YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS AT RISK: Used vehicles are changing owners with prior personal data (e.g. phone logs, navigation history, cell phone address books, etc.) remaining in the vehicle’s Infotainment, Bluetooth, Navigation, or other in-vehicle technology.
WHY CAR DATA PRIVACY MATTERS: Media, regulators, advocacy groups, lawyers, and industry experts are increasingly concerned about the growing amount of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) stored in vehicles and the potential impact of electronic PII being exposed to third parties, or exploited by criminals. Leaving PII in your vehicle when you sell, trade-in, or return a rental car puts you at risk for identity theft.
EXISTING SOLUTIONS ARE INADEQUATE: Resetting the vehicle’s systems to factory settings and wiping the personal data from the vehicle is a time-consuming manual effort. The process varies greatly across different makes, models, years, and trims. Manuals are lengthy and often hard to decipher, or are incomplete. There is no common application or device that can be plugged into each vehicle to accomplish the task of deleting personal data in cars. Compliance is challenging, and service providers typically charge 20-30 minutes of labor per vehicle to wipe personal data.
PRIVACY4CARS©: We developed the largest and fasted growing database of step-by-step visual instructions and a patent-pending process that greatly streamlines and logs the deletion of Personally Identifiable Information (typically down to 2-5 minutes) to provide simple compliance and car privacy protection.
Our technology provides “perfect recall”, allowing users to rapidly and reliably erase all the personal information stored within in-vehicle technology. Privacy4Cars is available either as a stand-alone app or as a plug-in that can be embedded into your own app.
