the tracking tags could make it easy to track anyone. On its part, Apple highlighted several privacy measures built into AirTags to ensure they cannot be used to track anyone. However, it looks like these measures are not enough as the AirTags make it “frighteningly easy” to stalk anyone.
