Apple AirTags’ anti-stalking features come with a dangerous loophole

Apple’s AirTags are finally on sale, and these $29 trackers promise to ensure that you never lose your keys ever again. However, as some reviewers have discovered, there are a couple of big loopholes in the AirTag’s privacy features.

During its announcement, Apple spoke of a few features to discourage its AirTags from being used to track people surreptitiously. These AirTags privacy protections sound impressive, such as the fact that an AirTag will sound an alert if it’s been separated from its paired iPhone for a certain amount of time, or that iPhone users will get on-screen notifications if a rogue AirTag is accompanying them.
