How Much Do Americans Care About The Data Collected From Their Smart Speakers?
Most Americans feel uncomfortable having their private conversations revealed without their permission. Both Google and Facebook are under scrutiny for having their smart speakers and other devices to eavesdrop on conversations. While everyone agrees that smart speakers make life easy, not everyone is happy with their data with government and private companies. Most users believe that they would be much happier if they had some control over the data that smart home devices collect.
In general, the more protected you keep your information, the less susceptible you’ll be to hackers. The problem is, people let their guard down at home. Americans feel defensive and violated at the thought of private conversations being used for research purposes.
The data collected by companies is used to improve the tech, upgrade models, and fix issues. The government uses the data to improve public safety among other things. Almost 50% of Americans are not happy for companies to share their information with the police, but they also believe that if the government is collecting data to prevent terrorist attacks, it is acceptable. You can stay safe by customizing your smart device’s settings, mute it, and delete the stored data.
