Canada bans equipment because the wrong drivers are using it

The world's second largest country now bans the use of the small emulator "Flipper Zero" because the authorities believe it can be used to steal cars.

In Canada they have a big problem with car theft. But the authorities do not know whether the small device "Flipper Zero" can be used to steal cars.

Nevertheless, the popular equipment has now been banned in the country because the authorities believe that the Flipper Zero can be used for just that. So stealing cars.

This is written by the media Vice .

Flipper Zero is, in all its simplicity, a small box that can be used to emit, read and copy a variety of wireless signals. For example, from a remote-controlled car.

But the Canadian authorities do not know if the 'copier' is capable of stealing the cars as well.

However, it has been proven that the device can be used to, for example, open the charging port on Tesla models and disrupt the signal in an electric garage door opener.

Vice also writes, however, that the authorities in Canada hit the mark. Because Flipper Zero cannot bypass, for example, an immobilizer in a car. Not even if it is electronic.

Instead, the tech industry now accuses the ban of being the auto industry's way of getting around their own lack of safety.

And holes are there. For example, Kia and Hyundai models in North America lack equipment that we take for granted in Europe. This makes the cars extremely easy to steal.

In fact, stealing certain Kia and Hyundai models has spread as a trend on the social media site TikTok. Read more about it here .
