When Apple released AirTags, they positioned them as a way to keep track of their belongings. However, key rings soon began to be used to spy on people.
As a result, the Ohio House of Representatives has reportedly introduced a bill that would criminalize AirTags harassment.
A bill to criminalize the use of key fobs to track people without their permission has been introduced in the Ohio House of Representatives.
This will prevent someone from
“knowingly placing a tracking device or app on another person’s belongings without their consent.”
The bill is partly driven by loopholes in Ohio law that could potentially allow AirTag tracking in cases where there has been no prior history of stalking or domestic violence.
Ohio isn’t the only state to recently take action on AirTag. In January, Pennsylvania proposed legislation to make tagging a punishable act.
