Apple launched a new Android app to help you find unknown AirTags


Apple has released a new app for Android device owners that enables them to find AirTag tracking pieces located near them.

The company had promised last June to launch an application for Android that would enable users who do not have an iPhone or iPad to find any AirTag near them that may be used by its owner to track them, learn more about it, and disable it if necessary.

When an unknown AirTag is found next to you, the application enables you to play an audio alert in the tracking piece for up to ten minutes to help you find it and provides a guide to the steps that will help you remove its battery and deactivate the AirTag permanently if you wish to do so.

This new app also supports any compatible device with Apple's Find My network from third-party companies, and the user can simply search these parts using Bluetooth (the search process can take up to 10 minutes to find an unknown AirTag). But unfortunately it does not do this search in the background, so you will have to open the app now and then, and do a manual search if you suspect someone is using a tracking piece to get to your location.

“Tracker Detect looks for item trackers that are separated from their owner and that are compatible with Apple’s Find My network. These item tracker 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.” Said Apple.

Tracker Detect also does not provide any additional feature to help Android users to set up and manage their AirTag, and it does not require an Apple account to work. The app is available on Google Play Store, and you can install it by following this link.
