MacVoices #21206 : Glenn Fleishman Takes Control of Find My and AirTags (1)

Glenn Fleishman is back to talk about some of the many Take Control books he updated and wrote during the pandemic lockdown. We start out with a review of all the titles, then settle in to Take Control of Find My and AirTags. Glenn explains the three different parts of the Find My service, makes sense of devices and items, and touches on the privacy aspects of tracking all the things Find My can track. Privacy is a big thing in the tracking arena, and Glenn talks about that and why he put a full chapter on the subject in the book. (Part 1)
