Cloning your Car’s Security Code

Did you know that the security code for gaining entrance to your car can easily be cloned? The danger of using your electronic door key opener could be fatal.
Man’s knowledge of technology has increased tremendously over the past 50 years and now the discoveries that should have been a technological improvement for the livelihood of the populace are now being used as a deliberate act of fragmenting national security and also being employed by thieves bent on stealing everything from your bank account information to the automobile used to secure your livelihood. Long gone are the days when you could feel a little sense of security as you went to the shopping mall and hoped to return and find your car and the contents in the car as you left them. We are living in a day when man’s heart has been taken over by fear of loosing what he has given up so much time in acquiring and even thieves are protecting are trying to go to extreme lengths to protect what they have stolen.

Now this type of entrance to ones vehicle by cloning the security code was revealed after an associate had gone to an undisclosed location.

After he had gotten out of his vehicle, he closed the door and used his key chain locking device to lock his car.

He hadn’t moved away from his car but a few steps when he heard his car door unlock. He repeated the process paying little attention regarding it as simply a faulty device but the car door unlocked a second time. He became concerned.

As he began to be perplexed about the whole situation out of the corner of his eyes he saw a car parked close by with two unscrupulous characters. He tried to lock the car again and when the locks pop open, the associate figured that something was not right and he got into his car sped away.

Device Exposed

It was not until his friend had parked his car in a store parking lot and returned from shopping to find that someone had gotten into his car and stolen all his possessions.

Among the items stolen were camera, lab top, GPS navigator and briefcase.

There was no sign of a break-in except for the missing items.

He went to the police station to make a report and the police told him he had been a victim of the latest robbery tactic.

They told him that there is a device that robbers are now using to clone your security code when you lock your doors on your car using your key-chain locking device.

The police told him that the thieves sit and wait for their victims with a cloning device.

The way it works is that when you hit the lock button on your car upon exiting, it does not send the security code, but if you walk away and use the door lock on your key
chain, it sends the code through the airwaves where it can be instantly stolen.

Therefore, always hit the lock button on your car  and stay away from  your key-chain locking device.
