And make sure you give the TV a lobotomy as well. Samsung's will try to connect to any open WiFi network, even without you telling it to do so. Only way to stop it is to crack the TV open and pull the WiFi card.This is concerning because hackers will now try to phish and otherwise get into the Samsung servers to not only install ransomeware but to also threaten to disable every connected Samsung TV. This is a real possibility. Once disabled, the original TV owner must send Samsung proof of purchase and some personal ID's to have it reactivated. Should millions be shut down all at once, this will be a logistical nightmare for both Samsung and its customers. I just learned that there is no good reason to keep a smart TV online anymore. I'll use a Roku box and stream using that.
Damnit. The world is going nuts.
