Amazon & Microsoft use appliances and toys to spy on families worldwide
Say goodbye to privacy and hello to Big Brother, soon every home appliance you purchase will spy on us. The list of home appliances that use Amazon's Alexa, Google Home, Samsung's 'SmartThings hub' and Amazon's Fire TV is growing at a disturbing pace.
Private companies are using our refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, toaster, water heater, air conditioner, ceiling fan, washer and dryer, electrical outlets, light bulbs and lamps to spy on us inside our homes. (LG's 'Instaview' refrigerators have Alexa installed in them.)
