Yes, Surete works by restricting the vehicle’s ability to start, and not by restricting the vehicle’s ignition. This means that they will be able to plug their phone in to power it on. This will then enable the phone to sync with the car again and continue normal operations. In addition, if the driver is with a friend, they will also have the option of downloading the Surete app onto their friend's phone and login in with their credential. The new phone will then be enabled to sync with the vehicle and allow the user to start the vehicle.
