Movístar launches phone App to prevent car theft
Wednesday, October 19, 2022 @ 8:45 PM

NATIONAL telecomms giant Telefónica has created an anti-car theft phone App for less than the cost of a glass of wine per month.

Movístar, Telefónica's mobile and internet brand, has joined forces with one of Spain's key home security alarm system providers, Prosegur, and with the communications corporation's in-car technology provider Net4things, in setting up its new 'thief alert'.

For those who already subscribe to the company's motoring technology service Movístar Car, which costs €3 a month, the Movístar Car Protect App comes in at an extra €1.95.

It allows the customer to name people who have their permission to use their car, logging their details into the App via bluetooth connections with these permitted drivers' own devices.

This means alerts will not be sent if a person with the car-owner's permission unlocks or starts the vehicle.

But if a person not registered on the App attempts to drive or enter it, or any other 'unauthorised' or 'suspicious' movement involving the vehicle is detected, the owner will receive an immediate notification either via text message, automated phone call, or an alert through the Movístar Car Protect App itself.
