People don't like it when companies secretly collect data on them or track what they do. I guess this is even more so when the company in question is a sex toy manufacturer.
A few weeks ago, two researchers told the Defcon hacking convention audience that We Vibe "smart" sex toys send a lot of data about their users back to the company that makes them. According to Courthouse News, one We Viber took this news hard. A woman known only as "N.P." filed a class action civil suit in a federal court in Illinois against Standard Innovation, which makes the We Vibe line of sex toys and corresponding app.
