Last.fm spying via the Stream 83i

Postby Matthew74 » Tue Jul 15, 2014 12:03 am

Hello all. I have just realised that Last.fm collects our listing data, from our 83i radios when you play music from a USB stick. I, like most signed up for the free month on Last.fm when I bought my radios, but I had no idea that listening information was being sent to them. I was quite shocked when I saw what I had just listened to on their website. I suppose I agreed to it, when I signed up for the free trial. In my opinion it is a very dirty and underhanded trick on Last.fm and Robert's part. Shame on you.

The last FM streaming service has now ended, prompting Roberts to introduce the 93i as a replacement, so this should no longer be an issue. After reading your post I did some research - which I foolishly didn't save - and concluded that you could have chosen privacy settings which would have opted you out. I don't think Roberts should be blamed in this matter.
