Google Planning Line of Products To Watch EVERYTHING You Do In Your Home 24/7

How would you feel if you knew that your Google Home was monitoring your mood, your movements, and even your child’s behavior? Well, according to a series of new patents, this the company’s newest marketing mission…

The idea that your smart devices are always watching you could take on an entirely new meaning with a proposed line of products from Google that intentionally monitor everything you do in your home. 

According to a series of patents from the tech giant, Google plans to roll out a new line of sensors and cameras that would watch you inside your home 24/7. The technology would also have the power to scan the clothes you are wearing and estimate your income and tastes based on electronic devices in your home. It would then use that information to advertise products. 

But it wouldn’t stop there… Google also wants to monitor everything your children say and do with a line of occupancy sensors that constantly watch your children and keep track of where they are in the home at all times. And even if you don’t have Google cameras installed throughout your house, the audio sensors on the Smart Home device will still be able to track your current mood based on the tone of your voice, follow which room of the house you are in, and even monitor how often you brush your teeth, just by recording the everyday sounds in your house. 

Now, Google is claiming that the intentional surveillance of everything you do in the privacy of your own home would be for both safety and targeted marketing purposes. BUT what if all of that private information got into the wrong hands?

Facebook is no stranger to privacy scandals, despite recording a wealth of private information from its 2.7 billion users. It still has yet to face consequences after the personal data from at least 87 million of those users was shared with a British political consulting firm and exploited without their consent.

In an unprecedented move, Parliament has stepped in and seized a number of documents that are said to detail communications between Facebook executives about the leak. Reports have claimed that the emails show Mark Zuckerberg and other executives knew about flaws in Facebook’s privacy policy that allowed its users to be exploited… and they did nothing to stop it.

Not only is this intimate information about our private lives at risk of being compromised by hackers, but it could also just as easily be accessed by the U.S. government… leading to an even more powerful surveillance state that could turn on you at any moment.
