Keyless Vehicle Theft Prevention
Keyless vehicle theft, also known as ‘relay theft’ takes advantage of cars that have keyless entry and go system whereby the car can be started and driven when the key is nearby, negating the need to put it into the ignition.
Whilst convenient, this system can be exploited by thieves, who use amplifiers and transmitters to enhance the car key’s signal and ‘trick’ the car into thinking the key is nearby – this method can be carried out even if the key is in a locked house on a key hook.
Leaving your keys in a signal blocker pouch overnight is a robust method of defence against these attacks, preventing the key’s signal from exposure to amplification or other interference.
Prevents Credit Card Fraud
Whilst credit and debit cards have made making payments almost anywhere much more convenient, they have opened up new methods of crime.
Using apps freely available on popular smartphone app stores, criminals are able to copy data from contactless cards in seconds simply by holding their smartphone close to the card.
Using an RFID signal blocker prevents any signals from reaching your credit or debit card, keeping your details save from cloning.
Distraction Free Driving
Even with the new 6 point penalty, it’s clear that phones are a major distraction on the roads; with figures obtained by the Press Association revealing that 200 drivers per day were caught using their phone illegally in the 4 weeks following the new penalty.
In addition to being a robust security measure against modern crime, the Burton signal blocker pouch can prevent accidents on the roads by preventing calls, texts and other messages being received or sent.
