Ford Will Now Alert You Using Your Smartphone If Your Car Is Being Stolen


Despite the lockdown, vehicle crime remains a problem, and is even on the increase in some countries. Car alarms can help to deter thieves. However, in cities where vehicles are parked on the street overnight, owners may ignore the alarm, not realizing it is from their car, or fail to hear it altogether.

Ford recognizes this problem and has made a smartphone-connected heightened security system which they call SecuriAlert.

Once activated, SecuriAlert sends a notification to the vehicle owner’s smartphone if it identifies any vehicle activity, including attempts to open doors or gain access with a key, providing peace of mind to customers when their cars are out of sight—or out of earshot.


The FordPass app reveals the time and reason for any SecuriAlert alarms, via the smartphone, as well as the vehicle’s last known location.

If an attempt is made to open a door using a key, an action that would not trigger a conventional vehicle alarm, SecuriAlert will still send an alert. This can be particularly useful in identifying attempts to access to a car using a cloned or stolen key.

When the owner returns to their vehicle – to drive to work in the morning, for example, they simply disarm SecuriAlert via the FordPass app and continue on their journey.
