Your Smart TV could spying on you: FBI

PORTLAND, OREGON β€” The FBI warned consumers this week that their smart TVs may be collecting extensive data about them.

In a message to Christmas shoppers, the agency warned that smart TVs are vulnerable to cyberattacks.

This is because they are connected to the internet and include features such as microphones and cameras.

The FBI said that if a device is hacked, hackers could use these features to cyberstalk someone.

The bureau urged owners of smart TVs to take preventive actions against this by learning their devices' privacy settings and how to turn off its microphones and cameras.
