Samsungs warning – Shhh, your TV can hear you

Smart TV’s are soon in everyone’s home. It might not be the most recent kind with voice command which lets you control your TV by speaking to it instead of by using a classic remote control, and that might be a good thing!

At first everything about this new feature seemed just fine, then one sentence buried deep into the Samsung Smart TV Privacy Policy changed everything. In the text Samsung states that the TV might record more than just your voice commands to control what’s being played on the device and information recorded can be sold to third parties.

“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,”

So a word of warning before you start discussing to personal things around your Samsung TV, it might be listening a bit too much.
