Unfortunately, little do most of us know that many of the things that we use on a regular basis, such as our smart TVs, are being used to gather information about ourselves, our habits, and (gasp!) even our most closely-guarded secrets.

That’s what Samsung inadvertently warned us about in their Smart TV’s Privacy Policy: their smart TVs may be eavesdropping on us.
