If you want to recognize foreign AirTags with Android, then this will help you tracker detection App from Apple continue. You can find this as a free download in the Google Play Store. The app has been available entirely in German since early 2022. It can also be installed with Android 9 or higher to find an AirTag or multiple AirTags nearby using an Android phone or tablet. This can help, among other things, to help Apple users find their lost belongings. Protection against stalking is more important. The app lets you find Apple AirTags that have been foisted on you for tracking - as physical ones stalkerware.
Anyone using an iPhone or iPad can easily track down Apple AirTags from an external source thanks to the "Where is?" app and the notification function for AirTags that have been around for a long time. Apple has also been thinking about Android users for some time now. So there has been since 2021 tracker detection App for android. This is available in the Google Play Store as a free download.
The ones in English too Tracker Detector called application software helps detect where-is-compatible tracking devices that are moving away from their actual users and that have been around longer. So if you suspect that someone is determining your own position with AirTags or similar trackers, you can carry out a scan. If a stalker AirTags was found, appropriate measures can be taken.
As soon as a strange AirTag has been nearby for ten minutes, you can instruct it to make a noise. This is how you can find it even if it has been hidden in another object. If you e.g. For example, if you buy a bike and suspect that a built-in AirTag might be used to track it down and steal it back, this can be helpful.
But again, the main goal is probably more: deter stalking. In addition to the function for playing a sound, the tracker detection app for Android devices also includes illustrated instructions for removing the AirTag battery to stop tracking directly. The screenshots (unfortunately still in English) on the app page in the Google Play Store show what else the app has to offer.
While some 5-star reviews in the Google Play Store highlight the good usability and reliable work of the software when locating AirTags with the Android smartphone, there are also numerous bad reviews. However, you should read them before relying on them. Because e.g. For example, some of the 1-star reviewers complain that the app cannot be used to set up AirTags on Android phones. Yes, surprise, it's not made for that at all.
There are also complaints that an AirTag was not recognized even though a colleague had been sitting nearby with one for several hours. Again: the app recognizes AirTags that have been 15 to XNUMX minutes away from the person using them. It is not intended to display all "supervised" AirTags in the area. Incorrect expectations are therefore placed on the functions of the program because the description or the texts in the app were not read correctly. If you subtract the corresponding ratings, then what remains is a fairly well-rated software for finding stalker AirTags with the Android device.
