Be careful about what your friends and relatives bring to the next birthday party, that toy could potentially be leaking personal information and private details about your children and your family to unsavory sources.

The FBI recently issued a warning to parents about smart toys that could potentially be putting your child's privacy at risk.

This could put your child's safety at risk, particularly if they are able to collect the child's name, school and location.
