Apple AirTags: how is the update so that they do not persecute you

Apple incorporated new tools into its iOS operating system to prevent unscrupulous users from tracking other people without their consent.something that they explain can constitute a crime.

The update is part of the iOS 15.4 beta which is beginning to be distributed among developers and those users who are registered to be part of this previous release.

As part of the changes, when trying to connect an AirTag with an iPhone, Apple users will now see text warning that using these devices to track people without their consent can be a crime.

“This item is linked to your Apple ID. You can locate this item using the Search network. Using this item to track people without their consent is a crime in many regions of the world. This item is designed to be detected by victims and to allow security forces to identify the owner,” the message read.

with that message Apple intends to dissuade users who plan to use AirTags for purposes other than those for which they were designed..

Apple’s efforts to make the use of AirTags safer arise after dozens of cases were disclosed in which criminals were using the tracking device to commit crimes.

Such is the case of luxury vehicle thefts registered in Canada where the thieves used this mechanism to track the cars and identify the place where their owners lived to later seize them.

One aspect that facilitates this is the size of the Apple Airtag, only 31.9 millimeters, which allows them to go unnoticed by the victims..

For this reason, the authorities recommend that if a person receives a notification on their iPhone that an AirTag is active in their vicinity, they should try to locate a safe place and then follow the instructions on their cell phone to find the device and deactivate it.

It is also necessary to remember that each AirTag is associated with an Apple ID, so once the device is found, it is possible to easily identify the person to whom it belongs and therefore locate the person responsible for the illegal tracking.
