Bose accused of spying on customers

Bose Corp spies on its wireless headphone customers by using an app that tracks the music, podcasts and other audio they listen to, and violates their privacy rights by selling the information without permission, a lawsuit charged.

In order to do this, customers need to download an app from Apple or Google and fill out their information. Technically, he probably had to agree to the terms of service, but still, not a good move by Bose.

    No ethics, no moral codes. Must be Bose.

    I’m sure Dr Bose learned this at MIT. s/

  • Very bad move. I have the QC 35 headphones and the app.. Ugh. Hopefully Bose will update both to get out from under this. If not, I’ll sell them.

    I’ll say it again: we desperately need a privacy bill of rights.

  • Wow. This is disappointing. Im a big fan of Bose in general. Great sounding products for the average middle age music listener. I use multiple headphones from them WITH THIS APP. Very frustrating and hopefully Bose does a big about face.

  • Shit this almost Samsung like. Or Google like.
