    Is Your Car a High-Tech Target? Protect yourself against thieves

    hi friends

    Cars with keyless entry systems have made it convenient and quick to unlock a car door from a distance. Unfortunately, criminals have come up with three tricks to quietly open your car door, take everything they can find, and disappear without a trace.

    Re: Is Your Car a High-Tech Target? Protect yourself against thieves

    If you use a wireless key fob with a remote keyless system to open your car, you could be vulnerable to high-tech thieves.When a driver unlocks a car with a remote key fob, the car is communicating to the key by means of a unique radio frequency signal. Power amplifiers boost that signal strength, which makes the car "think" the key is closer than it actually is. In this way, a thief could make the car "talk to" the key fob, even if the fob is sitting on a counter inside the driver’s home.

    There are ways to protect your key fob from being hacked
    1-Store your keys in the microwave. The door of the microwave doesn’t allow radio frequency signals to travel through it.
    2-Park in a garage and if you must park outside, consider disabling your remote key system, and use your car key manually to enter your car.
