Why You Should Be Careful With Your Car Keys

Aug 09, 2018
Why You Should Be Careful With Your Car Keys

Our cars have become more and more high tech as we search for the next convenience. A higher proportion of new cars now come with keyless entry and drive. It’s terribly convenient when you have your hands full of shopping and need to open the boot or when your hands are full, and you want to lock your door with the bump of a hip. However, not so convenient when you get your car stolen from outside your house while your keys are still on the kitchen table.

Tech-savvy criminals have developed a genius way of using the signal that your key emits from inside the house, then amplifying that to make your car think you (and your keys) are close enough to open the doors and allow the engine to be started. This can all be done in under 30 seconds and in complete silence (until your engine starts!). So how can you protect yourself from this?

Why You Should Be Careful With Your Car Keys

There is a £6.95 product which could save you thousands in insurance premium hikes, think link below takes you to the Caseflex Car Key Signal Blocker Pouch. This small and discreet case is essentially a Faraday bag which blocks all electrical signals. With your keys in this little pouch they will need to go to a lot more effort to steal your motor. It’s definitely a worthy investment.
