INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – An Indianapolis Colts fan has filed a lawsuit against the team and the makers of its official smartphone app, claiming it eavesdrops on the lives of thousands of users.

The Indiana man says the app uses special technology to activate his smartphone’s microphone and secretly record his conversations. While the app does ask users for permission to use their microphones, the lawsuit says there is no information listed about how and when it will be used.
