2 Smart Speakers
Smart speakers are great, as many proud owners of Amazon Echo and Google Home can attest. You can play music by issuing voice commands, and sometimes, they may even help you solve murders. But other times, they can help make your life worse. Smart speakers are privy to your private conversations and the personal information you reveal in casual conversation at home, including your daily routine. If you use smart speakers to make online purchases, it also holds your credit card and other financial information, which hackers can access if they manage to break in. Be sure to keep a strong passcode on your smart speaker’s account, and don’t use that same password across other accounts. It’s also good practice to simply be mindful of the information you share near your smart speaker because it’s not possible to tell who (or what) might be listening.
