According to new findings from Mozilla’s Privacy Not Included project, every major car brand fails to adhere to the most basic privacy and security standards in new internet-connected models, and all 25 of the brands Mozilla examined flunked the organization’s test.
Mozilla found brands including BMW, Ford, Toyota, Tesla, and Subaru collect data about drivers, including race, facial expressions, weight, health information, and where they drive. Some of the cars tested collected data drivers wouldn’t expect their car to know about, including details about sexual activity, race, and immigration status, according to Mozilla.
