Illinois legislators want to protect smart devices users’ privacy

The Protecting Household Privacy Act would require makers of smart devices to tell customers how their information is shared.

The Senate measure would also require law enforcement to get a court order to access someone’s household data. Police would have to destroy any data within 30 days, unless, for example, there is “reasonable suspicion that the information contains evidence of criminal activity,” according to the measure.
