Date: Dec 2, 2019
Recently, popular products Google Home and Amazon Alexa got caught trying to steal passwords, and while it can be argued that this was carried out by third parties, it still showcases the risks with these devices.

While I normally would write more, I’m going to end this here, as most of the information I could note would be redundant, due to recent news. That is all for today, so keep an eye out for my next post.
