"“The more we delegate, the more there is opportunity for hackers that make it a valuable target,” said Jennifer King, director of consumer privacy at Stanford’s Center for Internet and Society.

“The second you use some software to link everything to your house to some online account to something else, then it becomes valuable — in ways we don’t necessarily see, but hackers can definitely find those connections and try to figure out a way to exploit it," King said."
