Amazon Pulls Blu Smartphones Over Spyware Concerns

The selection of low-cost Android phones on Amazon just got a little smaller.

Amazon has suspended Miami-based budget smartphone maker Blu—a former partner in Amazon’s Prime Exclusive Phones program—over spyware concerns.

SecurityWatch”We recently learned of a potential security issue on select Blu phones, some of which are sold on Amazon.com,” Amazon told PCMag today. “Because security and privacy of our customers is of the utmost importance, all Blu phone models have been made unavailable for purchase on Amazon.com until the issue is resolved.”
