BBC: MiSafes’ child-tracking smartwatches are ‘easy to hack’

BBC: MiSafes’ child-tracking smartwatches are ‘easy to hack’. “A location-tracking smartwatch worn by thousands of children has proven relatively easy to hack. A security researcher found the devices neither encrypted the data they used nor secured each child’s account. As a result, he said, he could track children’s movements, surreptitiously listen in to their activities and make spoof calls to the watches that appeared to be from parents.”
