We have a strange story coming out of Germany about some kind of ban on smart watches.

The claim is they are unauthorized transmitters !!

Parents are being directed to destroy the things !!

Is this even true?

If so, sounds to me like somebody is scared of something !!

Apparently an agency named "Bundesnetzagentur" (aka "Federal Network Agency") has issued a press release.....

Bundesnetzagentur geht gegen Kinderuhren mit Abhörfunktion vor

Thaaay haff theirrr ordeaz !!

Germany bans kids smartwatches, asks parents to destroy them


Germany’s Telecoms regulator the Federal Network Agency (The Bundesnetzagentur) which oversees the country’s telecommunications has banned smartwatches for kids in the country calling them spying devices. It has also urged parents to destroy these watches mostly used by children between the ages of 5 and 12 years.

The decision came months after the agency banned “My Friend Cayla Doll” citing that the smart toy conducts surveillance, listens to kids conversations and responds to them in real-time. Bundesnetzagentur described the doll as an authentic example of “unauthorized wireless transmitting equipment.”

In the latest decision, the agency also described these watches as “unauthorized transmitters.” Bundesnetzagentur President Jochen Homann stated, “According to our investigations, parents were using the watches, for example, to listen in on teachers during class.”

Everything you buy to protect your family will be made illegal, we can't have parents getting real evidence about governments miss-behaving.

Where would it all end.

How did we let it get to the stage where the Government is spying on you from every damn camera and more to come ... and we can't record them because ... law.

Where will it end?

Very interesting. All kinds of devices prepping society to spy on each other these days, until zero-privacy becomes normalized.

That is exactly what they're doing. Trying to create 'Their perfect Utopian Society' so that they can use us to spy on each other for them. They are cowards in my book, cowards and losers.

It almost appears that this society is promoting a loss of personal privacy nowadays. Everyone has a camera built into their phone, the poles often have cameras on the streets and there is surveillance in many businesses and hotels. Monitors and computers have cameras built in. Someone who can hack well can get control of these. Hey google is always listening. I actually do not think all of this is good, we can be spied on multiple ways. Drones can spy on us from our windows and satelites can watch us in our house. not good.

In the case of Germany, the German government does not want the people knowing what they are conditioning their kids to be like in school. It is turning into a country that wants complete control over everyone like it has done in the past. The Germans may be somewhat intelligent but it seems like their government does not hire the smart ones, they want people that will do what they tell them....they call it kissing *** here in America. Our government also likes people like that.

I dont really trust the German Government either. Look what they've done in the past 5 years? Too many incompatible cultures forced to live side by side. Rapes going up, Women being supressed by Men from a Country not their own. I just hope they're not doing this so there are less people reporting illegal activities. Merkle hates everyone under her, she would never make life easier for Germans, only worse.

Do you trust any government? The German government is no different to yours or mine.

No, I don't. But we're talking about Germany in this thread. And that is what I was responding to.

The only way for the people to even the balance of power is for us to all work together, so a realistic view is there is nothing we can do, other than watch and wait.

FYI: We are NOT talking about Apples iWatch, Samsungs version of it etc.
We are talking about things like THIS.

The Bundesnetzagentur has forbidden the use of some special watches designed specificially to keep an eye on your kids location (not bad stuff) and to listen to anything said in the kids surrounding by MAKING the watch dial your number unnotified so you can listen to anything going on without anybody, even the kids, noticing.

Which is a bad thing, privacy-like. The kids have a right to that, too!

Another stupid post, sigh.

In Germany it is against the law to tap or film people using concealed devices, means without them being aware that they are filmed. According to the law, any such devices are to be destroyed.

Because, you know, privacy is actually a thing in some countries.
