Apple’s new Find My feature could let you know if you’re the one being tracked

Apple’s Find My app might get a new safety feature to help prevent someone from using the kinds of devices tracked in the app to stalk you instead. “Item Safety Alerts”, will notify you if an unknown device being tracked on Find My is “moving with you” so you can remove it or disable it.

The feature seems designed to counteract a scenario where a Find My-compatible device is hidden in a pocket or bag and then used to track someone’s movements. The setting is enabled by default in the beta and Apple seems to want it to stay on.
