Vizio Fined $2.2 Million For Spying On TV Viewers

posted by Chelsey - 

Do you own a Vizio TV?! Reports are showing it's been monitoring what you watch and reporting it back to the company. According to the FTC, Vizio "then turned that mountain of data into cash by selling consumers' viewing histories to advertisers and others."

Whhhat? Basically Vizio knows who you were, what you liked to watch and then profited from that.

The FTC and New Jersey Attorney Generals office say that Vizio wasn't telling consumers about this practice. In order to settle the case, Vizio says it will stop tracking and will disclose it's TV viewing practice more prominently.

I have a Vizio TV at home! I wonder if it's been monitoring me?! Kinda weird to think about.
