Feedback from Europeans for Safe Connections

We "Europeans for Safe Connections" welcome this activity. EU consumer law should address these issues:

Issue 1: Consumers should be educated how to use modern wireless products safely (e.g. turn off the wireless functions at night). It is necessary that people are fully informed and given an option (e.g. all wireless products should be able to connect via cable after which the wireless function is automatically switched off). Detailed explanation in our previous feedback:

Issue 2: Parents are not aware of the huge amount of RF sources - smart diapers, wireless baby monitors and cameras, bluetooth smart toothbrushes, smart watches, smart lamps, mobile phones and tablets, close to microwave ovens, close to induction ovens and much more. Parents should be informed and make informed decisions about buying and using wireless products. Detailed explanation in our previous feedback:

Issue 3: Regarding cybersecurity of wearable products, all sellers of connected devices should have an obligation to inform the customer about the safe ways of using internet connection, how to disable this connection and all the internet options. Detailed explanation in our previous feedback:

Issue 4: We require that when AI is implemented in services and products, the protection of life, health and privacy of consumers or those harmed by the negative impacts of AI will take precedence over manufacturers and the supply chain, when it comes to AI failures and potential legal liability. Detailed explanation in our previous feedback:
