Are you tired of constantly receiving notifications from your Airtag? Do you find it annoying to be alerted every time your Airtag is detected by someone else’s device?
The good news is, turning off these notifications is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps.
These are simple steps to disable Airtag notifications:
- Unlock your iPhone or iPad.
- Open the “Find My” app. It has a green icon with a radar symbol.
- Tap on the “Items” tab located at the bottom of the screen.
- Tap on the AirTag’s name or icon to access its settings.
- Scroll down to the “Notifications” section.
- Toggle off the switch next to “Notify When Found” to disable notifications for that AirTag.
- If you want to turn off notifications for all your AirTags, there may be a master toggle switch at the top of the “Items” tab or within the “Notifications” section. Check for any such option and toggle it off.
If you want to disable the item safety feature of your AirTag, you can turn off AirTag item safety. This will prevent the AirTag from sending item safety alerts. The alerts are designed to notify you if an unknown AirTag is moving with you over time, ensuring your safety. To manage your AirTag settings, you can launch the Find My app on your iPhone or iPad.
If you want to temporarily pause item safety, you can choose to pause item safety alerts. This will stop the alerts from being sent to your iOS device.
However, it’s important to note that pausing item safety alerts only affects the device you are using, not other devices connected to your Apple ID. If you wish to disable item safety alerts completely, you can do so in the settings of your iOS device.
When an AirTag is detected near your iOS device, it may emit a sound to help you locate it. This feature can be useful if you are trying to find an item like your keys that has an AirTag attached to it. The white side of the AirTag is the top side, which is visible when you look at the front of the AirTag.
Item safety alerts are specifically designed for your iOS device. When enabled, they will provide alerts for your iOS device if an AirTag-tracked item is detected nearby. This feature helps you keep track of your belongings and ensures that you are aware of any potential tracking.
If you see one of the following notifications, it means that someone has marked your AirTag as lost.
In such cases, the owner of the AirTag might be able to see its location indefinitely. This can be helpful for recovering lost items. However, if your AirTag is shared with someone you don’t know or has been shared without your knowledge, it is important to prevent the family sharing group from tracking it. You can adjust the sharing settings in the Find My app to maintain your privacy and prevent unauthorized tracking.
AirTag is a valuable tool to help you keep track of your belongings. Whether it’s your purse, backpack, or other items, attaching an AirTag makes it easy to locate them using the Find My app on your iPhone or iPad. This can discourage borrowing without permission, as the borrower will be aware of the tracking capability.
Please note that the information provided here is based on the features and functionalities of Apple’s AirTag as of its 3rd generation. If you experience any issues connecting your AirTag or using features like precision finding, make sure your devices are updated to the latest software version and follow the troubleshooting steps provided by Apple. Also, it’s important to mention that AirTag does not support NFC (Near Field Communication) capabilities. While NFC-capable smartphones can assist in returning lost items, AirTag primarily relies on the Find My app for tracking and location purposes.
