Mozilla has released a list of well-known daily use gadgets on its site. This list has been released just to look out how creepy those products are. There are a lot of creepy rated devices and some of them seem to be wonderful and you can gift them to your loved ones as well. The products are smart speakers, security cameras, doorbells, nest cams, dog cameras, and so many others on that list.
Let’s see what devices have got creepy ratings. For example, we take a smart coffee maker. It has got a creepy rating because of its critical assurances about data protection. The same thing happened in the case of Moleskine’s smart notebook. It has got a creepy rating as it has no proper security as well as the data protection is not up to the mark. Like data security, protection, these are the main things if someone is buying a smart gadget. So, the company needs to address these things to get to avoid a creepy rating.
These rankings by Mozilla are based on the potential for breach of your data. Like in this case, if a device gets no creepy rating, it does not mean that in that particular device your data is perfectly safe or private. There can be issues in the future. So, it is good not to trust in these types of things 100%. Because these stuff like the creepy ratings are mostly depending on the potential of that product. So, what a buyer needs to do is that when he/she choose to buy any of these products, those need to get scrutinized n terms of settings and preferences. So, it is better to think before as it is almost impossible to retrieve your data without damaging your product.
