Privacy protection as one of the sales benefits Protecting privacy is becoming increasingly important to consumers. Therefore, to use the Google Nest Hub, a guest will not need to log in to the device and no activities will be associated with a personal account. There is no camera on the Nest Hub, (there is always a danger of finding a way to hack the camera), while the physical microphone switch can be turned off for added privacy. Sound is never stored and all activities will be immediately deleted from the device when it is reset for the next guest.
