5. Keep your keys in foil.
There are gadgets available that catch signals and are widely used by criminals for stealing cars without a key.
For example, if the car is parked in a garage of a private house or under the windows of a multi-story building, the keys are accessible through the radio device. Thieves can easily intercept the signal, and the owner of the car won’t notice anything. According to experts, in order to protect your keys from “relay” attacks, you should use something metallic since metal blocks signals.
That’s why instead of hanging keys near the front door, it’s better to place them in:
- the fridge
- a microwave oven
- a Faraday wallet
Below, you can see how easy it is to get a signal in order to steal a car. It only took 20 seconds!
