Lovense Hush

Review Date 11/01/18

This vibrating, teledildonic butt plug comes in either a small or medium size version. Connect the toy to the app via Bluetooth and use it for solo fun or let your partner control it for fun together or over the internet if you're far apart. It's USB rechargeable and claims to last up to 2 hours of continuous use. You can even use the app to customize vibration patterns or sync in to your favorite love songs. A report in 2017 showed this device could be hacked, however.

What could happen if something went wrong

Lovense does a seemingly pretty good job with privacy and security currently. However, this particular device has been hacked in the past (see article below). One thing that has us worried is when a user downloads the Lovense Remote app and signs up to use it, the app doesn't requires a strong password. We signed up using 123456. This means nearly anyone good at guessing or cracking weak passwords could sign in to your account and remotely access your toys or see your activity.

Net-connected vibrator collects users' intimate data, lawsuit claims
NBC News
The maker of an internet-connected sex toy was accused in a federal lawsuit Wednesday of secretly gathering detailed data about its customers' use of the product, including when and how long they use it. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, alleges that Lovense, a division of Hytto Ltd., based in Hong Kong, collects and records "highly intimate and sensitive data regarding consumers' personal use" of Lush. Lush is a vibrator that users — or their partners operating remotely — control through a Bluetooth-enabled iPhone and Android phone using an app called Body Chat.
