Juul is Tracking When and Where You Use Your Vape

The Infinite Brief
E-cigarette company Juul’s latest defense against underage users is an app-connected e-cigarette which requires users to be over 18.

The product, called the Juul C1, pairs with an Android-only app via Bluetooth and has been launched in the UK after a trial in Canada.

It records data on when and where it is used and keeps track of how many puffs a users takes, tracking their average smoking habits.

The C1 app uses facial recognition and a two-step background check to verify a user’s age, preventing teenagers from using the device.
