|Security researcher Troy Hunt is among the folks who discovered that data from CloudPets toys made by Spiral Toys was available for anyone to see online. A MongoDB was stored in a public facing network and indexed by the connected things search engine Shodan. Email addresses and passwords stored as a bcrypt hash were in the database. And while pictures and recordings made by children who play with the toys was not in the database, references to them were which could be used to find them on S3, and many passwords were short and weak and easily cracked despite the hash. Several people reported contacting CloudPets as far back as December with no response, although CloudPets denied they were notified.||https://www.engadget.com/2017/02/27/connected-teddy-bears-leaked-kids-voices-online/|

|Having text messages, which are essentially data, not count towards our data is like we zero rate text messages making us more likely to choose those over other services that will count towards our cap, like WhatsApp. I don't think anyone really thinks about it like that but I thought it was an interesting way of looking at.|
