Woman charged with murder after allegedly using AirTag to stalk partner

Apple launched AirTags with the aim of allowing its users to find lost objects more easily, especially items such as wallets, backpacks and bags, for example. However, malicious people are using the portable tracker to commit crimes and stalk other users.

Aware of this “adverse effect” caused by the device, the manufacturer released some updates to prevent people from being tracked without consent, including a special application for Android phones and a mode that emits an audible alert if the device is away from the owner for a long time.

Despite all these layers of security against stalking, a report released by the US newspaper USA Today claims that a woman residing in the state of Indiana, in the United States, would have used the AirTag to stalk her boyfriend in order to confirm an alleged betrayal.

According to information, the accused would have found her partner with another woman – who also did not have her identity released – following the indications of the apple tracker. Later, she allegedly argued with the boy and hit him with the car to death.
