Unwanted Tracker Detection: Many Bluetooth trackers are available in the market. These are used to track things. However, many such cases have come to light in which people are tracked with the help of these trackers. In such a situation, Google and Apple have joined hands, so that users can easily get information about unknown trackers. Let us know its details.
Apple AirTag was created by the company to track things, but it has been seen many times that it is misused. People start using it as a Bluetooth tracker. The job of AirTag and other similar products is to track things. Many people forget their belongings here and there.
In such a situation, these trackers help the users in finding their belongings. When it started being misused, Apple added a new feature to its phones. With the help of this feature, you can find out whether any unknown AirTag is traveling with you. That means no tracker is tracking you.
Google had announced in the developers conference
However, it is difficult to replicate this in Android phones. Android phones cannot detect any third party tracker as easily as the iPhone can. In Google I/O 2023, the company had announced that it is working on this in collaboration with Apple.
With its help, you will get information about unwanted Bluetooth trackers. No matter which company the tracker is from, information about it will be available on the phone. This can be done with the help of broad industry standards, which are used by both Android and iOS. Samsung, Tile, Chipolo, eufy Security and other tracker makers are also involved in this work.
Feature may be launched soon
For this, users will not need any extra app. However, since the announcement, progress in this matter has been very slow. Google has gone ahead and launched a method with the help of which unwanted trackers can be detected. However, it is based on custom salon. We may get to see this feature soon.
Mishaal Rahman has spotted the first version of Detecting Unwanted Location Trackers. This specification is available on IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force). Apple was waiting for this feature for a long time. It is expected that companies can release this feature soon.
