Germany’s telecommunications regulatory, Federal Network Agency (FNA) banned smartwatches for children as they record conversations and gives location access to hackers.

The FNA classified the smartwatches as “prohibited listening devices.”

Earlier this month, European Consumer Organization (BEUC) put an announcement stating that privacy of the children using smartwatches is at risk as it allows hackers to track the location and also listen to their conversation.
