I laugh at people when they say google does not steal photos and files from your devices. If they dont.. Why in the hell do they put up You Tube videos and web pages telling you how to block them from doing so??
That is what Windows 10 was develope for.
Take a Samsung Android phone for example.. In the settings every single app must be allowed or blocked for google and anyone you contact access to your device.
It is not only phones and computers. Smart TV's that are voice activated can be monitered also. Installed a Sumsung tv for a lady and it actually stated in the manual that it can be spied on by third member parties. So anything said within ear shot of the tv can be heard by someone somewhere in the world.
Thank that your smart tv sping on you is BS???https://www.wired.com/2017/02/smart-tv-spying-vizio-settlement
