CHICAGO (WLS) — There’s a new reason to keep a close eye on your keys. The ABC7 I-Team tested new apps that make copies of keys without the owner’s knowledge or permission.
Two of the key cloning apps say the new technology doesn’t make it any easier to steal keys. In fact, they say it leave an electronic trail. But some locksmiths have concerns.
The I-Team shows you how easy it is for someone to get in your home with help from a smart phone.
We usually think of keys being made by bringing in the physical copy. But now, a smartphone and white piece of paper can clone your key.
