The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has released recommendations for consumers to protect their personal data when using rental vehicles. Rental vehicles may contain infotainment systems that can connect with personal devices to stream music, allow hands-free calls and texts, or guide navigation. However, using connected vehicles can increase the risks of having personal data compromised. By taking precautions, users can protect themselves and their personal information.
