Other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party through your use of Voice Recognition.
It sounds like something straight out of George Orwell's 1984.
But it's a bit overblown.
Most Android devices and even the Microsoft Connect have similar always on listening features.
Plus the problem only effects certain Samsung TV's.
that include a microphone and build in camera such as this 60 inch plasma from 2013.
While most of Samsung's smart TV's do have some sort of voice feature almost all of them including this 4k model from 2014 require you to press a microphone button on the remote before it starts listening.
Regardless, if you're scared that Samsung and some third party are listening to your conversation, you can easily turn off the voice recognition feature.
Go to the menu and select smart features.
Then simply scroll to voice recognition and switch it off.
You will no longer be able to use the hi TV command to activate voice features.
But you can still use them by pressing the microphone button on your remote.
