EPIC testified before the Consumer Product Safety Commission at the hearing on "The Internet of Things and Consumer Product Hazards." EPIC International Law Counsel Sunny Kang urged the Commission to focus on privacy and security. EPIC's Kang told the Commission that "IoT is the weakest link to privacy and security vulnerabilities in consumer products." EPIC recommended baseline rules for IoT device manufacturers adopted by the UK government in a recent report on privacy and security for IoT devices. EPIC and a coalition of consumer groups previously urged the Commission to recall the Google Home Mini device which was designed to always record conversations.
