A Class-action lawsuit has been filed by individuals who purchased the Bluetooth equipped We-Vibe Rave vibrator. The plaintiffs claim their usage details were sent to the manufacturer without their permission.
In the annals of the invasive collection of private information via the internet, the story of the We-Vibe Rave may mark a milestone.
Customers have accused the sex toy of sending the manufacturer details of how the high-end vibrator was being used without the consent of the owner. That’s the charge in a federal class-action lawsuit filed in Illinois against Ottawa-based Standard Innovation.
An Illinois woman identified only as N.P. says she bought the device for $130 in May. She then downloaded an app, We-Connect, offered by Standard Innovation, and used it to pair her smartphone with her vibrator through a bluetooth connection. Her We-Vibe Rave then went live, so to speak, even hackable.
So the woman is complaining the manufacturer found out how the vibrator was being used? Now, I’m no detective, but I thought most vibrators had a single function.
Or are you ladies using them to chop vegetables now?
