Phone Data in Cars

Phone Data in Cars


When you connect your cell phone to Bluetooth in an automobile for “hands free calling,” you may have downloaded your address book / contact list to the stored memory of the vehicle.


This is OK and convenient for making calls if it is your vehicle. However, if it is a rental car or you are selling your car, you may be making your contact list accessible to the next driver of the car.


Before selling your vehicle or turning in a rental car, erase your contacts from the vehicle’s saved memory.  Ask an employee at the rental car agency or car dealer how to do this.


I am committed to protect your computers at an affordable price. Thank you for trusting me to keep your computers healthy. Contact us at 239-567-0104 when it is time to renew your protection software, or if you need computer and internet help. Be well.
