Modern Car Theft
Car theft in the modern day is not about smashing a window and hot-wiring the engine. Criminals now employ a range of techniques and technologies to improve their chances of stealing your car.
Standard security measures are usually not enough to prevent the attack, as criminals are getting smarter every day. A recent theft trend is Keyless entry, otherwise known as a ‘Relay Attack’, and can be completed in less than 60 seconds.
Other forms of modern car theft include signal jamming, which affect GPS only tracking devices. Criminals use modern devices to jam the tracking signal from the tracking device, stopping an alert being sent out during the theft. If your car is then hidden underground or in a shipping container, the signal from a GPS only device will not be picked up.
