Sports Illustrated Model: Man followed her home hiding AppleTag in her jacket

A woman found herself in a terrifying situation when she noticed she was being stalked – after someone planted an Apple AirTag in her coat’s pocket.

Brooks Nader (Sports Illustrated model) shared the story and called the incident “the incident”. ‘scariest moment’She is the love of her life.

Nader was in Tribeca, New York when a stranger added a tracking device on her clothing. Apple AirTag allows users monitor and track the location of Apple products within close proximity to the tag.

“Stupidly, I was walking home alone because I live in the neighborhood around 11:30 pm. Once I was already on my way home—halfway home—I got a notification,”Nader said.

Only as she was on her solo home walk, did she realize that someone was following her. She received a notification on the phone which alerted her. The notification was triggered by the detection of the device.

‘I never share stuff like this but what the f*** does this mean?’She asked her Instagram followers to share a screenshot of the notification that she received and also shared it with them on her Instagram Story. ‘This ‘device’I was followed for 5 hours to each location. There was no one in my vicinity. ‘network’.’

Nader later confirmed the AirTag didn’t belong to anyone she knew, telling MailOnline, “Basically, my coat was on the barstool at the Odeon in TriBeCa, which was my first location. I went to bathroom [and] left my coat on the chair and that’s when I think someone slipped it in. They then followed me for five hours all the way home.”

“@Apple, did you take into consideration the danger and potentially fatal consequences this device has? Ladies, check your bag, coat, pockets and surroundings. Disturbed isn’t even the word.”

On Apple’s website, the brand shared that the purpose of the device is as a “supereasy way to keep track of your stuff.”

It reads: “Attach one to your keys, slip another in your backpack. And just like that, they’re on your radar in the Find My app, where you can also track down your Apple devices and keep up with friends and family.”

How to avoid any “unwanted tracking”Site reads: “AirTag is designed to discourage unwanted tracking. If someone else’s AirTag finds its way into your stuff, your iPhone will notice it’s traveling with you and send you an alert. After a while, if you still haven’t found it, the AirTag will start playing a sound to let you know it’s there.”
