It means they just got ratted out to Progressive for slowing down just a little too fast.The Snapshot device is a small module that you plug into your On-Board Diagnostics Type 2 (OBD-II) port on your car.The Snapshot device continuously streams your vehicle’s data to Progressive’s servers while driving.

For the past six months, I signed up to participate in Progressive’s Snapshot Discount program, which offers a device that you attach to your car that transmits data about your driving activity.
Maybe if I can get my hands on one of those Stingray scanners, I could intercept the cellular data being passed over the air.
But one doesn’t have to go to that extent – the OBD-II protocol is fairly open and can allow monitoring the data being passed between the port and the device, a classic MITM attack. The Snapshot device appears to only snitch on you with two types of data.
I figured why not try it out and see if the discounts are as good as they claim.
