Tips & Tricks Tuesday!!!

We don't often think about our cars as something we need to password protect, however with technology heavy features in new cars, it's definitely something to think about.

The Problem:
Password-Protected Apps- Many automakers, including Nissan, Porsche, Subaru, Toyota, and Volkswagen, offer car-connected apps. These apps are pretty handy: They allow you to remotely lock and unlock your car, set the car’s thermostat, and remotely start the engine. And like other apps and accounts you use, they are vulnerable to hackers who may attempt to access your data.

The Fix: You’ve heard it before, but it’s true: Creating strong, unique passwords can make it harder for hackers to access your data. It's that simple!

Tips and Tricks Tuesday!!!

Summer is upon us and with that brings heat, and everyone knows no place is hotter than the inside of a parked car.

One way to combat the greenhouse effect inside your car is to AUTO-START your car before you even get in it!

If you leave your air conditioning on before you turn the car off, when you auto-start your car via your key fob/phone app the air will kick on and your car will cool. By the time you get into your car, your car will be nice and cool!

*Nissan has been used as a example. Many car brands offer autostart!
