In this era, our devices have become smart due to technology and artificial intelligence. Today the trend of smart TV and smart home appliances has increased significantly. Apart from big cities, Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities are also becoming increasingly popular in smart TVs and smart home devices. As much as these smart devices make our work easy, the risk of leaking personal information from these devices also remains. If you also use or are going to use these devices, then read the information carefully.
Technology researchers have recently revealed that smart TV and smart home devices are sharing personal information of users such as location etc. to the third party. Due to the increasing trend of consumer devices, personal information of users is reaching the big marketing companies, who are using this information of the users. These connected devices are leaking data from users. These devices include Smart TV, Smart Home devices and TV streaming devices as well. Researchers claim that the information of users using all TV devices is reaching Netflix, while no device has a Netflix account configured.
This report has been prepared by researchers after testing about 81 devices in the US and UK. According to the Financial Times report, Google, Facebook and Amazon these days are keeping an eye for any kind of user information leaking from such devices. However, the amount of loss that users have suffered due to this data leaks has not been revealed. In such a situation, if you also use such smart devices, then go to Settings and turn off the location so that your information does not reach the third party.
