To fight the criminals, Jaguar Land Rover launched a new security system at the end of 2023, which helps to prevent thieves gaining entry by using a fake keyless fob.
Whilst the technology is new, the company has noted that the feature can be implemented on some older models, with some dealers already making contact with owners.
Motorists were also advised to download the ‘Land Rover Remote’ app to their smartphone and activate the ‘Guardian Mode’ feature to monitor any activity surrounding the car.
