The United States is set to roll out its controversial National Security Agency (NSA) mass surveillance program to the entire US population, according to new reports from the Washington Post and The Hill.
Free2Go and Hudson Mobility products are the latest to be targeted, as are HVac products, according the Washington Examiner, which cited unnamed sources.
Free 2Go is the company that produces the HV AC products, which include electric heaters and air conditioners.HVAC is a term that refers to the installation of heaters or air conditioner systems into the walls and ceilings of buildings.
Hudson Mobility was among the first to respond to the NSA program in August, releasing a statement calling for people to use the products and to share them with others.
Hudakon Mobility was the first company to respond in a public statement in November.
Free two go, Hudson and Free2go have been targeted by NSA surveillance since the program was announced in September of 2016.
Huldons products have been used by the federal government for years.
In 2015, it was revealed that Free2GO had been secretly selling the same equipment to the military.
The companies had previously responded to NSA surveillance by offering refunds, although Free2gos CEO Michael Deutsch and Huldon Mobility CEO David Stuckey were both indicted by a grand jury in December of last year for illegally sharing customer data.
Hudders company had previously apologized for the breach and promised to provide “all necessary assistance” to customers affected by the NSA spying program.
H2O was also caught up in the NSA surveillance program in 2016, after it was discovered that the company had been selling “unprecedented amounts of energy” to the US military and federal law enforcement agencies.
The company has also been a target of NSA surveillance, with a report that it was secretly selling equipment to law enforcement and military.
Huddle, which sells heaters to customers across the country, has also faced the scrutiny of the NSA.
In September, the company announced it was ending its partnership with the government, which has also targeted other companies including Free2 Go and Huddle.
