Recent years have seen an increase in the use of a wide variety of connected devices in the field of the Internet of Things. This paper analyzes the security and privacy issues of connected devices used by minors between 12 and 17 years old. Its development is part of the European project RAYUELA, whose main objective is to promote the safe use of the Internet by young people. As a result, the existing vulnerabilities associated with the use of the connected devices most used by minors are presented. In addition, it shows that device manufacturers tend to give priority to the functionalities and services they have to offer, leaving security aspects in the background. The study reveals that companies sometimes exploit data linked to the use of these devices for various purposes, ignoring users’ right to privacy.
