Going Viral: Apple Sued Over AirTag Stalking

Apple Inc. was sued by two women who say its AirTag devices make it easy for stalkers to track and terrorize victims.

The inexpensive devices, about the size of a half-dollar coin, are intended to be slipped into or attached to personal possessions, like backpacks or keys, to help owners locate them. But privacy advocates have warned — and police reports have verified — that AirTags can also be used to track people without consent.
