New police approved signal blocking key pouches
03 December 2021
A large number of new cars now have keyless entry as standard, or as an optional extra. Any car that has keyless entry and keyless start is vulnerable to being targeted by thieves.
How are Keyless Cars Stolen?
The vehicle is stolen using a relay attack unit, this is a device that transmits on the same frequency as the car's remote key fob and it is used to capture the signal from your car key, the signal is then copied and sent to another transmitter.
It takes thieves two minutes to carry this out and it is done outside your house, even if the key is inside the house, the tech used by thieves tricks your car into thinking it's nearby enough to unlock.
The transmitter then will function as an additional key, it opens the car, starts it, and then is easily driven away (this will only work if the car also has keyless start as a feature-if the car has a push button start instead of turning the key in the ignition)
