Apple’s Tracker Detect app for Android prevents scary AirTag stalkers

Do you have an Android smartphone and is there secretly someone else’s AirTag in your bag? Until recently, you were in the dark, but that is about to change.

Android users no longer stalked with AirTags

Apple has been working on an app for some time to warn Android users about the possible proximity of someone else’s AirTag. Since an AirTag is very small, it is easy for stalkers to track their victims undetected. iPhones have had a warning system for this for a long time, but Apple now also has a solution for Android smartphones.

Apple’s official Tracker Direct app is now available on the Google Play Store. Tracker Detect looks for trackers that are separate from their owner and that are compatible with Apple’s Find My network. These trackers include the AirTag, but also compatible trackers from other manufacturers. If you think someone is using an AirTag or other tracker to track your location, you can locate them with the Tracker Detect app.

Since trackers are becoming more and more ‘normal’ and many keys have an AirTag attached to them, the app is certainly not unimportant. Your safety should not depend on the smartphone you use. It was certainly time for an Android app to intercept AirTags. Better late than never, but Apple should have come a bit sooner with this.

Searching for your wallet or keys is a thing of the past with the AirTag. This is a small device that you attach to your keys or to your bag. You can also put it in your bag.
