Chubb has launched a new service designed to help personal auto clients remove sensitive electronic information from their vehicles in the event of an insured total loss.
“While hands-free GPS and mobile connectivity has made driving more convenient and safer, such conveniences come with their own set of unique risks,” said Fran O’Brien, division president, North America Personal Risk Services at Chubb. “Personal information is often stored in a car’s electronics system and when an accident happens, the last thing on drivers’ minds is that type of data. If that information falls into the wrong hands, it could result in the loss of personal privacy and thus a potential risk of exposing one’s physical assets and electronic identity to criminal activity or public disclosure.”
To identify relevant information after a total loss, technicians will scan locations and wipe necessary systems on Chubb insured vehicles, subsequently clearing GPS, mobile contacts, text messages, and garage and gate opening capabilities from the vehicle. The service is available at no additional cost to Chubb auto clients nationwide that experience an insured total loss.
With operations in 54 countries and territories, Chubb provides commercial and personal property and casualty insurance, personal accident and supplemental health insurance, reinsurance and life insurance.
