There’s a warning from the state attorney general about Apple AirTags.

Letitia James is warning New Yorkers about people who use the tags to track locations and belongings.

People have reported finding unknown AirTags attached to their cars, and in their purses, coat pockets and other personal property.

Others have gotten alerts on their phones that their location information is being shared.

James has some tips for New Yorkers:

  • Listen for unfamiliar beeping. When an AirTag is separated from a familiar device for some time, it will beep. If you hear it, try to locate its source.
  • Watch for "item detected near you" notifications on your iPhone.
  • If your iPhone has been close to an unfamiliar AirTag for a period of time, you may receive a notification. Tap that message, and it will allow you to play a sound in order to find it.
