Your smart TV is always spying on you. It sends data continuously without your consent. Below are some tips how to avoid getting tracked.
Use dongle or set-top box
This is the best option and it offers more features than a smart TV. Grab a dongle or a set-top box and start watching YouTube videos, Netflix movies and other streaming services similar to what a smart TV offers. It comes far cheaper than a smart TV too and with better interfaces.
Watch on a dumb TV
A dumb TV will never track you and send data as it can’t connect to the internet. Use streaming device with it and start enjoying like a smart TV. It too is lot cheaper than a smart TV.
Turn off Wi-Fi
The best thing to do if you own a smart TV now is to turn off your Wi-Fi. This will not allow the TV to send data to companies.
Get Vizio Smart TV
Vizio TV is first in the industry to come with tracking turned off by default. This mean the device will never send data to companies without your consent. You can turn off by following the below steps:
Click on the Menu button first from your remote and open the HDTV Settings app. Following it go to System and then choose Reset & Admin. Here you need to look for Smart Interactivity and press on the right arrow of it to set tracking off or on.
