2011 Kia Optima - Trunk Lid Opens On It's Own

On my 2011 Kia optima , I find my trunk lid open in the morning & sometimes during the day. This happen many times, what could be the problem ?

The button on the fob for the trunk is very sensitive, if you keep your keys in your pants pocket, you’re probably pushing the button just enough to pop open the trunk, even putting your keys into your pocket can push the button.

Hyundai and Kia both have that problem.
