Brooks Nader, swimsuit model from Sports Illustrated, has publicly denounced that it has been followed without its consent by a tracking device, specifically by an Apple AirTag.
Although the company made modifications to iOS 14.5 so that this was not possible, there are already several cases reported about these criminal practices. In the case of the model, when she noticed the warning on her iPhone that she was being followed, she was already at home. The tracker had achieved its purpose: to know where he lived.
Since the rumors started a couple of years ago about Apple’s launch of a locator tracker built into the “Search” system of iOS, I saw that it could be an object “dangerous»If it was used fraudulently.
For 35 Euros, you can buy a AirTag, and hide it in a pocket or in your victim’s car, and have it permanently located. Apple realized this could happen, and delayed the release of AirTags until it made a modification in iOS 14.5 to “avoid” such tracking. If your mobile detects that you have been near an AirTag that is not yours for a long time, it will notify you of this.
But that does not prevent that due to the low cost of the device, the malicious “tracker” does not try to see if it is lucky and its victim does not see the warning on their iPhone in time. Once the object is found, the victim cannot know whose it is. This is what happened to the model a few days ago Brooks Nader.
The stalker achieved his goal
Nader, a swimsuit model for Sports Illustrated magazine, explained a few days ago on her Instagram account that she had been located for more than five hours with an AirTag. One night he went out for drinks, and at some point a stranger shoved an AirTag into his coat pocket.
When Nader noticed the warning her iPhone issued, indicating that an unknown AirTag was locating her, it was too late. He was already at home. For 35 Euros, the stalking spy already knew where he lives. Mission accomplished.
A few weeks ago we also published the news of a band of thieves Canadian luxury car company that also used AirTags hidden on the outside of the cars chosen to be stolen, and thus know where they remain parked, to later be stolen. Apple must give its system one more turn in order to avoid such criminal locations.
