News 5 – Apple AirTag placed unknowingly on West Park woman’s car, tracked her location for hours

An Apple AirTag is a quarter-sized, Bluetooth tracking device. They are relatively cheap and are advertised as a “super-easy way to keep track of your stuff,” you just attach it to your keys or purse and you can find the item using an app.

But AirTags can also be used as a way to stalk people and track their location unknowingly.

“If it notices an AirTag is traveling with you, that’s not yours, it will provide an alert…You can download an application to be able to identify if these are nearby.” – Alex Hamerstone, Advisory Solutions Director
