An AirTag is usually used for people to attach to their phone or keys if they’re prone to losing them, with the user then having the location of the item on an app called Find My.

This is how Ashley realised that someone had stuck an AirTag to her car, with a sound notification leading them to the licence plate.

"I'm literally shaking right now. Look what I just f—ing found in my car, tucked in!" she said in a TikTok video.

"That is literally how we found out because it told us," she said.

When she looked at the AirTag on the app she said “it pretty much showed us every single location we had been to”.

"It’s super super scary because this is what you see on TikTok. I never thought it would happen to me but it did and I'm scared, I'm paranoid," she said.

"I'm going ahead and contact Apple because it tells me the serial number and the person's phone number, so I'm going to tell them what happened.”

Ashley said she contacted the police but because it was a “non-life-threatening emergency” they recommended she head into the station.

People online were shocked at the discovery, with one person pointing out: ​​”“What’s even scarier is if neither of you had an iPhone, y’all wouldn’t have known.”

“I'm going to investigate my car right now that's so scary," another person commented.

Another person simply wrote: “New fear unlocked”.
