AirGuard is an open-source app that tries to detect and warn the user about unknown AirTags and Tile trackers that may tracking them.
In order to do this passively in the background, it requires Bluetooth to be left on all the time, and for the app to have access to location all the time. This feels invasive, but it appears necessary to get the app to do what it's indented to do.
To keep the app from sending my location data somewhere, I disabled its Network permission. Being nervous about leaving Bluetooth on 24-7, I also verified that my device is not Bluetooth discoverable unless it's on the "Pair new device" screen in Settings.
By using AirGuard in this way, are there any privacy or security implications I'm overlooking?
