A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Vizio “alleging that its use of data from smart TVs violates both federal and California state law,” according to Consumer Reports. The suit alleges Vizio doesn’t sufficiently protect the data it collects and shares via users’ smart TVs, in violation of the Video Privacy Protection Act. The suit also claims the company misled users about the way in which the collected data would be used. The suit follows news a hacker was able to gain access to a user's home network via a Vizio smart TV. Vizio has not yet commented on the suit.
