YOUR 60 SECOND GUIDE TO EASILY PROTECT YOUR VEHICLE FROM MODERN SECURITY RISKS!

Remember, information you share via Bluetooth, Sat-Nav or your Smartphone link is open to abuse or theft by Cyber-Hackers! 

TAKE CARE OF YOUR VEHICLE AND PERSONAL DATA WITH MY TOP TEN TIPS! 

  1.  Immediately install all new software and security updates from your vehicle’s manufacturer. 
  2. Turn off your car’s Bluetooth and WiFi if you’re not using them for a while. 
  3. Cyber criminals could gain access to your smartphone and apps, install their security updates. 
  4. NEVER put your exact home address in your SatNav, use a nearby landmark. 
  5. For in-car WiFi NEVER use the default password and DON’T leave the password written in the car.
  6.  If you use apps to pay for toll fees or parking make sure they are password protected. 

RETURNING A LEASED VEHICLE OR SELLING YOUR OLD ONE? HERE’S WHAT TO DO:

  1. Go into the Bluetooth system on the vehicle and REMOVE your paired phone from the list and delete your contacts list. 
  2. Clear your private data from the infotainment system. 
  3. Do a “Factory Reset” to stop the vehicle’s web-connected services accessing your Facebook or Google accounts. 
  4. Clear your electric gate or garage door pairing from any integrated remote control, otherwise your car could give access to your property!
