Which? responds to MPs launching inquiry into smart home speakers and connected tech

Lisa Barber, Which? Computing Editor, said:
“While smart gadgets can offer convenience and benefits to many consumers, Which? research has found some smart tech could be putting consumer privacy or security at risk, so it’s encouraging that MPs intend to look into this issue.

“Having introduced the Product Safety and Telecommunications Bill, it is vital that the government now pushes forward to ensure devices meet certain security standards, backed by strong enforcement. In addition, online marketplaces and retailers must also be given additional obligations to ensure the safety and security of products sold on their sites, regardless of whether the seller is third-party.”
