You’ll be spitting mad about this new Apple product’s alarming link to a dangerous criminal trend

Social media giants like Twitter and Facebook have been scrutinized for increasing levels of censorship.

But anti-free speech crackdowns are far from the only pitfall that comes with Big Tech’s growing power.

And you’ll be spitting mad about this new Apple product’s alarming link to a dangerous criminal trend.

Apple introduced its new AirTag product – an item tracker marketed to help users keep track of easily misplaced items like keys for example – back in April.

Sadly, it isn’t just the forgetful who are among AirTag’s biggest early adopters and reports are flooding the internet that the product is growing to be a favorite for criminals.

Car thieves have been placing the AirTags on high-end cars in public places, tracking the cars to the owners’ residences, then stealing the cars there.

If that weren’t bad enough, people are seemingly using the trackers to stalk unsuspecting prey.

From NBC News:

On Friday night, a woman in an East Coast city left a bar, drove away and soon began receiving alerts on her phone.  “AirTag Found Moving With You,” a notification on her iPhone said. “The location of this AirTag can be seen by the owner.” 

Alarmed that someone could be following her, she began checking her purse, coat pockets and wallet in search of an AirTag, a tracking device made by Apple that went on sale this year. But she couldn’t find anything.  “I didn’t want to go home, so I spent the night somewhere and just said I’d figure it out in the morning,” she wrote later on her Twitter account, which she has since made private. 

The next day, she had someone check her car, and they found an AirTag attached inside a wheel well. 

The AirTag problem shouldn’t come as a surprise as crime is up significantly in blue areas.

For example, Los Angeles has already experienced over 130 follow-home robberies from luxury stores; even liberal residents in Beverly Hills are buying guns to defend themselves against the spate of robberies and the shocking murder of Jacqueline Avant, wife of music producer Clarence Avant.

NBC News continued:

Homing beacons made by other companies have been around for years, but Apple’s product is especially powerful because it uses the company’s network of more than 1 billion devices and its cloud computing service to frequently update the location of an AirTag. 

Several law enforcement agencies around the country have already reported the use of AirTags in criminal activity.

Big Tech surveillance is a growing problem.  Silicon Valley is already deep in bed with governments around the world, with news of them selling out customers’ privacy every time you turn around.

They may never get out of bed with governments but the least these companies could do is find a way to combat the misuse of their products by street criminals.
