If you drive an autonomous vehicle, turn off the GPS when not in use

Self-driving vehicles are becoming increasingly popular. Because they’re connected to the internet, autonomous vehicles are susceptible to being hacked. One of the easiest ways for a hacker to infiltrate an autonomous vehicle is through “GPS spoofing,” or when they use radio signals to disrupt the car’s navigation system. This method tricks the car into thinking it has reached the destination when it really hasn’t. Turning this feature off when not needed is the best way to deter such a threat.
