Samsung Recording your Home Conversations

It is not just Samsung, it is all the smart televisions, tablets, cell phones, and connected devices. The capabilities built into these devices to spy on us are scary if one is really concerned about their privacy. The Samsung SmartTV terms include use of every means available to collect data. The better option would be to use a separate box with such feature and not connect this television to your network. Boycotting Samsung would be an option if the other manufacturers displayed more respect of the customer’s privacy but that is not the case. Most people are choosing the awesome features over their concern for having privacy. Somehow this technology becomes hacked and you speak your credit card number over the phone, oops. There are many ways these devices can become disastrous to a person’s life.

Samsung Global Privacy Policy - SmartTV Supplement “… Samsung may collect and your device may capture voice commands and associated texts so that we can provide you with Voice Recognition features and evaluate and improve the features. Samsung will collect your interactive voice commands only when you make a specific search request to the Smart TV by clicking the activation button either on the remote control or on your screen and speaking into the microphone on the remote control. … To provide you with the ability to control your SmartTV through gestures, the camera mounted on the top of your SmartTV can recognise your movements. This enables you, for example, to move between panels and zoom in or zoom out. We record information about when and how users use gesture controls so that we can evaluate the performance of these controls and improve them. …”
