Do you like streaming your favorite movies or shows on your smart TV? How about browsing the Internet, sending messages or even gaming? If you’re like a lot of people, you find that a smart TV is a great way to access and view content and use other Internet-enabled options on the big screen.
But did you know that using a smart TV also introduces risks? Every time you use a smart TV, you’re exposed to the same risks you are when browsing online. It’s also possible your Internet service provider is collecting revealing information about your viewing habits and behavior. This data may even be sold to third parties for advertising or other purposes! The same can happen with apps you install on your smart TV – they may be collecting data about you and compromising your privacy.
Content is sometimes restricted based on geo-locations around the world, impacting your ability to stream and view what you want. Golden Frog believes in a free and open Internet devoid of censorship and location-based restrictions. We believe this Internet experience should be available to users around the world when using all devices, including smart TVs.
