Keyless cars thieves - how they work
Let’s start with the keyless cars because this kind of stealing is still new. The thief may trick the system using a special receiver device as if it was the key that's being presented. If the key fob is not in a safe place, there might be no problem for the thief to catch the radio frequency without physical contact.
It takes two to tango and it usually takes two to steal a car with keyless entry. Thieves do everything in pairs using special devices to catch a signal. One of them stands near the vehicle holding a transmitter, while the other stands near the possible key location. When the signal is caught, it is sent to the transmitter so the thief who stands near the car now can unlock it and activate the ignition. He doesn’t trigger an alarm and is unfortunately able to steal a car without any evidence. Moreover, devices they use could be bought online for less than $100 each. You never know where and when the thief might appear, so make sure your car is protected.
Get yourself a blocking pouch
A blocking pouch is a compact pocket to put your key fob or a smart key. There is a small metal plate that simply blocks the signal, so the thief can't hack your key fob. Someone may think that this is not proper car thief protection. Well, it's not true. Pouches block all kinds of signals (RFID, WIFI, Bluetooth, etc.). These pouches are small, only a bit bigger than your car key, and they easily fit in your suitcase.
Turn off a keyless entry on your fob
That is another method of how to protect keyless entry. Cut off a key fob or a smart key. The thief won't be able to catch the signal remotely cause you made it disappear. The owner`s manual has all the needed information on how to disable a keyless entry. However, even if you won't find this information, you can contact the manufacturer to get more information at this point.
