Do THIS Before Selling Your Car!

Do THIS Before Selling Your Car!

Cars are no longer dumb machines — They’re smart devices with hundreds of computers bolted on top that collect information about our activities. Some car companies have even explicitly said in their privacy policies that they collect information about your sexual activity!

Given that so much information is stored in our car, what happens when we sell it? Do we just hand this sensitive information off to the next owner? And given the remote capabilities of modern cars, how do we make sure the previous owner can’t still access our data when we buy a used car?

Here are steps you MUST take when you buy or sell a used car.

00:00 Cars Collect Info on Your Sex Life!
02:25 Selling Your Car
05:18 Renting a Car
07:32 Deleting Data from the Head Unit
09:11 Buying a Used Car
11:59 Asserting Data Rights
12:39 Recap
13:51 Conclusion

Now that we’re starting to get a glimpse of what’s going on under the hood of car data collection, we can start pushing back against it.

Special Thanks to Andrea, Woody, and Sam for lending their expertise!
