Is your smart device spying on you

Steve said the major tech companies claim to store this data so they can improve the services they provide, but that's not the only reason.

"All of that information has got a back door that goes out to governments all around the world."

"This information can be unduly used against you, because they can make false accusations or false perceptions."

Steve discusses some solutions, and measures you can take to protect your privacy.
