A smart sex toy-maker has acknowledged that a bug with its app caused handsets to record and store sounds made while its vibrators were in use.
Lovense was alerted to the issue by a Reddit user who had discovered a lengthy recording on their phone.
The Hong Kong-based firm said that the audio file was not transmitted off the device and has now issued a fix.
But one expert said the case highlighted the risks of using internet-connected gadgets.

The matter gained attention after being reported by The Verge news site.
