Cars accused of identity theft

Auto experts have predicted that cars will collect and share more data about drivers. About it reports TV channel CNBC.

By 2030, more than 95 percent of new cars will have built-in connectivity, according to Counterpoint. Machines will exchange data with each other, but also collect redundant information about users.

Counterpoint senior analyst Parv Sharma has already accused automakers of identity theft. According to him, privacy settings are often hidden deep in the car’s firmware. Companies benefit from collecting customer information—a 2021 McKinsey report found that companies could earn between $250 billion and $400 billion by selling driver data to third parties.

The channel’s journalists also referred to a September report from Mozilla, whose specialists analyzed modern cars regarding data storage. “Automobiles are the worst product category we have ever reviewed for privacy,” the experts concluded.

In conclusion, the authors noted that users who are concerned about the safety of their data should carefully check the car settings. Consumers were also advised to purchase older versions of machines without smart features.
