05 Sep NSA Expert Says Smart Speakers Have Low Chance of Getting Hacked
NSA privacy expert Jake Williams recently told CNBC that there is a low chance that a hacker would hack into an average person’s smart speakers.
Williams explains that it would take a lot of work to get information that would not be worth it for the hacker, and the likelihood for a scammer to target a user’s banking information is much higher. He added that even if the user makes a purchase via the smart speaker, credit card details are stored in Google’s or Amazon’s server, so any compromise would not really be done from the end of the smart speaker.
He added that smart speakers are less vulnerable to hacking compared to computers and smartphones.
