Lawsuit Claims Colts App Eavesdropped on Users

indianapolis-colts-nfl-roundel-area-rugA class action lawsuit has been filed claiming that the Indianapolis Colts mobile app “systematically and surreptitiously intercepting consumers’ oral communications.”  “With the microphone activated, the app listens to and records all audio within range — including consumer conversations.”

The app was designed by Yinzcam Inc. and has the functionality to direct fans in the stadium to special offers from vendors.  Plaintiff claims that the app turned on the microphones regardless of whether the user was in the stadium, “in church, in their cars, at work, or in their homes.”

The Colts did not comment on the lawsuit
