Experts have issued a warning over smart speakers, as they say that the devices are 'always on, always listening and sometimes watching'.

Smart speakers - which primarily play music - are clever devices which can source information from the web and can even do your online shopping for you.

While they are no-doubt convenient, the cybersecurity experts from VPNOverview have warned of privacy risks associated with owning a smart speaker.

The experts explain that it's easy to accidentally 'wake' these speakers, so people should remain cautious. From unintentional online purchases to opening the door to hackers, certain smart speaker mistakes could prove to be risky.
