Google Listens To Users And Ramps Up Security For Nest Devices
Google’s range of Nest smart home devices don’t really enjoy a good reputation among the homeowners. The customers have been requesting for improved security on these devices since they are with them all the time. Thankfully, Google has decided to do something about it.
It recently added Nest devices to its Advanced Protection Program—an offering that adds better account protections for users at a higher risk of being targeted, like politicians and journalists.
It allows users to enable stricter security features if they believe they are at high-risk. Users can restrict third-party access to account data and even add additional anti-malware protections.
Due to the lack of standardization in the industry, security is often lax. If the different connected devices in a household cannot work together seamlessly, they usually end up vulnerable. This lets hackers spy and even gain entry and control of smart devices. A common but effective solution to these issues is to have two-factor authentication in place. This will allow users to stay secure. The implementation of Advanced Protection Program to Nest devices brings a much-needed security layer.
