Unless there are points specifically designed for recovery there is a chance you will damage the other vehicle if you start yanking on it. I am saying it is not a good idea to attach a strap to even a bumper ever for recovery. Most bumpers are mounted on a "shock" that is designed to help absorb a hit and not to be pulled. Recover points have to be mounted to the frame. If you run a strap under a car with a plastic bumper cover you will probably damage that cover and possible whatever you hook to. Thoose little hooks under many cars are not recovery points.
thank you Ross this is all I wanted to know
