AirTags - A blessing or a curse? with Dañiel Gerhardt

"We need to talk about AirTags," says Dañiel Gerhardt. The benefits of these small location trackers for finding wallets or keys are undeniable, but too little is known about the risks, says the researcher. According to Gerhardt, the trackers are also a useful tool for stalkers, as the functions built into the AirTags to prevent such misuse are not yet as good as they could be - at least that is the premise for his research on this topic. In the podcast, we talk about how AirTags work, which such "anti-stalking features" already exist and why they often do not provide sufficient protection against misuse. This interview was recorded in German and is now available wherever podcasts are available.
