    But hey guys, it's SCIENCE, and Science is the best thing to ever happen to humanity.😆.... We were better off being religious zeolots.... And that's extremely hard for me to say because I'm an Atheist but it's fuckin' true. I'm really regretting the way I treated religious people as of late because in many ways they're more right than I ever was regardless of whether I believe in it or not. Ignorance is truly bliss.... At least with religion I could act like I believe in it and not worry about being persecuted. How the fuck can a person hide from this?!... Thanks a lot Regressive Left😭🤣Silicon Valley is your overlord.... I'd much rather of had the imaginary one.

    @Thoughty2 While I'm an advocate for privacy and security. I also have mixed feelings about protection at the use breaking privacy. However, I deter from my original reasoning for this comment. I appreciate your insight on the vulnerabilities of IOT devices with no security standard that I will be performing some of my own pentests for my own IOT devices. I would also advise taking a look at your sponsors a bit carefully, as far as I can remember NordVPN was recently hacked and a lot of keys were stolen.

    "smart" devices should be largely abandoned. Anyone who believes that connecting their home appliances to the internet is worth the risk of doing so, does not possess the knowledge necessary to safely use any such devices. IoT devices should be abandoned. They are a novelty that essentially equates to removing all locks from your door and windows (figuratively speaking). People today willingly install audio and video monitoring devices in their homes that are connected to the internet. Any teenager with time on their hands could gain access to these devices. The idiocy in such a decision is mind boggling.

    Gee 42, the police in your country no longer wish to arrest pedofiles?
    Is that honor among thieves, or is it just the Queen swinging her balls. I think this would make a great video!

    I don't trust smart homes. As a computer information security and assurance major (with a computer science minor), I can predict some things that can go wrong:
    * A hacker injects malware into a smart home, thus can lock someone out, kill me, steal information, etc.
    * A single glitch could prevent all the interconnected devices from working correctly.
    * Someone could forget his or her password and thus be unable to enter his or her home (this is why house keys are a life send).
    * A smart house cod short circuit completely in the event of bad weather or when a Corona Mass Ejection from the sun hits where the house is. This means that the smart house is toast and will be expensive to either repair or replace.
    I could go on. Thoughty covered most of the same concerns I have. This is why I prefer normal, non-Internet of Things homes, cars, etc.

    Turn on your TV and your favorite program is loaded up. I never can figure out what i want to watch, or eat. So it knows and I don't . Maybe I've been looking at this all wrong.

    There's a flashdrive that geeksquad used to use (not sure if they still do), but these flashdrives had the program "Brute Force" which would, within minutes, crack passwords up to 20 characters.

    If there was a USB plugin, you could get on that computer, hack that router, or drive that car.
    My brother would use this on my laptop to load up Meat Spin or Lemon Party on the screen so when I logged in I got a pleasant surprise.

    We are turning into Wall-E we need to, stop using voice assistants. We need to stop making technology use lights, doors, and windows to be automated for us. We have to stop relying on robots and drones to do everything for us! Snap out of it guys! For f!#k sakes, stop trying to make your houses like this.

    appriciate your video, but Nord VPN got hacked recently, and all cheap Chinese device are knock offs or similar in hardware/software to the expensive ones as the expensive ones are manufactured in China and a lot of certification also done there:). If those high cost testing were applied by all firms there would be still hacked Sony/Microsoft etc... databases popping up every year as those who know how and love to do it will do it for the thrill of breaking into a well defended system imo. Still your content is a good advice and can make you a bit more confident you not getting hacked so if you can afford it buy reliable well known devices for sure:)

    Having your locks connected to the internet is about the most retarded thing I can think of. Hacking a wifi is laughably easy. Even thought I live in a country that's at the forefront of internet technology (Finland) I'll NEVER have a single "smart" device in my home. You're just asking to be fucked over. By criminals, companies selling your data or spied on by authorities for no reason.
