Smart devices can be found almost everywhere. As this technology continues to skyrocket in popularity, privacy issues associated with these devices are growing too. Using content analysis, this study examines 125 smart device websites for privacy concerns, privacy protection measures, and privacy regulations and policies. The research also studies the availability, readability, and accessibility of the privacy information provided by smart device companies on their websites. Findings reveal privacy information can differ depending on the smart device features. While privacy information appears to be accessible for consumer audiences, it is not always comprehensive or easy to understand.
