Modern cars are a privacy nightmare.
It’s worse than you realize. In this video we dive into all the types of data your car is collecting about you: from video footage, microphone recordings, location data, biometrics, all the way to files/contacts/photos ingested from your phone!
00:00 Cars are NO place for a private conversation!
02:11 What data is our car collecting?
05:41 Video footage
08:40 There’s a SIM card in your phone, sending off all your data!
10:56 Sensors: Capturing weight, emotions, etc
11:10 DON’T CONNECT YOUR PHONE TO YOUR CAR!
13:00 Who is getting access to our data
14:06 This is a huge problem
This is the first video in a series we’re doing on car privacy. Later in the series we examine:
– how easy it is to hack modern cars
– trackers in cars that you had no idea existed
– the perverse incentives that drive companies to collect as much data about us as possible
– the history of when this all started
– dangers of used cars: the previous owner of your car might still have access to all your car’s remote features, tracking tools, and cameras!
– how to wipe your own information and location history from your car before you sell it
– how to opt out of this collection and better protect yourself
We really need to get a conversation going around car privacy, and increase awareness. It’s so important we push back against the normalization of these practices, starting now.
