Wired‘s David Pierce reports on Google’s new OnHub WiFi router:
“We’re actually really proud of the work we’ve done around making sure OnHub is a trustworthy and secure member of your family,” [Google product manager Trond Wuellner] says. “We’ve drawn a very strong, hard and fast line around inspecting any information or websites about the content you’re looking at in your home.” There are settings in the app, too, that users can toggle on and off to determine what data is being shared.
Oh, there are settings that control what data is shared with Google. Well, then, that…
Wait, why would any data be shared with the maker of your router? Is that a thing we’re doing now? If so, let’s not do that particular thing anymore.
