In this tutorial, we will walk you through the process of connecting an Airtag to an Android device. Airtags are small Bluetooth tracking devices developed by Apple that can be attached to items such as keys, wallets, or bags. They work in conjunction with the Find My app on iOS devices, but with a little workaround, it is also possible to use them with Android phones.

Requirements:

To connect an Airtag to your Android device, you will need the following:

  • An Airtag
  • An Android device running on Android 6.0 or later
  • The “Find My” app installed on your Android device
  • A stable internet connection

Step 1: Prepare Your Airtag

Before connecting your Airtag to your Android phone, make sure it is ready for pairing. To do this:

  1. Remove the plastic tab from your Airtag to activate it.
  2. Place the Airtag near your Android device.

Step 2: Install and Set Up the “Find My” App

To connect an Airtag to your Android phone, you will need to install and set up the “Find My” app. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Google Play Store on your Android device.
  2. Search for “Find My” and tap on the official “Find My – Bluetooth Tracker” app developed by Apple Inc.
  3. Tap on “Install” and wait for the app to download and install on your device.
  4. Open the “Find My” app and sign in with your Apple ID. If you don’t have an Apple ID, create one.
  5. Grant the necessary permissions for the app to access your device’s location and Bluetooth.

Step 3: Connect Your Airtag

Now that you have the “Find My” app set up on your Android device, it’s time to connect your Airtag. Follow these steps:

  1. Launch the “Find My” app on your Android device.
  2. Tap on the “Items” tab at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap on the “+” icon in the top right corner of the screen to add a new item.
  4. Select “AirTag” from the list of available devices.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the pairing process. This may involve bringing your Airtag closer to your Android device or pressing a button on your Airtag to enable pairing mode.

Step 4: Customize Your Airtag Settings (Optional)

Once your Airtag is successfully connected to your Android phone, you can customize its settings within the “Find My” app. Here are some customization options:

  • Name: Give your Airtag a unique name for easy identification.
  • Safety Alerts: Enable or disable safety alerts for when you leave an item with an Airtag behind.

In Conclusion

Congratulations! You have successfully connected an Airtag to your Android device using the “Find My” app.

Now you can easily track your valuable items using your Android phone. Remember to keep the “Find My” app running in the background for accurate location updates.

Note: Although Airtags are compatible with Android devices, some features may be limited compared to their functionality on iOS devices.
