Well, you can officially add Bose headphones to the list of electronics that have been eavesdropping on you. If you own a pair of their wireless headphones, there is an app that tracks the music and podcasts you listen to, which Bose has been selling that information to other parties.
According to a new lawsuit filed by Kyle Zak, that is a violation of the company’s privacy rights. Zak is currently seeking an injunction to stop the “wholesale disregard,” which would protect other customers who have downloaded the Bose Connect app.
Chances are if you use any of these headphones listed below, your information is being sold to a third party.
- QuietComfort 35
- QuietControl 30
- SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II
- SoundLink Color II
- SoundSport Wireless
- SoundSport Pulse Wireless
Bose has not commented on the lawsuit.
