This sounds like a joke or a PK Dick novel, but my new "smart" refrigerator is spying on me. It has a built in wifi system and I cannot seem to disable it. The powers that be want to spy on people through their devices like TV's, mobile devices, home appliances, etc. My new fridge is an LG Studio Refrigerator lsfd2491st. If anyone knows about electronics and can help me out with diagrams or any other info on how to disable the WiFi I would appreciate it. There is no info that I can find through basic search engines. I do not know how to search the "dark web" for this info, so if anyone does know how and can send me a link to info or a diagram that would help I would appreciate it.

Thanks.

Despite being wifi enabled, it won't be able to connect to a network unless you set it up. The simple solution is to not provide it with the credentials to your wifi network.

It is already active. I did nothing and it is already communicating with our "smart" electric meter which is soon to be swapped out for an analogue one. It is also broadcasting a WiFi signal my mobile phone can pick up. I'd like to shut it off.

A fridge that is connected to your wifi? What has this world come too...

It amazes me how many things now a days are being connected to the Internet like this to collect information about us. It disgusts me. We really have no privacy anymore.
Everything published by Gone-and-Back are the mad rantings and ravings of a mind who yearns to be free and thinks he knows what he is talking about. However, these are just delusions made to feel that freedom, because that freedom will never come. Any experiments done are purely figments of the imagination, and are falsified to the highest degree. Nothing should be taken seriously from a crazy mans mind.

If you can locate the wifi component, but just cant safely disable, you could jacket it with a faraday cage. A grounded piece of foil or wire mesh around it would block any signal.
My whole router is in a grounded wire mesh envelope despite my wireless being disabled in settings. I have one friend whos successfully hacked routers that had the wireless 'disabled'.
Cant hack through a faraday cage tho.

Good luck. The FBI has no business knowing how many ice cubes you consume, lol.

Best I could find: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZBo38uNono

That shows how to physically identify and disable the wifi for a Samsung.. probably pretty similar.

The reason why is because people buy them, if they didn't buy their gimmicks then there wouldn't be wifi refrigerators, wifi toasters, stoves etc. Long as people keep buying them that don't care about their privacy then they will make them.

I thought I read an article not long ago about some students in a university making something that can ping your wifi or router or something and will essentially give them an idea of where you are at in your house, hiding behind something or not. They said it would be great for hostage situations but we all know better.

The fridge was a gift. If any of us had known it was a "smart" WiFi device we would not have bought it. We would have asked for something similar that was not a WiFi device.

Can you change the wifi password on your router and just not tell the fridge?

Sorry if I struck a nerve, wasn't referring to you. I know most on here wouldn't buy such things. I was trying to answer gone and back about what the world is coming to with this technology, because you know a refrigerator with a tv on it is just so important,Laughing A washer that tells your phone when the laundry is done is a must. All selling gimmicks trying to convince us how we ever lived without them before all while relaying information about us in the background.

Enjoy the refrigerator, especially if you didn't have to buy it. That's even betterThumbs up

Peace

Lobotomize it! Simply disconnect DC power to the necessary circuit. In this case, either to the wifi module itself (easy to identify by the chip number and design) or to the entire logic board. Done!

wifi fridge lol, this has to be one of the most useless techs ive seen in a while. If wifi is not connected to a network it is not communicating with anything. If you cant disable it in the settings, it shouldnt connect to your network if you didnt set it up and enter the password, unless you dont have one. If you dont just create one or if you already entered it change the password, or you can prob physically disconnect it somehow. Regarding the "smart" meter dont think its from the wifi, but rather an rfid chip that sends to it info like the product model, what time and for how long its working. You should def get rid of that thing back to an analog, wouldnt want electric company having so much control over my electricity.

This is just great. Now hackers can spoil your food. Next we should put wifi in our ovens so they can burn our houses down.

Most things do not need to have an IP.

Here is an article about hackers remotely hijacking a car.

Ummm, why does your fridge need a wireless connection? Are the little elves in there watching porn or something?

The OP wasn't joking. This crap disgusts me and I have planning in off the grid escape plan to escape this nonsense for a long time. PK Dick + Huxley + Orwell + Marx = Hell

Below is an article how where Petraeus openly brags about it.

I can only imaging the OP sidling up to their fridge and saying "Pssst, looking for the password? WELL, JOKE'S ON YOU!"

You're not the only one planning an escape. Wifi fridges? Virtual reality? Turning a light off with a phone? What has the world come to?


Why is the wifi fridge needed in the first place? Has there been a concrete answer? It's a device to cool and freeze food, nothing more. I don't think I'll ever understand the novelty of having useless things.

The customer is king. Maybe there's a demand for an app that tells you that your freeze precipitation is done? What's also cool about wifi in general, is that it can monitor the room for you. So in case the FBI wants to steal your ice cubes or naphtha, the fridge can notice this and set off an alarm.
