Privacy Assistants for the Smart Home

15 July 2019

Have you ever wondered what data your smart home devices were collecting, and where they were sending it? We are conducting a study to evaluate a prototype that helps tackle these problems by keeping track of who your smart devices communicate with, as well as giving you the information you need to understand and contextualise this information.
