Andrea AmicoFounder at Privacy4cars.com
The “Car Privacy Guy", Andrea Amico, is the founder of Privacy4Cars.com, the first app that helps businesses and consumers delete their personal information from vehicles. During his co-chairmanship of the Compliance Committee at the International Automotive Remarketers Alliance, Andrea realized there was a need for a simple and inexpensive process to erase the growing amount of PII vehicles capture - while building a compliance record. During the development of the Privacy4Car app, he discovered and responsibly disclosed "CarsBlues", a vehicle infotainment hack that makes it easy to expose and exploit the information left by users who paired their Bluetooth, such as contacts, call logs and even full-text messages. Auto-ISAC estimated that tens of millions of vehicles could be attacked with the CarsBlues technique.
