How safe is it to use a Samsung smart TV?

Hey. I got a Samsung Smart TV (because it seems there are no more plain monitor TVs). But I never connected it to the wi-fi as I am concerned by some reports about Samsung tvs recording audio, sending info back to Samsung, etc.
Since it’s here anyway, is there a safe way to connect it ? Or should I just keep using as a second monitor? Is there some literature about it?


Thank you for participating in the Samsung Developer Forum. However, this is not the correct forum for end product bug reports, questions or concerns.

I would recommend you post using the Samsung Members App or at Samsung support select Contact US and then the Social tab Join the Conversation

Because end user questions disrupt developer discussion this thread will be removed soon.
