Nest was purchased by Google many years ago. This change isn’t a “force into tracking program”.I can't believe I'm actually considering spending several hundred dollars on a different thermostat because I'm being forced into Google's tracking program. Jesus.
The Honeywell Home T9 looks alright. It's not as sexy as the Nest, but it supports Homekit!
A lot of people use the same password across multiple sites. When one site gets hacked, the hackers are able to use that password to get into the other accounts as well.
Hackers were logging into people’s Nest accounts and people were blaming google instead of realizing they themselves made a mistake by using the same password on multiple sites.
Using 2FA means that even if someone has your password, they still need a one-time-pin to get onto your account.
Why?They just lost a buttload of customers by doing this.
