Connected Tech Raises Privacy Fears

Connected Tech Raises Privacy Fears

At this year's consumer electronics show in Las Vegas, connecting more devices to the internet was one of the main themes.

Throughout the show, high-tech firms released products that can gather and share data about what their owners do.

Smart lighting systems, Skype-connected baby monitors, a Bluetooth- enabled meat thermometer and smart ovens were all unveiled at the Las Vegas show, suggesting that such devices are about to become everyday household items.

Throughout the show, high-tech firms released products that can gather and share data about what their owners do.

Marc Rogers, principal research analyst at mobile security firm Lookout, said: "Dealing with the privacy and security aspects of the internet of things is going to be one of the biggest challenges we have faced in security for a long time.

"These technologies will be some of the most intimate we have ever had.

"We are going to be wearing it, installing it throughout our living spaces and other places where technology has not usually had the opportunity to go."
