Bird Bike’s New OTA Alarm System Upgrade Is Here

Your electric-powered Bird Bike just got more secure. 

Today, Bird is proud to announce our new anti-theft alarm system—an Over-the-Air (OTA) vehicle upgrade giving Bird Bike owners additional peace of mind and added vehicle protection. 

Once activated in the Bird app, Bird Bike’s 120db alarm will sound whenever the bike is jostled or moved. It will also automatically prevent the power from being turned on until the alarm has been deactivated.

Activating Your New Bird Anti-Theft Alarm System

To activate your new anti-theft alarm system, you must first “pair” your Bird Bike in the Bird app. The process is as simple as: 

  1. Opening the Bird app
  2. Selecting the “Private Birds” option from the pulldown menu
  3. Tapping the “Pair” option

Riders will then be asked to either enter their vehicle serial number or scan the QR code that came with their bike. 

Once paired, the alarm can be activated and deactivated in the app simply by sliding the clearly-marked toggle left or right. That’s it! Added vehicle security and peace of mind at the touch of a button.
