In this regard, it is worth remembering that at the beginning of the year, Tile launched Scan and Secure, so that users can know if they were being followed through an object tracker and act accordingly, a function that has been quite successful.

An alternative with its pros and cons

The alternative is the new Lost and Found stickers, which have QR codes printed on them, and which owners of the objects must stick to themas long as they have flat surfaces, and register them later in the Tile mobile app.

In this sense, if a user finds a lost object with a sticker that shows the Tile QR code, it will be enough to scan said code with their mobile device to be able to know the contact information of the owner who has lost it.

At this point, it is interesting to know that Tile will allow the owner to choose the method of contact they want, including the use of an alternative email address to the usual email account, or even an alternative phone number, either from Google Voice, or even from other number providers. secondary, like the new Firefox Relay disposable phone numbers that just arrived, for example.
