More concerns about your smart TV.

As it turns out, it's tracking a lot more than what you're watching.

Samba TV is technology that can ID not only what channels you like, but what you're asking Google Home, and what you're browsing on your phone.

And they can target you with ads based on what you like.

If you aren't OK with this, Consumer Reports has guides that explain how to change your settings, without having to reset your TV.
