WeMo Mini Smart Outlet

Remember the clapper? That wonderful device from last century that turned your lights on and off with clap of your hands. It’s 2018 and the clapper is all grown up into a “connected smart plug.” Plug the outlet into your wall and you can control it with your voice using Alexa or Google Assistant, set up custom on/off schedules on a phone app, even randomize your lights going on and off to make it look like you're home. All that’s missing is the catchy jingle — Clap on, clap off…

Shares your information with 3rd parties for unexpected reasons
No
Nearly every company collects some kind of information on its users. That’s how the internet works. It’s how they use and care for this information that matters. You should know whether a company shares or sells your personal information to others and for what reasons. For the purpose of this report Mozilla determined that if according to a company’s privacy policy, it appeared to share data with third parties that could then use that information to market or advertise to customers, then we labeled it as “Shares information with third parties for unexpected reasons.” This does not mean your information is definitely used for these purposes. Simply that the policy leaves the possibility open your information could be used in this way.
