Volkswagen is rolling out a few vehicle security updates in its Car-Net app on May 9 that include Curfew Alert and Valet alert that notify owners if their vehicles are being driven without permission, the automaker announced.

The app will also add the Parking Information feature powered by Parkopedia that helps drivers locate off-street parking.

Curfew Alert notifies owners if their vehicle is being driven after a specific time that can be set up in the app. If the vehicle is in use during the moratorium, the app will send an email or SMS text alert to the owner when the vehicle moves.

Valet Alert will notify an owner if a vehicle goes more than 0.2 mile further than the parked location, and can be activated when an owner gives a vehicle to a valet.
