Our modern tech-life creates more and more security and privacy threats. Most ordinary people have no idea about the implications which affect all of us. Everybody is installing hordes of connected smart devices like web cams, access-points, thermometers, speakers (e.g. Amazon Echo), light bulbs, etc. in their homes. But: Are they aware what it means to have all these devices that talk to the outside world?
The people from Kurzgesagt (“In a nutshell”), a German animation company that creates wonderful explanatory videos (check out their Youtube channel!), have created a nice video that we tech people can now share with our non-tech peers to educate them.
The video will still not enable mom and dad to fix these issues themselves (we still need to take care of that), but they are at least aware of the situtation!
