The FBI's out with a warning about the increasingly popular smart toys on the market. They could be putting your children at risk.
FOX's Gary Baumgarten reports:
Today, more and more people are buying their children so-called smart toys that connect to the internet. The kids, typically, interact with the toys.
But, says FBI special agent Garret Croon, that also potentially exposes our children to predators:
(Croon) "Your children maybe speaking to the toys, or could be background noise. Those audio recordings or video recordings are sent to a database somewhere in the sky which could be hacked by someone."
Croon says parents should make certain the toys are only connected to the internet through secure Wi-Fi access points.
And make sure you actually read the privacy policies before letting your children use the toys.
