The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) has found that 71 percent of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and services used by Australians failed to adequately explain how personal information was collected, used, and disclosed.

According to Australian Privacy Commissioner Timothy Pilgrim, the seamless nature of how IoT devices collect, store, and share user information means that customers are not always fully aware of the privacy risks.
