    How to Stop Sharing an AirTag

    If you ever need to revoke a user's access to your shared AirTag, follow these simple steps:

    1. In the 'Find My' app, go to the 'Items' tab and select the shared AirTag.
    2. Under the 'Share This AirTag' section, tap on the name of the contact you want to remove.
    3. A menu will appear at the bottom of the screen. Tap on 'Remove.'
    4. Confirm your action by tapping the 'Stop Sharing' button.

      The person will no longer be able to track the AirTag's location, and they'll be notified if the AirTag is used to track them.

      And there you have it! Sharing AirTags in iOS 17 is a true game-changer, making it easier than ever for groups to keep track of shared items. So, gear up and share the convenience of AirTags with your family and friends!
