Physical keys offer almost no protection these days, you can buy a decoder key off ebay and in a few minutes you've got the key combination number.
My neighbours 2016 Focus got done, and in Ford's wisdom, if you open the car with the key the alarm doesn't go off. So her car got ransacked three times on the drive before she decided she had to sell it, as after the first time they had the key combination and could just walk up and open it with their key. Ford's only solution to her was replacing the locks and keys.
Now that IS disheartening. I thought that we Ludites were safe .

Why not 4 neat stacks of bricks and take the wheels before someone else does.... no locking wheel nuts remember!
Oh damn, that won't work, you will need a jack..... cross link to another thread, methinks.....

You are seriously suggesting keeping a mobile phone in a faraday cage...?
NO NO And No. Don't use the mobile App. use the Credit card key if you are so worried. Or get an old fashioned steering lock, and wheel clamp.
Seriously i forgot it was an app on the mobile. forgive my ignorance
