Before you invest in that vibrating Bluetooth butt plug, a word of warning: Use password protection, and don’t choose an idiot configuration like 0000 or 1234. Because the future is now, and anyone can hack into anything. See where this is going?
Modern toys can be downright fun. Wires are such a nuisance, and sex toys that can be controlled remotely via smartphone apps are both kinky and convenient. However, IFLScience recently reported on an experiment conducted by the cybersecurity nerds at Pen Test Partners. The kids bought themselves a “smart” (Bluetooth) butt plug to analyze it for vulnerabilities (accessibility, password protection, etc). Then they hit the streets of Berlin to test out users’ blind spots to sex toy cybersecurity. Most of the toys they came across were not PIN protected or had inanely simple PINs.
