More reporting on AirTag privacy concerns. This one stood out to me because this anecdote is just tossed in without calling this out as - IMO - a privacy violation:

“Mary Ford, a 17-year-old high school student from Cary, N.C., received a notification in late October that she was being tracked by an unknown AirTag after driving to an appointment. She panicked as she searched her car.

Ms. Ford only realized it wasn’t a threat when her mother revealed she had put the tracker in the vehicle about two weeks earlier to follow her daughter’s whereabouts.”
