Computer Rental Places Spying on Customers

Computer Rental Places Forced to Stop Spying on Customers
 Imagine having a rental computer in your home and knowing that the company renting you the device has spyware installed on the machine that logs your every keystroke, and even takes photos of you doing whatever it is you're doing in the room. This is the reality for over 420,000 customers of seven different computer rental companies. Photos of them in various stages of dress, their children, and even sexual encounters were transmitted to these stores in order to help them collect on debts. Not only that, but passwords and other things typed by the customers were also logged and transmitted, often revealing personal and unchecked information about their customers to whatever employee came across it. Seven rent-to-own companies were placed under investigation and ultimately forced to stop using this spyware on their customers by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission).
