Samsung's Smart TVs are listening to every word you say

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) Be careful what you say around your Samsung Smart TV...or even someone else's TV. In the small print of Samsung's privacy policy, the company warns that the voice recognition feature on its Smart TVs can capture your spoken words, including personal conversations, and that information is among other data passed on to third parties. The feature normally captures voice commands to improve your viewing experience. Samsung says data is only shared if consumers consent and if they turn on the voice feature. 

How do you know if the voice feature is on? A Samsung spokeswoman says users are able to recognize that the feature is activated because a microphone icon appears on the screen.
