Ford vehicles will send you an alert to your smartphone if your car is stolen, or someone tries to start it illegally.
SecuriAlert will send a notification to the vehicle owner’s smartphone if there is abnormal boarding activity Ford will warn you when using your smartphone if your car is stolen. Despite containment, vehicle crime remains a problem, and is even increasing in some countries. In cities where cars are parked on the street overnight, car owners don’t hear the alarm at all, or hear their car start up and drive away. Ford recognizes this problem and is testing an enhanced security system that connects to smartphones it calls SecuriAlert. Once activated, SecuriAlert will send a notification to the vehicle owner’s smartphone if it detects any vehicle activity, including door opening or key start, providing peace of mind. to vehicle owners when their vehicle is out of sight. SecuriAlert will work in tandem with FordPass, an app that connects car operating systems to smartphones, which is currently unavailable in some Asian markets. However, vehicles equipped with the latest versions of the SYNC 3 system come pre-installed with Ford Pass, meaning the technology is already on board, just waiting to connect to SecuriAlert. The FordPass app, through SecuriAlert, will reveal the time and cause for any alerts, as well as the vehicle’s last location. If someone tries to open the car door with the key, SecuriAlert will still send an alert. This can be especially helpful in identifying someone who wants to get into a car with a copied or stolen key. When owners return to their vehicle – to drive to work in the morning, they simply dismiss the SecuriAlert alert via the FordPass app and continue their journey.
