Sorry, but nRF connect shows a whole bunch of BT around me, some of which AirGuard claims to scan for (FindMyDevice, etc.). The same I can see directly from the BT menu but your app shows really NOTHING at all, even on manual scan, in foreground. P.S. location was enabled, course.

In the instructions it says don't move to a safe location. The first thing I would recommend is moving to a safe location someplace well lit, police station, gas station, don't stay in the parking lot that you were tagged in that would be a bad idea.

It's okay. I HATE how it randomly pops up on my phone when I'm on Facebook or any other apps, on the phone. It's the purple air guard background that pops up and i have to press out of it. .

It seems to require the ability to track your location all the time, not only when the app is not in use. I cannot even get past the setup procedure to try this out without allowing this permission. I get that constant tracking may improve the app's ability to judge your location, but I'd prefer to make that judgement on a case by case basis. Anyone see the irony with installing an app that *needs* to track you 24/7 just to check for nefarious AirTags that *might* be tracking you, maybe?

Good idea, not sure if it really works though. I get tons of notifications telling me I have some airpods and a tile following me. I don't own either of these items, and I can never seem to actually track them down with the app. I will change my review to 5 stars if I get robbed ,kidnapped, or find my stalker.

Checks for AirTag and Tile only. As for others saying you can't turn it off, I just turn off my Bluetooth and location on my phone and swipe the app away. 👍

This app works awesome it tracked a stalker who was parked across the street from our hotel and showed him come from there to our hotel 13 times. I use it 6 times a day n night

The app is insightful & useful. But I have to uninstall app until developers make changes. It needs option to turn off scanning when desired. Add a button for "on/off" or an option to "diasable automatic scanning". It was of interest seeing an apple device follow me & child to several stores & within a store. I am skilled at pattern recognition & was uncomfortable with all that I learned from the scanning data. I wont mention it so not to teach the wrong people how the app should not be used.

Did a manual scan. Bluetooth on. Next to a customer's air tag. Came up with nothing detected. Uninstalled. There's no point to this app taking up space and power if it's not going to detect anything?

Seems to work pretty well for detecting both airtags and tiles. Butt i can't find any way to turn it off! I don't want it running all time. Is there any way to do that? The only way i found was too reboot my phone. If you could add that it would be 5 stars! I work with security teams who are looking for an app like this but we need to be able to turn it off.

Works just like the app says it will. It took a little while though, like a day, but it detected an Apple Air tag 5 that was hid in my car. Fortunately the app allowed me the capability of playing a sound from within it and locating it.

No way to play sound on detected tracker. It's not that the button doesn't work. There is no Play Sound button at all.

I like the concept! I installed the app and dug through the source code. The biggest weakness of this app is the location data quality is poor. It looks like location comes from the GPS or network, whatever is fastest, but not whichever is most accurate. Bluetooth tracking is in the range of tens of meters which needs high accuracy to work, so the idea doesn't work, unless you get lucky and get good location data.

I got a notification for a tracker, but I can't click on it to see the info or play the sound or anything like that. All I can see is the map with the locations.

Alerted me when my sister lent me her air tag. I could even make noise to find it when it was dropped in my car in the dark.

Good idea, doesn't work. I don't thinks the devs are malicious, but any safety tool that does not work is more dangerous than not having it at all. Showing last scan 3 days ago which is not frequent enough to even be adequate. Manual scan right now shows a bunch of tags nearby, app won't save any scans at all which invalidates the app entirely.

App detects apple, and tile, but no smartag+. Would be nice for a reset, to clear scans, so one can count the actual tags we bought before, so we can ignore our own tags. Ignored tags keep getting counted, its supose to be ignored.

The app says a tile has been following me for the last 2 weeks but i cant make a sound to find it!! Will this be added in an update?

Seems to work well after the recent update, it started alerting me about my own Tile device following me, and in the logs it showed AirTags it picked up around me while I was running an errand. However I wish that ignoring a tracker that you know is yours would remove it from the "risk" list, as opening the app today greeted me with a "High risk" alert because of my Tile.

Freezes or does not advance past asking for location permissions upon start up. I will update in the future if I ever get it to work, but for now... completely useless.

This app was working great but then all of a sudden on March 21 stopped detecting anything. Update: manual scan seems to work for the most part but not the background scan. I have 4 airtags that i use with my iPad only at home and use only an android phone daily. i keep one airtag in my car and one on my keys. Normally by the time i drive to work (45min) i can see the warning from my commute from the 2 airtags with me and by the end of the day i receive another warning showing me being tracked at work. I noticed all tracking warnings and background scanning stopped on March 21st. i have turned off my ipad (my only apple device) and will keep it off for a few days to see if i get anymore warnings. Update 19-Apr-22: app doesn't seem to perform background scan unless you open the app, manual scans seem to work.

Tries to demand bluetooth on constantly, WITH BLUETOOTH ON, won't work for manual scan if you want to turn it on and off yourself to not keep bluetooth on always. Says it's doing a background scan and won't let me do a manual scan, but isn't doing anything. Worthless. (had to edit bc developer can't read and tried to claim I don't grasp what bluetooth does. App does not work, period.)

It stopped scanning in background. Then there's a detected device when I reinstalled, but literally miles away. Am I hacked or a bug? OnePlus 9Pro

Does not detect anything. Have airtag and smart tag in hand yet it will not detect them.. ( 3rd party owned tag is not connected to a local phone. Other apps can detect them nearby)

Updated to 5 stars. This has detected a few different scenarios that were done on purpose (car, bag, pet tag). It takes a little while, but it does need to determine patterns. It was able to find and detect more than just apple which was nice to see. Thanks all for the work. Hopefully this will make it into android OS by default. --------- Installed finally after waiting a long while. I'll update again if it ever notifies me of the tag that I put in my car that's tied to a buddies iPhone.

The purpose of this app is amazing . There needs to be clear cut instructions and explanations on settings and the terminology thats used. I had to google about 10 different questions that shouldve been in FAQs . Its confusing. There needs a detailed explanation on each notification u recieve.

This app opens constantly over other apps while I'm using them... texts, messenger, YouTube. I was finally forced to uninstall.

The app just works. My partner got rid of his iPhone and suddenly all his AirTags consistently triggered the app while we were traveling. I suspect the UI is giving people trust issues it will notify you of a rare occurrence. My suggestion, forget the UI. Just install the app and let it do it's job.

Using a P5 on A12. Works as expected; stable. Don't really know why people are complaining about the UI, seems intuitive enough to me. Minimal background battery usage. Have subsequently deleted Apple's Tracker Detect. Nice to see the devs adding Tile support. Would like to see added support for ATM skimmer detection, since the app focus is on privacy/ security, and already uses BTLE.

It really doesnt work as advertised. Ive had the app running in the back ground the last few weeks it wont find an airtag that we know is there. We have given eveey permission the app has askes for.

Haven't found any services which I guess is a good thing! I have to agree with another review on here though, the low energy Bluetooth scanning option is very confusing with its wording. Should it be on or off?

I click on the manual button and nothing shows. How does this even work? It does not show the status or anything. How do I know it's even scanning ?

Physically found an airtag but the app never discovered it, never made it play a sound, and the app says it may have been a false alarm. Nope. I have the unknown airtag in my hand.

Does away with worries of a tracker. It's unclear if using the low energy Bluetooth setting is better or worse. Wording is confusing. This is the wording in app. Should i enable it or disable it? "Use Low Energy Scan If enabled, Bluetooth Low Energy scanning will be used to discover nearby AirTags! WARNING: Without this option, some devices might not be discovered!"

App does not take into account plane rides, but seems to work great otherwise 😁👍 I'm not sure if it already exists, didn't check, but it'd be nice if it was possible to set the length of time a airtag has to be around you for a notification warning

"Make sure that you don't move to a safe place..." Shouldn't that "don't" be taken out of there? That seems like bad advice.

Straight from boot it say nothing found in 14 days after scanning it failed to locate 3 tags 15 ft from me

You say that when NOT using LOW ENERGY SCAN ("without this option") some devices might not be discovered. I guess you mean exactly the opposite, don't you ? So "without this option" should be "with this option".

The app apple should have made! This app allows to you scan manually for nearby iDevices/airtags just like the apple version. It also scans in the background without draining your battery. It shows the results of "ignored" or not malicious devices and where they were last seen!

Do not download this app once you download it 3 days after you're gonna start getting spam calls asking a if I wanna sell vehicle I said how did you get my number or my location they said the air guard app tracked My location and my phone number 🤔 Today is Friday February 11th at 9:55 Ami will not Never download this app again

The dev has literally cut and paste the same response to my second "review". The app does not work correctly on a P6P. I purchased brand new air tags, paired them to a device, shut off all Apple devices in my household and the app never notified of a tracker. Even if I take the tag with me when leaving. I can do a manual scan and find the tag. The new UI leaves a lot to be desired, it's hiding way too much information. Dev states it's better, that it's less "scary" - it's less useful.

Used to work really well and the last update messed it up. No longer receive any notifications. As a matter of fact it tells me that it's been 14 days since a tracker has been found... Even though I know for a fact it should have gone off... New layout also sucks

This app tracks every apple product that has the find my app. I live with 3 iphone users and when they leave and come back i get a notification, the actual location isn't precise, but it is pretty neat that this app defys Apples privacy policy.

Constantly jumps to front when using other apps, obscuring the screen. Doesn't seem to function well with location permission restricted. I only want to turn location on if an unrecognized tag/bt device is regularly detected close to my phone. Otherwise, AirGuard should not need my location info. It should only ask AFTER such a detection.

Hi, this app was working. Until the Jan 3 22 update. I am looking at aApple device, that this app "hit" before the update. Many times, many days. I'm aware of a follower. Now I even run manual scan, and the app found it, on the screen only, but did not log the hit. Did not even put it on the ignore list. I can see the Apple device, with my own eyes, and it's powered up. Now what?

This app confuses me. It tells me I have many many many devices tracking me but none of them are able to make sound. I tried using another app that does the same thing and it found nothing tracking me. It seems this app has a lot of false positives!

Great First Start. Some things that might improve the app 1. Allow at a minimum the ability to copy the mac address from the app or even grab mac address lookup details automatically in the app and display MAC vendor details 2. Layout of the time of first discovery and last seems cramped with information missing. Thanks

It says there's no suspicious devices, but it shows 5 devices which have tracked my location. When I look at the list if detected devices (like 25 in two days) most of them were from my office (which is shared with the police station, so I'm not overly worried about my car). I'm guessing they're people's personal devices that I happen to move near. I also see in the comments people saying that airguard tracks your location. Wish it would tell me when it is. I'll be deleting now.

Worthless. All it did was keep reporting my own phone as a tracking device. So I would set it to ignore the "device" but you have to do that EVERY day since the Bluetooth addresses rotate daily and that gets tedious. Little to no value in this paranoia pacifier.... pure theater, no substance.

READ THE INFO PROVIDED BY DEVELOPER TO UNDERSTAND HOW APP WORKS!!! This app is designed to NOTIFY you if the devices it's catching have been picked up in multiple places you've been. If you see many "find my device", this does not immediately mean you're being tracked... The app will tell you if it's noticing that these devices it's detecting are following you. To the creators: I think you should include a "how it works" section IN the app, people seem confused about the layout.

I'm have a notification of a tag tracking me but can't find an airtag. I have a Samsung smart tag. Does this app pick up Samsung smart tags as well or should I keep looking for this airtag?

Dec 6, 2021
No. It has given me dozens of notifications "Find My Device" and many notices such as "Airtag 441" "Airtag 442" etc. When I click on it, it gives me a map that shows I am indeed being tracked. When I click on the Airtag location icon on the map,it gives me different serial numbers for each Airtag notice I click. Apple tech support says its AIRGUARD tracking me and its picking up other people's Airtags. Wasted $200 and 2 days at hotel instead of moving on, police report, etc. for nothing. Bad app

Don't know how it works really, I get the concept but don't know how it works. I do know im not too worried about being tracked personally 😏 cause i got a few pew pew at home and on me at all times protecting me and my family and also the road I live on too, like the people thst live on it i mean.

So far it's detected a airtag on my vehicle, which I am taking to someone to search for. I wish it wouldn't pick up apple tablets, phones and such. But I would really like if we could get more explaination on what the tracker means, how long it's been tracking like to which locations, and gave me better details on the map. Also when I was hitting the button to make the airtag make a sound it wasn't working. Please keep working on this app to improve, we need this safe technology.

Maybe it's because I don't know the 1st thing about airtags, but I have no idea how to use this app! I got an alert today of a tracker found but I don't understand all these numbers on the results, the map doesn't always come up. I'm lost! An explanation in the app would be nice.

Did exactly what it was supposed to do!!! I used this app today to locate the air tag my ex put in my car to track me.🤬 The only thing I wish the tracking sound was longer and a manual to explain some of the functions. I would suggest all females with a samsung download this app, especially single females.
