New Mozilla research has revealed that popular global car brands — like Chevrolet, Nissan, Toyota, Kia, Audi, Jeep, Honda, Volkswagen, and more — are collecting your deeply personal data, like your genetic information and sexual activity. This invasive harvesting of information is collected via a web of sensors, microphones, cameras and the phones, apps, and connected services you use in your vehicle.
Find out more about our research on cars in the official launch blog post.
**Update December 2023: Citing Mozilla’s research exposing these concerning data collection practices, U.S. Senator Ed Markey directly challenged the CEOs of many of the car companies we researched.1 The senator's detailed letters and specific questions on data collection in cars means the car companies will have to respond publicly to the specific issues raised in Mozilla's *Privacy Not Included buyer's guide. The more people that sign our petition right now while attention is on the issue, the more pressure we can build to get this technology regulated and removed.
