Tile Mate

Review Date 10/23/2019

These little doohickies attach to just about anything: your pet, wallet, keys, TV remote, bags, other people’s bags. The app lets you track your things within Bluetooth range and rings where they are if you lose something. There's a waterproof version, a super slim version, a sticker version, and a Pro version to meet any potential "now where did I put that?" need you could possibly have.

What could happen if something went wrong

These remote Bluetooth trackers pose an interesting conundrum. On one hand, they only track within Bluetooth range (200 - 400 feet). On the other hand, the Tile also has a "community find" feature that will let anyone with the Tile app find your Tile and alert your app where it is. This is a good feature...that could also be used for bad purposes. Someone could slip a Tile tracker into your bag or car. And then, with the community find option, use that to track your location without you knowing.
