Do you remember when they mentioned the AirTags that never arrived? Apple’s tracking device never quite arrived after all the rumors that were thrown from time to time. There was a desire for AirTags and the main competitors were making money with a device they already owned. No need to lose our keys, our backpack or even our pet. We just had to get some Tiles and take them with everything we didn’t want to lose, of course until the AirTags arrived and Apple made it all easier. And worst of all, now we’ve just found out that Tile not only helps us find our devices, but also sells our location information.
This was precisely one of Apple’s maxims when launching a product like the AirTags: our data was not going to be shared, no one would have access to our locations. But what happened in the case of Tile was that the company was taken over by Life360, a company that allowed us to locate our whole family using their devices, it took over Tile and it looks like they kept taking it … yes they say they did. they do it anonymously, but Markup
A very dangerous practice. They offer a service to help us locate whatever we want, but in the end they offer it to us like a Trojan horse. to continue to sell this data to third parties because this data is now a very precious asset. So now you know, if you are planning to buy a Tile or AirTag type tracking device, opt for the apple version. Knowing the policies of Cupertino, we doubt that they are involved in practices similar to those of Life360 with Tile.
