Eh, redundant.  If you have a computer in China it's likely already bugged.

I wish Samsung hadn't wasted an entire farking button for their dumb personal assistant. At the very least give me the option of assigning a different task to it.

Just yelling at clouds here, but y'all do know anyone with security experience can and probably has done analysis of smart speakers, right?

They're not listening to anything you say that doesn't start with a wake word and end 20 seconds later.

Samsung is basically as locked down as Apple. And they want desperately to have all their own BS. If you must use them, you should at least root so you can uninstall their BS and reassign that button.

But really, use this as a lesson in why not to buy Samsung.

I wonder what wake words the chinese government would like Baidu to add to the thing via innocuous software updates over time.
