Your car is lis­ten­ing to your every word and record­ing it in the man­u­fac­tur­ers per­ma­nent database
It’s so excit­ing to pur­chase a new car and sync your smart device up to it so you can make calls while on the road. Near­ly every new car comes equipped with inte­grat­ed on-board com­put­ing to make your dri­ving expe­ri­ence as com­fort­able and as pro­duc­tive as pos­si­ble. But they are doing more than that, much more.

Pri­va­cy advo­cates are up in arms about the mas­sive pri­va­cy vio­la­tions that occur every time a dri­ver starts up his car. The Ford Motor Com­pa­ny says that they record all phone calls and back­ground sounds in the vehi­cle and store them in their data­bas­es for up to 3 days.
