Will Consumer Privacy Exist In The Smart World Of The Future?
With the increase in the number of connected devices, our homes are no longer a safe sanctuary. While a connected home was designed to make life easier and offer increased convenience, more and more instances of breaches are getting reported.
From thermostats to baby monitors, intruders can gain access from anywhere. We also need to keep in mind that smart devices contain sensitive information like passwords and payment card information.
Hacking personal information could have a bigger impact, especially if the login credentials are used in other places as well. This domino effect lets hackers expose many user accounts if the credentials are similar.
Situations like these raise the question if privacy exists in the smart world? Amazon Ring breach told us that the team had access to all the videos ever created by Ring cameras. The employees were even provided access to live feeds.
Many consumers do not consider the impact that turning on a Google Home device or allowing Alexa to be your digital assistant can have from a privacy and security standpoint.
While many users have theoretical knowledge about safety and privacy, hardly anyone takes steps towards it. It feels like convenience has become more important than privacy and safety.
