Nor­way says ‘no way’ to ju­nior smart­watches


Computer Shopper - - RANTS & RAVES -

The Nor­we­gian Con­sumer Coun­cil has taken a look at smart­watches aimed at chil­dren and found that they pose a se­cu­rity and pri­vacy risk right on the wrist.

“It’s very se­ri­ous when prod­ucts that claim to make chil­dren safer in­stead put them at risk be­cause of poor se­cu­rity and fea­tures that do not work prop­erly,” said Finn Myrstad, di­rec­tor of dig­i­tal pol­icy at the Nor­we­gian Con­sumer Coun­cil.
