15 Aug Privacy Advocates Call for Better Regulation of GPS Starter Interrupt Devices
Sharon Polsky, president of the Privacy and Access Council of Canada, recently called out companies that use starter interrupters and similar technologies. She said that such devices does not create a level playing field and only benefits the companies, to the detriment of their customers.
GPS starter interrupt devices are used by auto finance companies to track and even disable the cars of customers with bad credit.
Canadian Automobile Association spokesperson Gary Howard also said that the use of the devices seem beyond reasonable and may pose a risk to people’s safety and security.
