Once every 43.8 seconds, a vehicle is stolen in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Thefts like these cost millions of dollars for owners and insurers, and cause insurance premiums to skyrocket - making everyone a victim.
The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) notes "By the time you finish reading this paragraph, another vehicle will be stolen somewhere in the U.S. Vehicle theft is a big business, frequently run by organized crime rings that are out to make huge profits, and they are doing it at your expense. Vehicle theft is driven by money and greed – it is a dangerous business that victimizes everyone."
So how do we help? First, we provide window labels that may defer a criminal by citing that the AUTOTAP ® lock is attached but if they do not, then once the criminal gets inside the vehicle the real value of the AUTOTAP ® lock is that if the criminal tries to attach an electronic device to steal the vehicle it will not be possible with the OBD port secured. The overall cybersecurity problem is that this port is wide open for anyone/anytime to attach an electronic device to steal, change the VIN number. roll-back the odometer, re-flashing network settings, or basic hacking. The AUTOTAP ® lock is the solution to this problem. It's simple - seal access to the vehicle electronic network port.
