Smart TVs May Be Listening
to Your Every Word

If you own a ‘smart’ TV, you may want to be careful about what you discuss in its presence. Smart TVs are designed with features similar to your smartphone—they are compatible with certain apps, able to connect to the internet and can even respond to voice commands. However, some of these TVs may be recording your conversations even when you are not issuing commands.

In a recent statement, Samsung announced that some of its smart TVs with voice recognition capabilities continuously record user conversations in order to build their libraries of user voices. These recorded conversations are then stored with a third party. However, Samsung stressed that it does not retain or sell the voice data that is collected to interested organisations.

While Samsung may not sell your recorded conversations, a determined cyber criminal could gain access to that library. Therefore, do not discuss any personal information—such as bank account numbers—in front of your smart TV. For more information about how you can protect your personal information, contact Bond Lovis Insurance Brokers today.
