Activate data sharing in connection with starting a connected service or app
If you have not activated data sharing for a connected service or downloaded apps, you can do this in connection with starting them in your centre display. The first time you start a service, or after e.g. a factory reset or certain software updates, you must also accept Volvo's terms and conditions for connected services.
Data sharing settings for Volvo On Call
Data sharing for the Volvo On Call service is activated as standard. This means that you do not need to activate data sharing for this service yourself when you buy a new car or after e.g. a factory reset.
Switch off data sharing and personal information for different systems
For certain car models, individual systems may need resetting, if you do not want them to share data from your car. See section "This article is relevant to" to see if this text is relevant to your car. Note that you will not be able to use your functions fully if some functionality is switched off.
Settings for privacy and data sharing are unique to each driver profile
When you start to use a new driver profile, the data sharing settings for the profile are set to the car's default settings and are deactivated.
Downloading and updating apps
When your car is connected to the Internet, you can easily download and update apps directly from the car's centre display. You also have the option to uninstall apps.
