Tile now offers $1 QR code stickers as a low-tech way to recover lost items


Tile just released QR Label “Lost and Found” it’s basically a low-tech way to get your content back. The company says they’re used on small or perhaps not particularly valuable items like “travel mugs, musical instruments, sports equipment, and headphone cases.” This is the company’s first new product release since purchase using the Life360 location sharing service.

Unlike Tile trackers that let you see the actual location of an object via Bluetooth, the new stickers are really a fancy version of airport baggage tags. Anyone who finds it can scan the QR code to display your contact information and then (if they’re honest) contact you to return the item.

Tile now offers a $1 QR code sticker that's not a Bluetooth tracker

No need to track or beep to locate your subjects, privacy is less of an issue than it is with Tile trackers or Apple AirTags. That said, you still have the ability to make your contact information public, so you should ensure that the labels never appear in public social media posts. They cost $15 for three five-label sheets, which is a lot cheaper than $25 trackers—but $1 for a sticker still seems like a lot.
