I know there is an AirTag, iPhone; you don’t need to tell me!
You need to borrow your partner’s car to drive. Fortunately, they have an AirTag on their car keys, so you don’t have to worry about losing them. Instead, you may be worried about your iPhone and warn you that there is a strange AirTag nearby. Of course, you can close the pop-up window that appears on the phone screen, but you may have to do this every time the phone is close to the AirTag.
What’s wrong, Apple?
Don’t be mad; your iPhone is trying to keep you safe
Let’s go back. While Apple’s AirTags are a great way to track things that are often lost, there are obvious security flaws in the discreet tiles that communicate their location to the owner. You don’t want someone to be able to put AirTag in someone’s bag or car so you can quietly track their movements.
Apple fixes this defect by reminding you when you are near an unrecognized AirTag. But when it comes to malfunctions, this can also happen when you are close to the AirTag that you recognize and your iPhone does not.

There is a solution
It turns out that you can solve this problem. Apple has a way to confirm that the AirTag in question is not malicious and you know the person it is attached to. You can even make sure that your iPhone will never warn you about that particular AirTag again.
The trick? AirTag must belong to someone in your home sharing group. Otherwise, the best way is to disable the alert for one day (this is better than receiving repeated alerts throughout the day).
Next time the “Security Alert” page appears on the iPhone, just tap “Continue”. According to Apple, if this belongs to someone in your home sharing group, you should see an option to turn off the “one day” or “indefinite” security alert.
If not, you should see the “Pause Security Alert” option. Click on it to end the security alert for the day and restore at least a little bit of sanity.
