RFID Protection Car Key Holder - Signal Blocker Bag
Keyless car theft – how does it work?
Owners of such vehicles just need their keys on their person or in their bag for the car to start automatically.
Hackers can carry out "relay attacks" using relay boxes – one near the car and the other near where the keys are kept – to lengthen the signal produced by the car key.
This fools the car into thinking the key is close by. Thieves can then open and start the car, and drive it away.
The German General Automatic Club (ADAC) carried out tests on 237 models and 230 could be easily unlocked and stolen in this way.
✯ Don't assume that wrapping your key in foil will do a good enough job.
✯ As keyless car crime has spiked, several anti-theft pouches have hit the market that is designed to block signals emitted by the key.
How can you protect your pride and joy against relay theft?
✔ The idea is simple - keep your key inside the Faraday pouch when not in use, and special material will prevent a relay amplifier from picking up its unique signal and transmitting it.
According to research by the Institute of the Motor Industry, over half of motorists are worried their car could be accessed and stolen by thieves that are hacking the signal of their car keys.
Fifty percent of people surveyed weren't aware that their car might be vulnerable to cyber attacks, and while drivers shouldn't become paranoid about the safety of their car it's always a good idea to take precautions.
As hacking devices get more sophisticated, they may be able to pick up signals from further away.
Even if you make sure that your key is as far as possible from the front door as possible so the thieves can`t find it, that is no longer the case, as the thieves use stronger amplifiers nowadays and can hack the signal of your car key from much longer distances, i.e.: from your upstairs bedroom or even from your loft.
If you have spent $40,000 - $50,000 or even more on your pride and joy, make sure you make a good decision in choosing what is going to protect your car.
This may seem a bit excessive, but a good quality Faraday Pouch could be the best place to store your keys overnight as the Cupper Fabric will block the signal being detected.
Despite progress in anti-theft technology, thieves are always coming up with new ways to make off with your vehicle.
A steering wheel lock would also help in preventing this kind of theft and it would make a good team with the Faraday Bag.
