Connected toys have "proven" security issues



Consumer watchdog Which? has called on retailers to stop selling some popular toys it says have "proven" security issues.

 
Those toys include Furby Connect, the i-Que robot, Cloudpets and Toy-fi Teddy.


Which? found that there was no authentication required between the toys and the devices they could link with via Bluetooth.


Two of the manufacturers said they took security very seriously.
