The 26-year-old model detailed the incident in an Instagram post on Thursday (January 6). She said that when she went to a bar in New York and put her coat on the back of a chair, someone might have secretly put an AirTag in the pocket of her clothes. Throughout the night, she was tracked for 5 hours, until her iPhone indicated that an unknown accessory had been moving with her, and then she realized the abnormality and found the AirTag in her coat when she returned home.

Brooks Nader said that night was the scariest thing she had ever experienced. The purpose of writing down what happened is to remind everyone to be aware of similar risks. During the process of being tracked, she never knew that she had airtags to carry with her.

IT Home learned that Apple's AirTag was released in April 2021 and is powered by coin cell batteries. This product uses Bluetooth, UWB ultra-wideband radio technology to connect to the iPhone, making it easy for users to accurately find the location of items.

Previously, in New York, usa, there have been a number of AirTag tracking cases, the objects of tracking are women, and the strange AirTag is hidden in the hidden place of the car. In addition, there are car thieves who like to use AirTags to track high-end cars.

Apple's iOS 15.2 Beta2 system has brought a new Find My feature, which allows users to scan AirTags that may be tracking them, or enable the "Find" function, helping to prevent the device from being used for tracking. As can be seen from the model's situation, the function also needs to be further improved in sensitivity in order to identify unknown devices as soon as possible. In addition, Apple has also launched a Tracker Detect app for Android devices to actively scan AirTags.
