Wyze Erases "Co-Founder" Elana Fishman

By IPVM Team, Published Jan 19, 2023, 09:30am EST (Info+)

Wyze has rewritten its history to downplay early involvement of its former COO Elana Fishman—previously described by the company as a "co-founder" and featured prominently in media coverage—who was not mentioned as a co-founder in its 2023 New Year's greeting and was removed from its "Our Story" page on its website.

In this report, IPVM examines Wyze's letter to consumers, Fishman's lingering footprint in the company's internet presence, Wyze's explanation for its actions, and the outlook of the company in light of her quiet departure.
