While you watch your television, your television may be watching you.

The potential for TVs to eavesdrop is revealed in Samsung’s smart TV privacy policy available on its website.

“Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party through your use of Voice Recognition,” the policy said.

The story goes on to say that Samsung claims this is to improve television performance and that it takes privacy very seriously (takes it right away from you and keeps it for itself, that is).

Do read the rest, then get a dumb TV. If do you get a smart TV, remember, no canoodling on the couch in the TV Room; some Samsung tech might be canoodling right along with you.
