A new study by Mozilla has found that car companies are the worst product category for privacy. The study analyzed 25 car brands and found that all of them collect excessive amounts of personal data about their drivers. This data includes information about drivers’ medical history, genetic information, and sexual activity. Car companies also share this data with third-party companies, such as data brokers and the government.
The study’s findings are alarming, as they suggest that car companies are collecting and sharing sensitive personal information without giving drivers much control over how their data is used. This raises serious privacy concerns, as it could allow car companies to discriminate against drivers based on their personal information.
