You can attach the device to any wallet, backpack, purse, suitcase, keychain, or even your dog’s collar. The goal is to keep track of these items via your phone. But there are a few additional details you should be aware of. Keep reading to learn more and decide whether the Apple AirTag is right for you.
Apple AirTag, According to Apple’s Website…
AirTag is a cost-effective way to keep track of your stuff. You can locate it in the Find My app, the same place you keep track of friends and family members’ locations with the necessary permissions.
The second you misplace an item attached to your AirTag, all you have to do is ping it to find it. The built-in speaker on the AirTag will sound. If the AirTag is further away, you can put it into Lost Mode. Once a device detects it in the network (yours or someone else’s), you’ll get a notification.
The best part about these Apple devices? Your information is 100% private. Your location will never be stored in the AirTag itself. The entire system is anonymous, meaning your identity is kept secret every step of the way for your protection.
