Business PrivacySenator Proposes Mandatory Labeling For Products With a Mic or CameraOctober 9, 2019Business PrivacycameradisclosureIoTmicrophonesurveillancetransparency The Infinite BriefA newly proposed bill, called the Protecting Privacy in our Homes Act, would require labeling on products that include Internet-connected microphones or cameras. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) introduced the bill to the Senate. A rule such as the regulation Gardner proposes would help quash privacy incidents, such as the discovery earlier this year that Nest Secure devices had shipped with undisclosed microphones. The Senate, however, largely seems concerned with other issues this year, and GovTrack.us gives the PPHA a mere 3% chance of becoming law.
