As the smart home and connected toys become commercially available, it is important to consider privacy and IoT security. Virtual private network (VPN) service HideMyAss is just one company concerned with having so many household things being connected to the Internet.

In the Digital Age, it is more important than ever to teach young ones about online perils, which is why HideMyAss created this educational book. 'I Spy With My Little Eye: Things That Spy On Me' not only informs kids, it also alerts parents to the dangers of connected toys. Many connected devices are easy to hack, making your personal data, and that of your children, insecure. The book on IoT security covers 27 different devices and explains their vulnerabilities, hacker motives and preventative measures.
