Bad vibrations: Your sex toy may be collecting information about you

Here’s a place you probably don’t want Big Brother joining you: your bedroom.

An Illinois woman is suing the company behind her connected vibrator for getting a little too close for comfort. The suit alleges manufacturer Standard Innovation “secretly collect[ed] intimate details about its customers’ use of the We-Vibe” through the accompanying app, which allows users to control the device remotely and customize its features.

According to the lawsuit, the We-Connect app was transmitting information including dates and times of use as well as vibration mode and pattern to the company’s servers along with personally-identifiable email addresses without notifying customers.
