Hyundai Tucson: Hyundai Digital Key / Personalized profile and vehicle settings

You can set the registered digital key profiles for Driver 1 and Driver 2. When you use the digital card key or the Hyundai Digital Key app, the vehicle can be set to the user-defined personalized profile (includes items such as driver settings and audio preferences).

Linking/Unlinking profile

Profile link

1. Select Setup > User Profile > Profile Settings > Link Digital Key (Smartphone) in the infotainment system menu.

2. Unlock your smartphone and place it on the vehicle authentication pad (wireless charging pad).

3. Select Link to connect the registered phone’s digital key and the user’s profile.

Profile unlink

Select Digital Key Information from the infotainment system Settings menu to unlink a profile.


If you connect both Driver 1 and Driver 2 with a single smartphone, the digital key (smartphone key) always uses the profile settings for Driver 1. If you unlink Driver 1, the Driver 2 profile settings are used.
