#StackBounty: #android #information-gathering Using android auto in a rental car

Bounty: 200

I’ve started using rental cars frequently for work and android auto has apparently become common enough that many of the cars I rent have it built in. It could be helpful to me even over the short time period of a car rental but I’m hesitant. Having never used it before I’m not familiar with the ecosystem or potential information security risks that might be associated with its usage on someone else’s car. That’s pretty much the extent of my question(s):

What, if anything, are the potential risks of using android auto on a rental car/shared vehicle? Are there any steps that can be taken to minimize any potential risks, in particular the risk of any information from my phone (including identifying information about my phone) being left behind for someone else to find?
