    There has been a lot of controversies these past few days because of iRobots’ alleged plans to sell the data that Roomba vacuum cleaner collects from the house.

    On the opposite side, Apple has confirmed that they will neither sell nor use the home data they collect from HomePod.

    How should companies with large amounts of data protect their customers’ privacy? Do they have the right to sell all that data freely, or should it be regulated?

    ‘Should companies be forced to protect their customer’s privacy?’
    Probably, but choosing to sell them our data in exchange of their products/services still seems cheap for most people nowadays. IMO, while that fact doesn’t change (by realizing how wickedly our data can be used), these kinds of situations are globally unstoppable and each person has to watch their back individually.
