Brooks Nader is seen leaving the 6th Police Precinct after finding an Apple AirTag tracker on her

Sports Illustrated model Brooks Nader was seen leaving the 6th Precinct station in New York City on Saturday, just days after finding an Apple AirTag tracker in her clothing.

Nader, 26, was seen wearing a bright green puffer jacket as she left the Greenwich Village police station with her husband, Billy Haire, after allegedly finding the tracking device in her jacket pocket on Wednesday.

The model said she was at the Odeon bar in Tribeca when she suspected the Apple AirTag had slipped into her jacket, but didn’t notice.

The high-tech, low-cost device can be used by stalkers to track down potential victims.

It wasn’t until five hours later, after Nader had left the bar to meet some girlfriends at another tavern, and walked home alone around midnight, that she was notified by Apple’s security app that she might be carrying a tracking device.

“My coat was actually on the bar stool at the Odeon in Tribeca, which was my first location,” she told DailyMail.com on Friday.

“I went to the bathroom and left my coat on the chair and then I thought someone had thrown it in. They followed me all the way home for five hours.’

Apple has a security feature attached to the tags that notifies a person of an “unknown accessory” traveling with them. It is not known why it took several hours for Nader to receive the notification.

Nader was never confronted by her potential stalker and was able to get home safely. Now she is warning other women to “watch your belongings” and “pay attention to the notification.”

She now warns others to be aware of their location and 'watch out for the alert'.  Nader is not the first woman to have been tracked with the device or similar device and women may have reported knowing nothing about the device until notified by Apple

She didn’t realize until hours later – after receiving a notification stating that an unknown item “has been moving with her for a while” and that “the owner could see the location”

“The only silver lining is that I actually got a notification that someone was following me,” she said in an Instagram video.

“It was the scariest moment ever. I just want people to be aware that this exists,” she said.

“I never thought something like this could happen to me and it did. If this happens to you and you find an AirTag, immediately call the police and Apple to trace the serial number back to the perpetrator,” she told DailyMail.com.

“As women, we need to stick together and warn each other about situations like this.”

Nader isn’t the first woman to be followed with products like Apple’s AirTag or the Tile trackers. Trackers like these are usually small in size and slim, and can easily be hidden from an unsuspecting person.

Customers can attach them to almost anything and using the app, users can see where the item is at all times.

The devices can pinpoint exact locations and are constantly updated with near-accurate precision. The relatively inexperienced items — Apple’s AirTag costs $29.99 — make it easy to stalk someone.

Recently, the West Seneca Police Department in New York City reported two separate incidents involving AirTags, prompting the police to make a public announcement to raise awareness.

Women across the country and in Canada have reported similar cases.

A Maryland woman found an AirTag on her car at a bar early in the morning, a Texas woman found one in her purse and a Mississippi woman had to alert police after receiving a report of an AirTag.

However, Apple has made sure to take customer safety seriously.

“We take customer security very seriously and are committed to AirTag’s privacy and security,” an Apple spokesperson told the New York Post.

AirTag is designed with a suite of proactive features – an industry first – and the Find My network includes a smart, tunable deterrent system that applies to AirTag, as well as third-party products as part of the Find My network accessory program. .’

Apple also released Tracker Detect for Android users in December, allowing users to detect unwanted tags on any phone.

The Tracking Device Social Media Users Claim Can Help With Stalking: What’s an Apple AirTag?

AirTag is equipped with Bluetooth connectivity to pair with an iPhone or iPad. It can be attached to non-technical items such as keys or wallets and provides notifications when separated from the item.

Shared in a video with TikTokshowed the 24-year-old viewers an AirTag that read, “I’m literally shaking – look what I just found on my car.”

In a separate video, she explained: “I was hanging out with my cousin’s girlfriend, and before you know it, she gets a notification on her phone, and that’s how we found out, because it told us.

“It says first seen at 7:34, so they put it on my car. Then it said “Play sound,” which we did…and that’s how we could detect where it was on my car.”

Last year, it was revealed that thieves were using Apple AirTags to track down high-end vehicles.

Police in the York area of ​​Ontario, Canada, have recorded at least five incidents within weeks where the devices had been used to track cars.

Days after the gadget’s release, a German security researcher by the name of Stack Smashing revealed that he was able to hack into one of the devices.

The IT researcher said he was able to “dump the firmware and some key areas,” essentially tweaking the device’s tracking software.
