After a recent FBI warning, consumers who bought or want to buy a smart TV have to reconsider.
In an official statement, the FBI in Portland, Oregon, said a number of new smart TVs with built-in cameras were filming and recording what it was about, according to Fox News.
Some TVs are called smart because they can be connected to the Internet and allow you to enjoy a number of popular web applications and streaming services directly.
According to the FBI, "TV manufacturers and application developers may be watching and listening to you through the camera and microphone built into the TV."
But the most dangerous thing is that TV can be a gateway for hackers into your home, which could eventually lead to hacking your computer or personal phone connected to the same network.
The question now is:
The FBI says consumers should conduct a simple Internet search on the type of TV they buy, to learn more about camera, microphone and privacy systems.
Do not rely on the default security settings in the device itself, according to the advice of the Office, which also recommends the need to change the password constantly.
A simple and manual solution is to place a lid on the camera and the built-in microphone of the TV, to avoid watching you while watching it.
