      Thumbs up if you got an ad for some kind of always listening device before the video. Thank you for taking time to watch. When I read the paper I knew I had to make a video about this. I hope you enjoy it. If you feel like this has earned your support, the Patreon link is here and I'd be grateful.

        It's advisible to hire a white hat hacker, Darin Adler on Instagram got me access to a locked IPhone, check him out

        ​@J S It's usually done with the laser's reflection from a window's glass, but technically, yes, any reflective surface which can vibrate sufficiently should work. Also, newer laser microphone prototypes have been developed and demonstrated which can also pick up sound via plants, vapor or smoke, or a bag of potato chips (or, if located in the UK, a bag of potato crisps). The original form is probably from around 1947, but this devices just used a beam of infrared light (lasers weren't invented yet). Microwave radiation can be used to pick up sound from or through walls (doppler radar).

        Absolutely I was talking to wife asking to get onions from the store, next ad on my phone was the benefits of onion juice on Facebook. Big brother is always listening

    2. Live Streams 2021

      what software is used to push the raw or wav sound to the laser head ?

    3. Mike Perrett

      Interesting, if for example on an Amazon Echo device you press the button to disable the microphone, does this prevent this kind of MEMs attack?

    4. Deejay JeanP

      I had to verify my voice with my phone number after you said "Hey Google"

      17:30 the difference between something that might fail and something that couldnt possibly fail is that when the thing that couldnt possibly fail fails it often turns out to be impossible to get at and repair

    11. Yvan Harvey

      Very good video. You some it up nicely. Never buy a new product without seeing the proof that they effective. Which is a problem with cars because they change so fast. And any devices as matter of fact.

    12. Zhaoze Wang

      It would be crazy if you could do that with an invisible light, like an infrared or ultraviolet light or something.

      "I don't think people are like, crazy vulnerable" Opens locks with light. You're right, doesn't sound too vulnerable to me. I'll stick to mechanical locks for me though, thanks.

    16. Linrox

      Personally i would never have any AI system in my home. All the assistant AI are completely insecure, not just for smart thieves but also for governments. smart homes are not smart.

      At 8:51 in the video it set my thermostat to 70 degrees bc my phone was by the computer! =:-O So I thought these things were supposed to learn different voices, aka NOT respond to other people? Since this is more than a year old, has any of them fixed this security issue?
