Small cybersecurity company Berkeley Varitronics Systems (BVS) may soon have a solution to the Apple AirTag stalking problem through its BlueSleuth-Lite detector.

It works by detecting “all major BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) trackers”, including those mentioned above AirTags, Galaxy Smart Tags, plus future devices that support the standard, such as earbuds. If multiple gadgets are detected nearby, the BlueSleuth’s screen (opens in new tab) will list them “according to signal strength” with trackers given the highest priority. Users see the name of the missing item, the business icon, and when it was last detected on the screen. It won’t tell you exactly where to find a tracker, but you should locate suspicious devices by using signal strength as a barometer.
