Vizio tracked and sold your TV viewing habits without consent

In a blog post explaining the case, Federal Trade Commission senior attorney Lesley Fair says Vizio began making smart TVs in 2014 that automatically tracked the owners viewing habits and beamed that info back to its servers. Fair explains the company also added the tracking tech to older models via a software update. All of this was done without clearly informing customers or getting the proper consent to do so. – Billy Steele, Engadget http://ift.tt/2lh2d9l
