Stalking Victims Sue Amazon, Tile Over Tracking Device Product

A tracking device called Tile may be effective in preventing its user from losing keys, a dog, or a purse, but it is also a tool used by stalkers, according to two women who have filed a proposed class-action lawsuit against Tile Inc. and Amazon.

The lawsuit filed Aug. 14 against San Mateo, California-based Tile Inc., parent Life360, and Amazon in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California by two victims of stalking alleges negligence, unjust enrichment, privacy violations, and design defects.

“From the moment of the Tile tracker’s release, Tile marketed its product both explicitly and implicitly for the purpose of tracking people – particularly women,” the women allege.
