Smart TVs Record Your Casual Conversation.

Televisions that offer voice commands are the hottest new thing on the market.  If you have Samsung unit you should read the fine print.  The fine print for Samsungs Smart TV voice recognition system says that it will not only capture your private conversations, but all pass them onto third parties.

Seems like the NSA’s isn’t the only one you need to worry about spying on you.  Then again, perhaps that is what we get if we feel that pressing a few buttons is too much like work.

Now don’t get me wrong, it seems understandable that in order for voice recognition to work, it actually needs to listen to what you are saying, all the time.  The part that is worries me is the part in the privacy policy that says “Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party through your use of Voice Recognition.”.

The possibilites boggle the mind.

But this doesn’t end with Smart TVs, or Nest thermostats.  Anything that has a digital connection is a possibility for eavesdropping in what you think is your private life.

This is your digital bed, lie in it.
