Most new vehicles on the market come with keyless entry systems that use a "smart key" that allows them to lock and unlock their doors, trunk or tailgate and start the car from afar.
But while these smart keys have made starting, locking and unlocking your car easier than ever, thieves have figured out a way to commandeer the technology to steal cars.
They do this using a system called a "relay attack."
To avoid becoming a victim of this kind of theft, there are steps you can take to protect your vehicle.
One big concern for all of us these days is online safety and protecting our personally identifiable information and credit card information.
Not only that, but clicking on a nefarious link on a website or in an e-mail can unleash a cyber attack on your computer with bots rifling through all of your files.
So how can you avoid being hacked and having your personal data exposed? Follow these tips.
If your child is gearing up to attend college, they will leave the comforts of home to likely be on their own for the first time.
And while they and their belongings have been under the protective custody of you and your insurance, now that they will be living away they may not be as responsible as you are.
Now is a good time to take stock of your insurance and what kind of coverage is available to college students.
