Tracking Tag Security

You’ve likely seen the cool new tracking tag on the block – Apple’s AirTags (which were released less than a month ago). This week’s Naked Security Live video from Sophos Security discusses how safe they are.

Spoiler alert: they’ve already been hacked TWICE.

One of the scenarios the hackers used on the Apple AirTag network sounds like something you would see/read in a spy movie/novel. Crazy!

Anyway, it’s worth a watch …

Bonus video content: he also discusses a recent WhatsApp/instant messenger scam regarding Multifactor Authentication (MFA).

I’ve never purchased a tracking tag or Tile. I just don’t lose “important” things that I would need to put a tracking tag on. I’m very diligent about where I put my keys, glasses, wallet, etc. However, I do lose all sorts of little things; like a cheap notebook stencil I recently lost. But I’m not going to spend $20 on a Tile tag to track a $5 notebook stencil. shrug
