    Keep the key in your pocket? I thought the point was that you don't need to go searching for your key when you've got a handful of shopping bags and that?

    That said, I'm not convinced, I laughed at my missus when she wrapped her key in foil to prevent this, but it seems to be a lot of hassle to protect against theft. I might have to do a test to find out the distance it works from, then make sure we keep the key further than that from the front of the house...

    FYI - we didn't pay for keyless, it was standard equipment on the car we got.

    My girlfriend's old car, a Kia Sportage, came with keyless entry as standard. I'm not a big fan of manufacturers pushing it on people, for this exact reason. Unless pin codes are added in the vehicle, or something similar, then there's always a risk of someone scanning your key and driving away in your car.

    It's just one more reason to hate them, since so many of them seem to think it's a selling point and endeavour to force it upon us.

    Oh, so it's inevitable and we should just accept it instead of fighting for better options?
    Great. Nvidia will be delighted to hear that you'll be wasting so much money on a Quad-SLI of their inevitable next rip-off GPU!

    Being inevitable doesn't mean it's any good.

    Pretty sure that's also why I've never gotten a keyless car...

    They shouldn't be possible to clone. That's the idea of a rotating key.

    If you'd read the article, it was only 40bit length, so a rainbow could be produced. No one should have made a 40bit keylength in 2000, let alone 2017.

    The amount of scanners available to locate the keyless signalfrom your house, and then transmit it / replicate it to the car on the drive is unending.

    Tesla is just the most recent to fall over with it.
    No this is different, this is cloning, those scanners just relay the data, this is much worse.

    used to be able to open and start my brother`s ford (don`t remember model) with a lollipop stick, not that you`d want to nick the poc.
