Apple and Google could be about to launch their anti-stalking tracker tech


The Apple AirTags, and similar trackers made by companies such as Tile, do a great job of keeping tabs on where your stuff has got to – but they can also be used to monitor someone’s location without their knowledge. Now, anti-stalking tech developed in partnership by Apple and Google seems to be on the verge of launching.

Seasoned tech tipster Mishaal Rahman (via Android Police) has spotted that a specification for “Detecting Unwanted Location Trackers” has been filed at the Internet Engineering Task Force, or IETF. That’s a sure sign that the spec will soon be arriving.
