Lithuanian DPA launches investigation into D-Link

It is feared that D-Link equipment user passwords, browsing history or other information can be accessed by third countries’ servers through D-Link’s devices, allowing profiling and identification of consumers.

State Data Protection Inspectorate also noted that D-Link’s processing activity potentially amounts to a violation of the General Data Protection Regulation’s (GDPR) transparency principle.
