Missing the point (2)
The real point of smartphone apps linked to IoT devices is this:
- Help Large Corporations to get more revenue than the (one time) sale of of a device provides.
- By providing a (continuing) stream of valuable marketing information till the device goes t*ts up
Why would any of these Large Corporations have the slightest interest in privacy or security?
It's a marketing (that word again) smoke screen!!!!
