Crime prevention advice - Faraday pouch

There has been a spate of theft of and theft from vehicles in the Aylesbury and the rural areas. Due to this here is some advice regarding keyless entry vehicles

Metal-lined key wallets to stop hi-tech crooks in their tracks

Keyless entry and starting for your car is convenient and user-friendly, but it does leave you vulnerable to hi-tech thieves. These criminals use relay attack devices to ‘read’ the key from outside your house. With the code copied, they can simply drive off in your vehicle. 
Storing your key in a Faraday bag, lined with layers of metallic material, is the way to foil them and keep your car safe. The key needs to be placed inside the bag from the moment you clip the locks. If it’s large enough, you can also put your mobile phone and credit cards to prevent hacking and fraud.  Keep your keyless car safe.
