Deactivate voice commands for smart TVs if you don’t use them

Some smart TVs can be controlled with simple voice commands. Voice makes it easier to change channels or open apps, while creating some new privacy risks. The TV itself might be constantly listening to your conversations to collect audio data and then sending this information to a server over an unencrypted connection. Turn off this voice-related features if you don’t absolutely need them.
