My question would be, even if one didn’t enable the voice recognition, does that guarantee privacy? I don’t trust ‘em. I feel like any electronic devices are bad news. If they’re not spying, they’re emitting radiation, which, I’ve just been advised by someone researching this field, scrambles our aura—BIG time. ~ BP
Samsung SmartTVs can collect and transmit spoken words, personal information, and sensitive data to 3rd party sourcesFebruary 5, 2015

(INTELLIHUB) — Smart TVs may be getting too smart as some now actually collect and transmit your spoken words, personal information, and sensitive data to other 3rd party sources.
The days of personal privacy are overNot only do SmartTVs collect and transmit “information about content that you have watched, purchased, downloaded, or streamed” they also use advanced “voice recognition” technology to better interact with you. However this technology comes at a price which you now may be paying with your freedom.
It’s also important to further note that Samsung SmartTVs come embedded with a video camera that capture your physical “gestures” and also utilize advanced “facial recognition” systems which allow “you to authenticate your Samsung Account or to log into certain services”. Moreover “once you complete the steps required to set up facial recognition, an image of your face is stored locally on your TV”, Samsung says.
