Your privacy is important.

Your vehicle's Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is used to connect the data from your device to a specific vehicle in your account. Most vehicles communicate the VIN directly to the Bouncie device through the OBD2 port.

Our system uses this information to ensure the driving and location data are correctly linked to a specific vehicle. This feature allows you the ability to move the device between vehicles and ensure the app shows the appropriate vehicle's data.

Once your VIN is initally entered, it cannot be changed. The solution to correct the VIN is to delete the vehicle and re-add it to your account using the correct VIN.

Note: To bypass entering a VIN, you can enter any 17 characters. However, keep in mind that if you place the Bouncie device in a different vehicle, Bouncie will be unable to separate the data collected between the two vehicles.

Bouncie adheres to our privacy policy and does not share or sell your data. You can review the Privacy Policy anytime.
