  • So I wonder how exactly it determines “home” so let’s say the stocker wanted to track someone they knew, could they set up their account as that person home address? Then would the air tag also think it’s home when they get home so the person being stalked never gets notified? On the reverse side of that if it did notify me would that mean if I borrowed my wife’s keys that had an air tag on it would it recognize that air tag has been around me in the past as to not freak me out when I got back home? I feel like there are so many questions to how this works

  • I think the whole notifying thing is overprotective. Yes, it can be used to stalk people but so can a small GPS tracker you can buy on Amazon for half the price. If anyone wanted to stalk you, they have lots of options other than Airtags.

  • So they have a feature that can tell you when someone is potentially "stalking" you but you won't know about it later in the day once you're home? Then what's the point of it? You say it prevents people from getting nervous but it would made me even more nervous to be told that at the end of the day and now I can't do anything about it anymore... Also what if the "stalker" has bad intentions and doesn't wait until you get home before doing something to do, then you won't even get notified at all. These tags seem great for lost ITEMS and all but that stalker feature just sounds like a gimmick

    OLGMCOLGMCVor 6 Tage
  • To people thinking stalkers will use this: It's probably the worst tracking device you could be using if you want to stalk someone. There are far better devices that are 100% totally anonymous that wouldn't need an apple account and phone attached to it. Think about it, let's say stalker 1 has an apple account registered in his name, and used an airtag to stalk person 1. Person 1 gets the notification, calls the police, police get serial number from airtag, assigned to stalker 1's apple account. Police use stalker 1's apple account to show up at stalker 1s home. Stalker 1 now gets owned. Stalker 1 could easily have purchased a regular tracking device that has no account or phone associated with it in order to stalk person 1. Use some common sense people. EDIT: Even if "stalker" registers a fake apple account with a fake name, law enforcement would be able to trace the phone attached to the serial number on the airtag to see everywhere they've been. Like I said before, there are alot of tracking devices that are way more discreet and have no attachments whatsoever. Nobody's gonna use an airtag to stalk someone unless they're a moron.

  • Thanks, i was wondering about that myself. I think most bike thiefs would drop the bike close to where they live but not in their own driveway, so in theory it should work. Unfortunately i also think most bike thiefs would check under the seat before they even touch the bike as these become more popular, so a smaller version you could hide in the frame or handlebars would be nice.

  • So, the Airtag will follow you silently until you get home? Stalker is following you, you get home, Airtag then decides to notify you that you are being tracked (Too late, Serial kille already knows exactly where you live & has probably already dissolved your body in acid or fed you to the pigs so there is NO TRACE of you left.

    Damon LamDamon LamVor 10 Tage
  • It depends on the item. You could hide an AirTag very well deep inside a vehicle and even if the thief were to be notified, they may not be able to find it and dispose of it in enough time. Same with any other item if the AirTag can be hidden in such a way that it's difficult to find/remove. I do appreciate the explanation on how this works. I recently bought a 4-pack simply because I misplace things all the time so they will be a life saver for me. Smaller items such as backpacks, bikes, handbags, etc. I completely agree with you, it can be found quickly and unless some revisions are made in the future, thieves will either be made aware via a notification or will simply learn about these devices and check for them before stealing items.

    Chin MingChin MingVor 10 Tage
  • I think a good solution would be to have your phone disable any Air Tags (that are not yours meaning not paired with your device) that are within a meter or so of you. For example: if a stalker places one inside a persons backpack or pocket, that person who is unaware wouldn't have to worry because his phone would disable the Air Tag until he is further away from it (far enough that it's considered to not be on that person). I'm not sure how Apple would be able to implement this on their phones, let alone phones that are not iPhone ones or apple devices but I think that would fix the issue with it. The only major con I can think of is if you do lose or misplace an item and you want to find it with no malicious intent, then it may be disabled due to being near other phones even if it was used to retrieve misplaced or lost items. However, I think I also have a solution to this issue as well which would be to have the person who is looking for their lost item which could be disabled due to being near another phone. In which case that person who is looking for their lost item would have the option to request the Air Tag to send a notification to the person(s) disabling the Air Tag. So an example to this would be: I lose an item and can't track it due to there being another phone too close to the vicinity of the Air Tag causing it to be disabled. What I would do from there is open the Find My app and send a request that tells the Air Tag to any of the people near it giving them the option to allow tracking once again. That notification would say something like "An Air Tag near you has been disabled due to being too close has requested to be trackable again. Please check if there is an unwanted Air Tag on your person or in any item that you own. If you do not have an Air Tag in any of your personal possessions that is not yours please click allow tracking so that the person who lost their tag may find it again, however if you find an unwanted Air Tag on your person or in any personal items that you own please click Reject Tracking". I'm sure Apple can find a way to shorten that notification since it would be too wordy to phrase it that way I have. If you read this than thank you for taking the time :)

    • Yeah it's almost as if everyone is suddenly shocked that stalkers exist. They are acting like Apple has just invented stalking. They don't stop to think about all the little details like... as soon as you register it Apple can, if asked by the police, tell them who it was and where. Trackers have existed for a long time, Tile, Samsung Tag and so on. A stalker can just follow you (sounds crazy right). These are not designed to deter thieves or to stop criminals. If Apple could solve theft and stalking with a 30USD piece of tech I think they would own the world.

  • I’m sure there is a way to report the person following you home if it’s a stalker because they’d have a iPhone. And you should have enough time to leave and call the police before they arrive to your location. If you can’t identify the stalker, wtf was apple thinking.

    NellzthekingNellzthekingVor 11 Tage
  • If I'm not mistaken, you get the notification if an air tag has been following you that has been separated from its owner. So the plane or bus situation won't set off the notifications because the other users tag will be with them. But if someone slipped on into your bag and didn't stay within range of it, then you get notified.

  • So someone steals your bag, takes it to their home, the thief potentially gets a notification that the bag is being tracked, they dump the bag and the tags and keep the content.... then what???? It's kind of pointless then, you just know where its been. increasing your frustration. The police attend, and the tracked person denies all knowledge and is like i dunno why I got this notification, must be a glitch or a neighbour etc. As theft recovery is kind of redundant. Apple could have made it smarter by notifying the owner of the tag that the item is moving away from a tag owner, exceptions could be programmed in, for instance 'safe places' geofencing the tag like work and home etc. and then if an item starts moving the owner has to report the tag as stolen or missing, and then it tracks and doesn't report. They then have a window of time to recover the item. If they don't report it as stolen or lost after being notified with a timeframe then it notifies the person they're being stalked. I think they haven't thought it through very well.

  • One question: when the thief recognizes the Airtag at home and disables it immediately. Does the owner of the Airtag see the LAST location of the Airtag? Imagine your bike is stolen in the middle of the night. The thief comes home and disables the Airtag. After this you wake up in the morning and see that your bike is gone. Could you see the home location of the thief? Or even a route your Airtag has taken in the night?
