  • New research indicates the answer is yes, they are collecting data, and some of them are gathering much more information than you think
  • Here's what we know:
  1. New research by Which? has revealed that smart household devices like smart doorbells, smart speakers, smart TVs, smart washing machines and more are capturing personal data on the user and sharing it with big tech companies like Google, Facebook, TikTok and more
  2. Most of them are using data that shows your specific interests to target you with ads on your smartphone and other devices
  3. The research group found that much more data was collected than needed to for the product to function properly
  4. In some cases, the data collection and usage were unwittingly authorized by the owner when they checked off the catch-all "agree to all terms" for the smart device
  5. Some of the info shared with other entities includes personal contact information, telephone numbers, home address, personal background 
  6. This is a consumer protection area that appears to need new scrutiny to determine that personal information is being ethically handled and securely protected
  7. Google and Amazon have clearly stated that they are handling such data ethically and protecting individual privacy.
