AirTag search tips and legal information

Of course, it is very practical if you can search for and find the stolen bike or other lost objects using AirTags. However, you should be careful when getting them back. Not only can you come across unpleasant people who can be convicted of their crimes through the AirTag search. You should also not commit any trespass or trespass to get your bike or anything else back. So if you don't find the bike in the wild, but instead locate it on private property or in a house, then it's better to get the police for help.

Also, it shouldn't need to be mentioned, but I don't want to leave it unmentioned: If you use AirTags on a bike or in other objects to spy on other people, then lightning should strike you. Nothing excuses stalking and tracking or spying on other people. Neither with hardware nor with software (spyware / stalkerware). Leave it alone! If you think that someone might have smuggled in an AirTag while adding bicycle accessories, then take a look at the following posts. Here's how you can find the trackers, if necessary, even without dismantling the bike accessories:
