Google has revoked a Chinese tech giant's access rights after a user was able to view the feed from a stranger's security cameras on his device. A user in the Netherlands alleged that his Google Home Hub began displaying photos from unidentified locations on its smart screen when he accessed his camera, made by Xiaomi. Among the stills to appear was a sleeping baby. Xiaomi said it had identified the cause and was working on a permanent fix. Reddit user Dio-V said when he attempted to view images from his own security camera on his Google Home Hub, which lets owners control all their smart devices on one display, it showed photos from unidentified camera feeds. The images included a man sleeping on a porch, what appeared to be a shop security camera, a stranger's kitchen, and a child resting in a cot.
