At DEF CON, hackers revealed that connected vibrators keep a diary of their owners’ sex life — and send this data to the developer:

What happened?

The company that produces the We-Vibe 4 Plus is called Standard Innovation. It claims the device is the number one couples’ vibrator in the world. In comparison to the base model, the We-Vibe 4, the Plus version supports remote control through a mobile app that can be installed on the phones of both partners. Users can create “playlists” — basically, sequences involving vibration intensity and frequency.

All well and good, so far. But the devil is in the details: The same app that keeps a diary of your sex life also shares that intimate data with the developer.
