Beware: Your car’s technology is watching you
In recent years, automobiles, SUVs and pickup trucks have transformed from private transportation to private detectives. While you keep your eyes on the road, vehicles are keeping an eye on you.
They know where you drive and when. They know who you talk to on the phone. They know the topics of your e-mails. They may even have photos of your dog. To be sure, automakers promise they’ll be prudent in how they store and safeguard all the information being scooped up by car computers. Legions of banks, credit card companies and retailers that have been hacked made similar pledges.
