Threw my Tiles away last week.
Good riddance it seems.
I replaced them with AirTags.
But AirTags are not without their own privacy concerns, such as tagging cars to be stolen later from the owner’s driveway (ref).
Still, I think that Apple is trying to balance privacy while maintaining the ability to track things. There still is room for privacy concerns, even with AirTags. But that is the nature of a tracking device… I do not see a 100% reliable solution there. It is an ongoing struggle to balance privacy and usability.
Not sure that has anything to do with privacy. If someone follows you home that would be the same thing. It’s criminal and dangerous, but I’d not call this in any way related to the article that started this thread.
I hesitated to express my thoughts in their entirety. I will do so now:
EVERY time when a CEO of a company like Life360 goes on the record saying that he does not have plans to sell data from an acquired company I consider that data already as being sold or used for whatever purpose that leads to profits. Follow the money…
