Privacy4Cars secures third patent to delete personal information from vehicles
Privacy4Cars announced that it has secured a new patent for the deletion of data from in-vehicle modules. This marks the third patent for Privacy4Cars, which announced its first two patents for its proprietary processes in November 2021. Privacy4Cars offers a tool to manage and track the deletion of personal information including phone numbers, call logs, text messages, garage door codes, and more that would otherwise remain stored in modern vehicles’ systems after a handoff.
“The acquisition of our third patent further cements Privacy4Cars’ clear innovation leadership in the automotive privacy tech space,” said Andrea Amico, Privacy4Cars founder/CEO. “Our growing IP portfolio and our fast acceptance as an industry standard by auto finance companies (including OEM captives), fleets, dealerships, and service providers such as auto auctions, recovery agents, and vehicle inspection companies makes Privacy4Cars the clear go-to partner for any company that wants to meet rising compliance mandates to protect consumers’ electronic personal information, and make vehicle privacy and security a source of differentiation and value.”
U.S. Patent No. 11,256,827 covers additional aspects of the process of managing and aiding data deletion in vehicles by using a computing device. It joins U.S. Patent No. 11,157,648 and U.S. Patent No. 11,113,415 in Privacy4Cars’ growing portfolio of data privacy and security in vehicles patents. Privacy4Cars continually invests in innovation and in filing additional US and International patents.
Privacy4Cars is currently available in the US, Canada, UK, EU, Middle East, India, and Australia, and plans to further expand its geographical reach to address the growing number of countries that have comprehensive privacy and data security laws. Privacy4Cars is available to consumers as a free to download app, and to businesses as a subscription service. Businesses can use Privacy4Cars’ stand-alone app or choose to integrate Privacy4Cars’ Software Development Kit to easily embed its patented data deletion solution as a feature inside their existing apps.
