Apple AirTags and their Android equivalents have been in the news lately, especially as they’ve been used to track down missing luggage. For a businessperson, they can be incredibly useful for keeping track of important belongings, which you can’t afford to lose if you have an important meeting out of town.
All you need to do is pair the tag with your phone and place the tag with your luggage, car keys, wallet or other valuable item. The tag emits a Bluetooth signal that can be detected by an app and shown on a map. The whole process is anonymous and encrypted.
Tags have been used to not only find lost and stolen belongings, but also to keep track of pets, and even by journalists to track where recycled plastics end up. They cost about $50 each.
