Caldwell Police Issue Sweeping Warning Over Stalking Concerns
When it comes to advancements in technology, we're all for it. Now more than ever, we have access to just about everything--right in our pockets! One of Apple's latest developments, the "AirTag", has many thinking twice about their surroundings and the use of these powerful devices.
Could an Apple AirTag be turning everyday "Joe" into a stalker? Well, it's possible and the Caldwell Police Department has some things to say about that.
By the way, if you didn't know--the Treasure Valley has a full blown "Most Wanted" list of nine people that authorities desperately want to catch.

Maybe they should be attached to some AirTags, too!?
Rather affordable at just $29 each and devilishly accurate when it comes to locating items--Apple AirTags are beginning to be used for all sorts of things. YouTube videos and TikTok creators have been known to toss these tags in envelopes to track mail in real time. We've actually used them personally in our checked luggage while traveling.
As long as there is an iPhone nearby an AirTag, that AirTag will be pinged and its location will be tracked. This is a much more powerful technology than say, a "Tile" brand tracker because iPhones seems to be everywhere--and this stuff is updating in real time!
While the Caldwell Police Department says they have not received any reports of this to them just yet-- it seems to be something they're anticipating as the trend is only growing nationwide.
Have a crazy ex or a snoopy parent / significant other? Might want to be aware of these handy, yet somewhat stalker-like devices.
