Your headphones may know more about you then you want them to.
A lawsuit launched this week against headphone company Bose alleges that the company has been tracking what users are listening to, including music, podcasts, news programs and other audio. The complaint filed by a Chicago man presses the company to stop disregarding their customers’ privacy.
Information is apparently stolen through the Bose Connect app which links wireless headphones to smartphones, and requires users to enter their name, email and headphone serial number.
The lawyer representing the case has said “people put headphones on their head because they think it’s private, but they can be giving out information they don’t want to share.”
