ADT Security Breach
Your home is your sanctuary. There is no greater right to privacy than that which you enjoy inside your own place of residence. It is where you live out everything from your most personal and intimate moments down to your typical daily grooming routines. People rightfully have a reasonable expectation of privacy while inside their homes and on their own property.
It has recently been discovered that home security giant ADT failed to prevent their employees from gaining access to the home security cameras that they installed inside and around their customers’ homes. ADT employees were able to view homeowners during their most vulnerable moments, such as during sexual intercourse and while in the bath or shower. Cameras facing the outside of customers’ homes allowed ADT employees to track when homeowners entered and exited their property. In some instances, it was revealed that ADT employees had been secretly watching their customers on their own home security camera systems over a period of several years.
ADT’s website implores prospective customers to “trust America’s #1 home security provider.” Unfortunately, ADT’s failure to properly supervise their employees and failure to configure their own security systems to prevent tampering has resulted in a catastrophic breach of the public’s trust, the scope of which is only just now beginning to be uncovered.
If you are an ADT customer anywhere in the United States and you have ADT home security surveillance video cameras installed inside or outside of your home, you may be a victim. Individuals who were at risk of being affected by ADT’s malfeasance may be entitled to significant financial compensation for this egregious invasion of privacy.
