Apple has released an updated safety guide for AirTags amid ongoing concerns over the company’s AirTag devices
Apple has released a new safety portal targeted towards users of AirTags.
Apple’s new Personal User Safety Guide offers advice on how people can keep themselves and their data safe.
AirTags are designed to locate lost items using Apple’s powerful ‘Find My’ network
They are small button-shaped items that can be attached to keys or a wallet.
However and other outlets have previously found evidence that AirTags have been misused to track people.
Apple’s new Personal User Safety Guide offers support for people who are “concerned about or experiencing technology-enabled abuse, stalking or harassment”
The guide says it offers “step-by-step” instructions on how users can protect themselves.
Its AirTags section shows users what to do if they are alerted to an unwanted AirTag – a notification that appears on the screen of an iPhone.
The new guide also highlights what to do if you hear or find an AirTag that doesn’t belong to you.
The guide shows Android users how they can download an app that will help alert users to rogue AirTags.

Samsung penalised for misleading Galaxy phone users
Samsung Electronics Australia will pay $14 million after admitting that it misled customers about its phone’s waterproof capabilities
The false or misleading claims were made about the water resistance of several phones, including the S7, S7 Edge, and Note 8 Samsung Galaxy phones.
It’s understood there were more than 3.1 million of these Galaxy phones sold in Australia.
The company says if the phones were submerged in pool or sea water there was chance of the charging port being corroded and stop working if the phone was charged while still wet.
“The phones would display a warning message to discourage consumers from attempting to charge the phones while water was in the charging port,” the company said.
Australia’s consumer watchdog says they reviewed hundreds of complaints from customers who experienced issues with their Galaxy phones.
“The case only relates to a prospect of corrosion of the charging port (if charged while pool or
sea water remained in the charging port), and only following submersion in pool or sea
water. It does not relate to water resistance generally,” the company explained.
Affected customers are urged to contact Samsung.
Netflix laying off 150 employees amid low revenue and subscriber loss
Netflix is set to implement new cost cutting measures citing the low revenue growth
The largest streaming platform is laying off 150 staffers across the company with most of the cuts focused on the US office.
The layoff represents nearly 2% of the company’s total workforce of 11,000 employees.
One of Netflix’s representatives, while talking about the layoff, told CNBC
These changes are primarily driven by business needs rather than individual performance, which makes them especially tough as none of us want to say goodbye to such great colleagues.
This comes less than a month after the company recorded a fall in the number of subscribers.
Netflix shares have gone down significantly since January and the forecast shows further subscriber loss in the next quarter.
The company likely plans to introduce ads to the service or any one of its tiers after being ad free for years.
There might also be actions to prevent password sharing or charging users for doing so.
