Google Home and Google Nest security checklist: Do this now to stop sharing private data
With Google Home or Google Nest, you’ve got an always-on artificially intelligent voice assistant in your home that regularly records audio and almost always sends it to Google. Are you really OK with that? It’s quite possible, through a combination of security settings and responsible privacy practices, to minimize the amount and kind of data you share with Google and still take advantage of the hands-free convenience Google Home affords. The key is knowing how much information your Google Home can live without and still work the way you want it to.
