Leading Automotive Privacy Platform Privacy4Cars Continues Driving Privacy Mission With New Patents
ATLANTA, November 30, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Privacy4Cars, the leading privacy technology company focused on identifying challenges posed by vehicle data and creating solutions to better protect consumers, today announced that it has been granted two patents, including a patent for its proprietary process aimed at removing privacy information from on-board modules. Privacy4Cars offers the world’s first and only tool for deleting personal information, including phone numbers, call logs, text messages, garage door codes, and more, which would otherwise remain stored in home systems. modern vehicles after a transfer.
In 2014, founder of Privacy4Cars, Andrea Amico, is the author of the first statistical study on the frequency and type of data left in rental and sales vehicles. It was while completing the project that he realized how extremely common it was for drivers and occupants to leave – and unknowingly grant others access – very digital fingerprints. detailed personal information in vehicles they no longer owned or controlled. Amico also realized that companies were at risk of violating an emerging and increasingly complex network of local and global regulations for respecting privacy and data security. The idea for a solution to solve these data privacy issues for consumers and businesses was born, and Privacy4Cars was born.
“By obtaining these two patents, Privacy4Cars has solidified itself as an undisputed leader and innovator in the field of vehicle privacy and security,” said Andrea Amico, founder / CEO of Privacy4Cars. “Last year, more than 4 in 5 cars were resold even though they still contained the personal information of the previous occupants. As regulations and litigation in this area continue to evolve and consumers are increasingly more aware of the growing amount of personal information that vehicles ingest, store, share and leave exposed if not properly deleted, automotive companies looking to effectively secure that data and protect their customers while establishing records compliance can rely on the proprietary solutions of Privacy4Cars. ”
Privacy4Cars has become the only industry standard removal tool and has been adopted by major automotive companies including OEM captives, auto finance companies, fleets, auto insurance companies, dealerships, auto auctions, vehicle salvage agents and vehicle inspection companies. .
