How an Antitheft Program Works
A unique DNA trace tracking number and toll-free national hotline are chemically etched into several hidden, strategic locations on and around your vehicle. The ID and phone number remain invisible to potential thieves, but are clearly revealed under UV lights used by police.
Warning labels are also placed in each front and side window to inform bystanders that your vehicle is heavily protected, which drastically reduces their opportunity for financial gain. Thieves will naturally leave your vehicle alone in favor of other, less-protected vehicles.
A geo-fence will notify you immediately in the unlikely event that your vehicle is moved past its radius.
