Most mobile applications ‘listen’ to our private talks thanks to microphones, so companies must be more transparent when it comes to informing users because there are two different interests, the user’s privacy and the value of the words we say, once converted in interests in any product to be sold.

The lack of clarity with which this type of access is being requested is the big problem in every app’s install, such as access to the microphone or camera.

To prevent the sound of the microphone from being heard, there is no more solution than accessing the configuration of the applications at least once a month and reviewing them regularly, looking for permissions: The user has to have that awareness and companies won’t help him, but the opposite.

All of these doubts arise after this week’s controversy once again arose after discovering that a kitchen robot included a hidden microphone that its users were not informed about.
