Bitdefender researchers examined the security stance of four Internet-connected consumer devices. The team scrutinized the way each device connects to the Internet and to the cloud, as well as the communication between the device and corresponding mobile application.

Results show that current authentication mechanisms of internet-connected devices can still be bypassed to expose households and their inhabitants to discomfort, mass surveillance, privacy exposure and data theft.
