AirTag as a tool for car theft

The AirTag locator is to make it easier for us to find things that we have lost or want to find quickly at home. This accessory can also be used for criminal purposes.

This includes, among other things, locating people and vehicles. According to local officials in Canada, AirTags are used to steal selected, mostly expensive cars. Since September this year, police have discovered five thefts of expensive cars in the York region using the Apple locator. However, it is not known what the actual scale is.

Thieves who aim to steal a selected car install the AirTag in various external parts of the car and then track the vehicle to steal it at a convenient moment. The whole operation is faster because they know where the car is permanently located.

Law enforcement agencies believe that this accessory will be increasingly used for such purposes.

It is worth recalling that AirTag sends information to smartphone owners that it has been within it for a long time, but not all people have modern smartphones, and many people may not respond to such messages.
