Parents are being warned about a doll many girls have – My Friend Cayla!
That’s because hackers can use an unsecured bluetooth device that is embedded in the toy to listen and talk with your child as they are playing with the doll.
Advocates for child safety are encouraging parents to get rid of it right away. Tech experts say hackers can eavesdrop on your child, and speak to them through the doll.
My Friend Cayla isn’t the only doll that came under scrutiny. There were similar concerns with Hello Barbie two years ago.
Smart technology on kids toys aren’t the only concern for consumers. Devices like Google Home and Amazon’s Echo are marketed to adults. These devices and hackers could be listening to your every word.
