I use an Android smartphone and want to protect myself from being tracked using AirTag tags. How to do it?

We have already talked in detail about Apple’s AirTag tags and how you can follow other people with these gadgets .

Cupertino added a special mechanism for detecting someone else’s tag and notifying about it using the Locator application . Android smartphone users can also find someone else’s tag, but only in manual search mode.

If they are in Lost Mode, you can read the message from the owner. To do this, your smartphone must have an NFC module, to which you need to bring the found label.

As in the case of Apple technology, it is impossible to programmatically disable someone else’s tag, you need to disassemble it and remove the battery.
