In the beginning of February, the Top Secret Colonial officers hacked into a Furby Connect. Furby Connect is a children’s toy that is now on sale. These new Furbies have a new feature that has Bluetooth connection. While it seems like a cool new product it is product along with many other children’s toys and new appliances that are putting your personal life into danger.
Most people do not realize that having that having all these products hooked up to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection is giving anyone access basically into your home. While these new children’s toys may be convenient and easy to keep your child entertained. They keep all this information stored every time it is being used. Hackers can end up getting your mailing address, e-mail, internet history, your birthday and even the child’s birth date, video recordings and pictures of the child or anything else. It is kind of like giving your child a camera that is on record the whole time and tracks everything you do. It is just like your cell phones, they recommend wiping your whole phone once you are done with it. It is definitely something to think about while you are connecting any devices up to unsecured networks.
