PYMNTS: From IoT Vulnerabilities? The FTC Weighs In

IoT seems virtually impossible to ignore these days, not that you’d purposely be trying to. IoT has the potential to improve lives, relieve workloads and, yes, cook for you. Sort of — it’s still early yet for actual IoT culinary offerings — but there are now connected devices in homes that come with Wi-Fi connectivity and can be controlled by mobile apps, which are likely the precursors of connected kitchens of the future. In short, many current IoT devices have capabilities right out of a James Bond movie and they’re on our wrists, as well as enabling billboards and aboard drones. We are living in an exciting time for rapidly developing innovation, and connectivity is playing a crucial role.
