Mozilla has compiled an amazing guide that shows you just how safe (or unsafe) your data is when using various smart devices, Via Mozilla.org
How creepy is that smart speaker, that fitness tracker, those wireless headphones? We created this guide to help you shop for safe, secure connected products.
The full list of items including apple smart watches, Eufy security cams, Peloton Tread and much more is here! Check out their review of the Jabra Elite 85T
If you’re more the sporty type or if you just don’t like wearing big, over the ear headphones, these little earbuds might be for you. They do all the things: noise cancelling, custom sound levels for music, multiple microphones for calls, filtering out noise, and listening for you to ask Alexa, Siri, or Google to play that next song with 25-hours of battery life. All shoved right into your ears. These earbuds are truly small, truly wireless, and truly easy to lose.
What could happen if something goes wrong
Jabra does a great job with privacy and security because they are old school. They sell hardware. Not you. This means they don’t collect any personal information on you. And they don’t share data with third-parties or sell it ever. They even have two privacy policies. One is a general statement of privacy and one covers their app. Good work Jabra!
