Could Your Smoke Detector Steal Your Identity?

Ever get the feeling you’re being watched? The answer is probably yes. Most of your online life is likely being tracked and recorded by someone somewhere every single moment. It’s almost impossible to walk down a street without that innocent behavior being caught on camera. And even your phone is probably tracking your every movement if you’ve got something as simple as geo location switched on.

But what about in your own home? Your TV, your refrigerator, even your smoke alarm? Are they in on this surveillance thing too? The answer is yes, and while it might not be happening in your home, right now, it could happen soon. Because it’s already happened to others.

Welcome to the Internet of Things, or IoT, the latest and maybe scariest battlefront between you and those who seek to snoop on or hack your life.
