it is inevitable that items—such as keys, wallets, purses, and bags—may be lost or misplaced. To help prevent this, users can attach tracking devices to everyday items and connect them to a smart device via Bluetooth. Then, if items are lost or misplaced, users can use an app to search for them and determine their location with impressive accuracy. If the tracking devices are within Bluetooth range, the app can easily trigger an audible alert to help locate them. If the tracking devices are not within range, the app leverages nearby smart devices to transmit their location and send alert notifications to the owner and/or finder. There are multiple Bluetooth tracking devices to choose from, such as Apple AirTags and Tile tracker tags. Although their use can be a positive, legitimate, and convenient way to keep track of items, tracking devices have the potential for intentional misuse and abuse. We explore how perpetrators may use these tracking devices for nefarious purposes—committing malicious cyber activity, impacting personal safety, and enabling auto theft.
