Sex dolls are in demand. The demand for them is rising with every passing day. People use sex dolls or robots to fill the gap of intimacy in their lives, But while the demand for robots continues to grow, modern cyber-security has not kept the pace with it. Technology is never perfect and the moment we discover something revolutionary, the loopholes pop out. Experts believe that even these sex dolls are not completely safe.
Cyber-security experts believe that hackers could corrupt the vulnerable dolls and turn them into dangerous machines. And moreover hacking a sex robot would be a piece of cake compared to more advanced gadgets such as smartphones or desktop computers.
Hackers could gain control of the robot’s motor functions which could have deadly Terminator-style consequences. Once a robot is hacked, the hacker has full control and can issue instructions to the robot. The robots work on the operating system just like a phone or PC. And if that system is ever connected to the internet, then it becomes possible for hackers to break into it.
With the microphones and cameras connected to the dolls, hackers could record the activity with the robot and the user can easily be blackmailed.
However, as a rule of thumb, anyone buying smart technology should ensure some safety tips. Whatever device you’re buying should have a method to explicitly set your password, and don’t rely on the default. Change your password. With this, you can at least be on the safer side because smart technology is not very smart. What do you think about this?
