Smart devices easy to hack

Smart devices to carry warning labels telling buyers how easy they are to hack, government says

All smart TVs and devices will have to come with warning labels telling buyers how easy they are to hack, the Government has said.

Under new proposals outlined today internet-connected products could be banned in the UK if they fail to tell consumers whether they meet basic security standards.

The new Secure by Design code, which is being consulted on, comes as the Government warned many smart devices “lack even basic security provisions”.

The regulations will cover all internet-connected household devices from children’s toys and baby monitors to smart watches, speakers and home assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa.
