Losing things like your wallet or your car keys is frustrating, especially if you are in a hurry. That is why Bluetooth trackers are in demand these days since they are a great help in finding lost items easier and faster.
Many users prefer the Tile Bluetooth Tracker because of its simplicity of use. The device has been around for some time even before Samsung SmartTag and Apple AirTag came out. You can use different Tile trackers like the Tile Pro, Tile Slim, Tile Sticker, and Tile Mate. What makes Tile Bluetooth trackers good is its capacity to capture the Bluetooth connection of a nearby device to update the app of its location even when your phone is miles away.
A Tile tracker uses only the Bluetooth connection of devices within its range. It means that it cannot update the app of its location if no phone running with the Tile app is nearby. However, it will connect anonymously and without compromising your privacy.
Now, you may consider giving your Tile Bluetooth tracker to a friend, family member or someone else. It can be a gift or a donation. You may also sell it to another person for an upgrade. Whatever is your reason, it is best to factory reset or deactivate and delete your Tile Bluetooth tracker from your account to facilitate transfer to your recipient smoothly. The new owners can freshly set it up for their own use and get rid of Tile setup errors like the dreaded “Previously Activated” issue.
