Apple Tracker Detect app is designed to help Android users detect any AirTags that may have been placed on them or their vehicles in order to track their location. Apple Tracker Detect, a new app for Android, is now available.
Apple Tracker Detect searches for lost or misplaced item trackers that are connected with Apple’s Find My network. AirTag and related devices from other firms are among these item trackers. If anyone believe someone is tracking the location with AirTag or another device, simply can scan to see if they are.

- On the phone, download a Bluetooth scanning app.
- Check out the local devices using the Bluetooth scanner.
- Look for an unknown device and examine its specifications.
- Look for an entry that reads Apple, Inc. or displays the Apple logo in the unnamed device’s manufacturer specific data.
- Move around in the same general area while keeping an eye on the signal strength of the gadget that think might be an AirTag.

What Is AirTag?
Apple’s little Bluetooth tracking device is known as AirTag. Such tiny trackers can be hidden in or attached to personal things like keys, purses, and wallets.
If anyone misplace something like an AirTag, anyone can use the Find My app on any iPhone or iPad to monitor and retrieve it.
Do Apple AirTags Work With Android?
Although AirTags depend on Apple’s U1 chip for complete functionality, they vary from those other Bluetooth trackers like Tile.
In iPhones without the U1 chip, functionality is limited, and it’s even more so in non-Apple devices. AirTags require the Find My app, which is only compatible with Apple devices, so people will need an iPhone, iPad, or Mac to utilise them.
Because both of these functions require the Find My app, people will also need an iPhone, iPad, or Mac to place AirTags into Lost Mode or locate them on a map.
How To Use AirTags With Android?
There’s not much anyone can do with AirTags and an Android phone because the Find My app isn’t available. There isn’t even an official option to use an Android phone to search for a misplaced AirTag.
If one have a Mac, then can see the lost AirTag on a map, but unless they already have an iPhone, then won’t be able to narrow down the location of the AirTag once they are in its vicinity.
Installing a Bluetooth scanner on the Android phone provides a workaround, but it’s not ideal.
One can also use AirTags with Android to scan a lost AirTag if they happen to come across one. This isn’t as extensive as it would be on an iPhone, but it does allow one to view the phone number or message that the AirTag owner typed when they put their AirTag into Lost Mode, which may help people to find the AirTag and its associated item.
How Do One Use AirTags?
To utilise Apple AirTags, first log in to the Apple account and put them up on another Apple device. Place the AirTag near the phone or computer, then click Connect, then identify what one will be tracking, then confirm the contact information, then pick Done when the setup is complete.
