PrivacyShield – Sound Blocking for Your Smart Speaker | NewsWatch Review

Consumer Update

In the past, we protected our home’s privacy with blinds and door locks. But with the rise of smart home devices, especially smart speakers that can listen to our conversations 24/7, we need to find new and innovative ways to protect our information. That’s where PrivacyShield comes in.

Privacy should always be an option as in you should always choose the option of privacy as opposed to all of your information being collected by default.

So, Kyle Costello and co-founder, Bruce, partnered with an acoustical engineering firm out of Richmond, VA called Acoustical Solutions and did a ton of research and development.

The results of the research and development with Acoustical Solutions is PrivacyShield. This is a device that works with your smart speaker and lets you choose whether you want the device to listen to your conversations or not.

There was a lot of testing around the right size and the right fit with the goal to not have it feel obtrusive to the user.

The technology in PrivacyShield really comes down to custom-designed audio frequencies that the device generates and are designed to work with these smart speakers. Be it your Amazon Echo or Google Home, PrivacyShield works with it to block out whoever you don’t want listening.

In addition, PrivacyShield provides:

  • Hack-proof capabilities
  • Visual privacy confirmation
  • Long-lasting battery
  • Custom-engineered sound blocking

If you’d like to protect your privacy in the new digital world, head to today.
