Did You Know You Can Now Scan Apple Airtags Around You Via This Android App - TechieEngineer.com

Apple launched its Airtags to track anything you wish to via your ‘Find my’ network in your iOS device or your MacBooks. These small trackers are handy when someone forgets their thing a lot as you could now track your lost wallet or lost keys or literally anything on which you put an Apple Airtag.

But do you ever wonder what will you do if someone uses Airtag to track your location? What if they hide an airtag in your bag secretly to find out your location? Well, Apple said it would try to fix this and as a part of the solution Apple has now made an android app that will scan the hidden airtags around you which are connected to any ‘Find my’ network.

What is the App?

So, the android app ‘Tracker Detect’ is now available on the Google Play Store, which you can’t use to set up or manage AirTags but only to scan for AirTags and other devices that use Apple’s “Find My” network.

Apple has described the app as:

Tracker Detect looks for item trackers that are separated from their owner and that are compatible with Apple’s Find My network. These item trackers include AirTag and compatible devices from other companies. If you think someone is using AirTag or another device to track your location, you can scan to try to find it.

You can download the app for your Android smartphones by the link below:

Android App to scan for unknown Apple Airtags – Tracker Detect

Currently, the app does not have a background scanning feature that allows scanning for the airtags around you periodically. This will result in scanning for the airtags manually every time you feel suspicious that someone is using airtags against you. As part of the solution to security and privacy, we hope Apple will soon work on such updates in the future and will provide Android users with a much more beneficial app.
