Can stolen AirTags be reset?

Share on

When you set up an AirTag, it becomes associated with your Apple ID. It can then not be used by others unless you reset it.

To reset it, remove it from your Apple ID:

  • Open “Find My app”

  • Tap the AirTag you want to remove from the list

  • Swipe up and bring up all the AirTag settings

  • Press “Remove Item”

  • Press “Remove”

Once you have gone through the process, your ownership of AirTagen ceases and someone else can configure and use it.

 

Manual reset
If you are not within the Bluetooth range of the tag when you remove it from the account, the tag will not detect that it is free and frank. Manual reset is then required. If you have an AirTag that has been removed from someone else's account but still identifies itself to that person, follow these steps for manual reset:

 

  • Push down the AirTag backrest

  • Rotate your back counterclockwise

  • Pull the halves apart

  • Remove the battery

  • Replace the battery

  • Press down on the battery until the tag makes a sound

  • When the sound stops, repeat the process four more times; remove and insert the battery, press the battery until you hear a sound

You must hear the sound five times to ensure that the AirTagen is reset.

 

When you are done, put the cover with the tabs against the grooves on the tag. Press the cover until you hear a sound, rotate the cover clockwise until it locks in place.

To avoid the reset process, the person you get it from must remove it from the Apple ID while it is in Bluetooth range.

 

What about stolen or found AirTags?
You can physically reset them, but as far as we have cleared - and that without making us a thief in the spirit of public education - the owner will still find them if he has not removed them from his Apple ID.

 

An alternative could be to steal the phone along with the tag, but of course, it requires gangster craftsmanship of the noblest class - which I do not doubt that my esteemed readers possess considering how hard they can be in the comments section.
