One of the biggest trends right now in technology seems to be smart speakers, such as the Amazon Echo, the Google Home, and Apple’s HomePod. They can do and answer so much for us. But should we trust them? They’re still an electronic device, and because you need to be able to converse with them, they have speakers and microphones. But that means potentially they can hear what you’re saying even when you’re not talking to them. Additionally, sometimes they may have unexpected situations, like with the HomePod, as it will allow just anyone to listen to your text messages.
