ACLU Warns Against Privacy-Invading Tech Gifts


The American Civil Liberties Union recently warned that a number of popular high tech gadgets being gifted this holiday season could potentially invade the recipient’s privacy.

The non-profit cautioned that smart speakers and devices like Alexa, Appleā€™s Homepod, or Google Home are essentially microphones that transmit your information and on occasion, can accidentally be woken up.

ACLU also said that fitness trackers and wearables such as FitBit collect a lot of very personal information from the user, and said that people should be very aware of the potential implications of using the technology.
