The BMW Digital Key can be shared by up to five additional people.

Whether family, friends or business partners: you can authorise up to five other people with a compatible iPhone to use your BMW by sending them an invitation from the Wallet app on your smartphone to add them as users. A practical feature, for example, for new drivers. When transferring the BMW Digital Key, you can set restrictions using a check off list. For example, a key with restricted access limits the available engine power and ensures that Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Intelligent Safety cannot be deactivated.

Note: The available limitations vary from model to model. Only the master key can add other persons using Apple Wallet. Permission for use can be withdrawn at any time via the master key. Shared digital keys cannot be transferred to third parties.
