According to a report by 9to5Mac, the West Seneca Police Department in New York received two cases of AirTag abuse, the first was a female who reported that she had received a notification about Apple moving AirTag with her, as police found the AirTag under the bumper in the woman’s car, according to the report.
In the same week, another woman came forward to report a similar problem, however, the police were unable to locate the AirTag, and a police officer was quoted as saying: “Officers checked her car very carefully and were unable to locate her, and communication was cut off shortly after. So at this point, it’s not really known if he was in the car, or if her phone was alerted about something nearby.”
The report said that police do not believe the two cases are linked, however, they want to raise awareness and warn residents to be vigilant.
While AirTags are useful for finding lost items like keys, backpacks, and more, there has always been this sense of misuse, and at the time of AirTags’ launch, Apple mentioned what to do if a user finds unknown AirTags.
If the user detects unknown AirTags, they can tap on them using an iPhone or NFC-enabled device and the instructions will direct them to disable the unknown AirTags.
However, unless AirTags are kept in plain sight, it is really hard to tell if there is an unknown device in the vicinity or not. Unknown AirTags have been seen traveling with them from place to place over time.
