SMART HOME DEVICES = SAY GOODBYE TO PRIVACY
For years, home automation and home monitor systems have been a nightmare for security and privacy. Hackers love doing smart home hack demos, often flicking lights on and off from miles away, and the patchwork nature of the devices means a setup is only as strong as its weakest link. The data collected by those devices is often some of the most sensitive data you have, leaving smart home device companies under the looming threat of a data breach. These devices can tell when you leave your house, when you fall asleep, and what you cook for dinner. In a fully connected home, almost everything you do leaves some kind of digital trace. And in most cases, that data is spread across multiple companies, leaving lots of opportunities for it to leak out.
SMART HOME DEVICES = SMART SPIES
By now, the privacy threats posed by Amazon Alexa and Google Home are common knowledge. Workers for both companies routinely listen to audio of users, recordings of which can be kept forever, and the sounds the devices capture can be used in criminal trials.
Now, there's a new concern: malicious apps developed by third parties and hosted by Amazon or Google. The threat isn't just theoretical. Whitehat hackers at Germany's Security Research Labs developed eight apps, four Alexa "skills" and four Google Home "actions", that all passed Amazon or Google security-vetting processes. The skills or actions posed as simple apps for checking horoscopes, with the exception of one, which masqueraded as a random-number generator. Behind the scenes, these "smart spies," as the researchers call them, surreptitiously eavesdropped on users and phished for their passwords.

Techology warning from the FBI.
Hackers can use that innocent device in your house to do a virtual drive-by of your private life.
Unsecured devices can allow hackers a path into your router, giving the bad guy access to
everything else on your home network that you thought was secure. Are cameras and microphones secure?
Is private information safely stored on your computer, or is it being passed around from server to server?
HOME SECURITY DEVICES, Digital Assistants, Smart Watches, Fitness Trackers, Thermostats,
Refrigerators, and even light bulbs are all on the list of potentially insecure devices.
The FBI offers several remedies. They're not all easily enacted:
1. Change the device's factory settings from the default password.
A simple Internet search should tell you how -- and if you can't find
the information, consider moving on to another product.
2. Many connected devices are supported by mobile apps on your phone.
These apps could be running in the background and using default permissions
that you never realized you approved. Know what kind of personal information
those apps are collecting and say "no" to privilege requests that don't make sense.
3. Secure your network, and restrict the information the devices can share.
If you don't want to try to secure your devices, don't say the FBI didn't warn you.
AMAZON'S SURVEILLANCE EMPIRE
Amazon's business model is all about using monopolistic practices to sweep up
and exploit data from our private and public lives. Their products record our conversations,
capture us on live camera feed, identify our faces, and track our movements. Amazon partners
with local police departments to build a nationwide surveillance network. And they contract with
election officials to provide services that allow them to access and store our voter registration and
voting history, including the candidates we voted for. Amazon is a threat to our homes, our rights,
and our democracy. We need to stop them in their tracks.
DANGERS OF AMAZON-POLICE SURVEILLANCE PARTNERSHIPS
In over 600 cities across the country, Amazon provides police departments with
warrantless access to request and store footage from Ring's doorbell cameras.
In exchange, local law enforcement use their platform, social media, and city events
to market Ring products and technology. The surveillance partnerships between police
and Amazon poses privacy, civil liberty, and security concerns. Amazon’s Ring-police
partnership best exemplifies their surveillance empire in action.
Threatens Our Civil Liberties
In the absence of clear policies to govern the use of surveillance data, once footage
is collected and stored, law enforcement can use it to conduct facial recognition searches,
target protesters exercising their First Amendment rights, or share with other agencies like ICE.
Such power without accountability disproportionately impacts black, brown, and low-income
communities already targeted and surveilled by law enforcement. Amazon subverts our
Fourth Amendment rights by giving law enforcement backdoor access to mass surveillance
footage without a warrant.
Threatens Our Privacy
Amazon's Ring doorbell cameras provide footage of millions of American families. They record
everything from baby in their crib to someone walking their dog to a neighbor playing with
young children in their yard—and other bystanders that don't know they are being filmed and
haven't given their consent. These cameras capture and store intimate, personal moments of our
lives that can be accessed by police en masse. It's only a matter of time before the police will have
direct access without request. Devices in Amazon smart homes have no opt-out feature. Recently,
Amazon recently experimented with a feature for 911 calls to trigger Ring doorbell cameras
to wake up and live stream for police use.
