With AirTags already tightening down to how it can be tracked in terms of privacy, Apple’s first-tracking puck has come under the limelight for being purposed for something nefarious; vehicle theft.
In Canada, police has identified a number of car theft that can directly be linked to Apple’s AirTags. According to the York Regional Police:
Since September 2021, officers have investigated five incidents where suspects have placed small tracking devices on high-end vehicles so they can later locate and steal them. Brand name ‘air tags’ are placed in out-of-sight areas of the target vehicles when they are parked in public places like malls or parking lots. Thieves then track the targeted vehicles to the victim’s residence, where they are stolen from the driveway.
While Apple does push notifications to devices if and unauthorized AirTag is being used to track the location of say a vehicle, luggage, and more, it appears that this clearly goes unchecked with most people not paying much attention to these notifications.
It is important to note here that thieves have no way of disabling these anti-tracking features from Apple.
