SUMMARY: - To protect your keys from these “relay” attacks, use something metallic since metal blocks signals. - The windshield, windows, and mirrors can be marked with a vehicle’s identification number (or VIN). This service doesn’t cost much, and it reduces the risk of theft significantly. - When prospective criminals see your car is well cared for, they’ll assume you must have a good alarm system and ways to find your vehicle. - A baby monitor makes a great anti-theft device because you’ll be able to hear everything that’s happening in your car. - If you know you’ll have to leave your car in an unfamiliar place, hide an old switched-on phone or tablet in it. Just remember to synchronize it with your Google account in advance. - A quick-release hub will let you take the steering wheel with you when you leave the vehicle, and thieves won’t be able to get far without it! - If you don’t feel like spending a bunch of money on car security, try a quick tug on a spark plug. A car won’t start without a spark on the cylinder. - If you bump into someone’s car or someone slightly bumps into yours, you should take the rights steps: roll up the windows, lock the doors, and call the police. - Park in areas that are well-lit and preferably have security cameras, such as building entrances and parking lots. - If you make use of an obvious anti-theft item, like a steering wheel lock, you should still install a GPS-tracker in an unusual place. - According to crime statistics, cars are most often stolen from public parking lots, gas stations, or near ATMs. - If you get a call from a company that has supposedly installed the alarm system, locks, or something else in your car, never answer the questions about safety. - If you’re having trouble locking the car with the fob, there’s a chance that someone is trying to intercept the signal, especially if you’re in a public area.
