The notification showed there was an “apple air tag” in close proximity to him, but Horn doesn’t own a tracker and he couldn’t find one when he started looking for it. He’s concerned people could be tracking his moves with bad intent. “We have a lot of things going on in our lives, I’ve taken some pretty tough political stances on things,” said Horn who owns a public relations firm and has spoken on TV as a political commentator.

When he got home, he noticed a strange notification on his phone. “I went down on the couch, opened up my phone, and received this terrifying notice that claimed someone might see your exact location,” Horn explained. Apple AirTags could be used by stalkers to track down persons and cars. After the game, the notification on his phone also displayed a map that detailed his every move.

Apple will send out a notification if you are being tracked, but it may take a while for you to see it. “You will, after a period of time, receive an alert that says ‘hey, there is a device that’s tracking you.’ Unfortunately, that could be eight to 24 hours,” Urbanovich said. 2 arrested for trying to help Brandon Mall shooting suspect escape, deputies say. He suggests downloading an app to see if you are being tracked. Urbanovich said there are several apps to choose from.

“You could also download a Bluetooth tracker app that will help you locate if there is a Bluetooth tracker in proximity to me,” Urbanovich said. He also suggested taking a moment before discarding a tracker. He said you should be able to find the owner’s I.D. on the device. If you feel threatened, you can report it to local law enforcement and then remove the battery from the device to disable it.
