Lessons Learned

1. Be aware of the crime trends happening around you. That’s how I already knew about the air tags and that I should call the police right away. 


2. Trust your instincts and act on them.


3. Set your iPhone settings so you can be notified if you are being tracked by an AirTag.  Under settings. Go to privacy insecurity. And toggle location services on scroll to the bottom of that page. Tap on system services and activate find my iPhone. Also search for the, find my app. Visit me in the bottom right corner. Then tap, customized tracking notifications to double-check that notifications are enabled. I did that on my phone and made sure that always is checked. And I have also. Gone to my settings and just turned off all location services.  Also, I did find out that there is a tracker app. Which is called tracker detect. So that’s a good idea for people with the Android phones. And I myself, downloaded. The app tracker detect. So I have that scanner and I can try and scan my car again.
