Apple Might Add New Safety Feature Alerting You If You’re Being Tracked.
Apple is rumored to be gearing up to release its homegrown tracking device called AirTags sometime this year. But with the addition of the new location tech to its arsenal of cutting-edge products comes questions on user privacy and protection.
It appears that Apple is functioning to deal with these issues in its new iOS drop. consistent with 9To5Mac, developers of Apple’s newest OS update have outfitted the Find My app — which allows Apple users to register and find lost devices — with enhanced safety features.
Apple blogger Benjamin Mayo tweeted a screenshot of the reported safeguard.
Mayo says Apple will use the feature to “prevent ‘stalking’ with AirTags.”
“If someone secretly hides a tag in your possessions, your phone will notice and warn you about it,” he added.
It’s unclear when the new AirTags could be released or what they’re going to appear as if . In January, SPIGEN‘s sub-label Cyrill posted — and quickly removed — keyring style protector designs for the as-of-yet unreleased AirTags.
