Apple’s new AirTags-detecting Android app can’t automatically tell you if you’ve been bugged


Update (14/12/2021): Apple has finally released an Android app called Tracker Detector, so you can find rouge AirTags around you, even if you don’t have an iPhone or an iPad.

Apple’s Find My network to detect AirTags and compatible devices, but there’s no background scanning. That means you have to manually open the app and scan for AirTags around. Looking at the early user reviews on the Play Store, people are furious.
