GM OnStar Sells Driver Data To Insurance Companies

On March 11, 2024, a New York Times report found that GM vehicles with OnStar Smart Driver are potentially sending driving information to insurance companies without the vehicle owner’s consent. Even if drivers do not activate their vehicles’ OnStar feature, the vehicles will reportedly still send information to insurance companies that includes dates of trips, start and end times of trips, distance driven, instances of speeding, hard braking or sharp accelerations. As a result, drivers’ insurance premiums can increase by as much as 21 percent.
