With our assistance, you can easily arrange your access to Manufacturer Secure Gateways. Without such access, you may find yourself unable to work on newer vehicles.
Securing gateway access is crucial when utilizing a vehicle diagnostic tool for several reasons:
First and foremost, without access to secure gateways, you cannot work on the latest "secure gateway" vehicles. This feature guarantees data security, as vehicle diagnostic tools have the capability to gather sensitive information about the vehicle's systems, such as engine performance, location data, or even personal settings. Secure gateway access ensures that this data remains protected from unauthorized access or tampering.
Manufacturers are also keen to prevent any unauthorized modifications. With secure gateway access, only authorized individuals or technicians are granted the ability to make changes to the vehicle's software or configurations. This measure aids in preventing unauthorized modifications that could lead to malfunctions, performance issues, or potential safety risks.
Additionally, secure gateways serve as a defence against vehicle hacking attempts. As vehicles become increasingly interconnected, hackers seek to exploit vulnerabilities in vehicle systems. Secure gateway access helps safeguard against unauthorised entry and potential hacking attempts, ensuring both the vehicle's safety and the privacy of its owners.
Finally, vehicle manufacturers enforce secure gateway access to retain control over software updates and compatibility with third-party tools. This means that only authorized diagnostic tools, such as Autel's diagnostic products, can access the necessary data and perform appropriate diagnostics and repairs on vehicles.
Secure gateway access can only be added to AUTEL UK tools with an EU support tag. This service is not available for counterfeits, grey imports or Autel tools that do not have an EU/UK support tag number on the rear.
