He continued, “As of the 7th May following a software update to our less than two-year old LG TV, I was confronted with a message asking me to read and agree with a couple of important new documents. So like a good little citizen I read and agreed with the first doc regarding use of said TV. But having read the Privacy Doc I was not best pleased with the company’s assumption that I would simply agree to their sharing all our intimate viewing details (plus whatever else they can see) with all and sundry.”
This isn’t the first time LG has been accused of messing with users’ privacy on its Smart TVs. A previous report revealed that LG was collecting far more data from its TVs, without the user’s knowledge, including data taken from third-party devices connected to the TV for content-watching purposes.
