A TikTok influencer used a voice cloning app to expose a cheating boyfriend. But wait, there’s more to this story than meets the eye! We discuss the serious implications of voice cloning and how its being used for new types of phone scams.
Lastly, we discuss the recent announcement by the Biden-Harris administration about their new cybersecurity labeling program for smart devices. Will this program help or hinder the security of smart devices?
