Keep The IoT-Device Hackers Away With Your Own Handy Hacks!
Of course, IoT makes our life easier and more comfortable, allowing us to monitor and manage our homes remotely. Since IoT devices usually have almost no built-in security, this makes them ideal targets for hackers. Let’s take a look at these five ways to keep your IoT devices secure. The first one in the list is to change your router’s default settings. Make sure you never give sensitive information on a public network. The second is to use strong passwords. While it may seem like a no brainer, most users tend to stick to default passwords, making their accounts vulnerable.
Updating your devices regularly will ensure that the software stays updated, and your security is top-notch. Using two-factor authentication and disabling UPnP features are other measures to protect yourself. Since most IoT devices have Universal Plugin and Play features, it is advisable to keep the feature disabled.
For example, if someone successfully hacks into your email account, two-way authentication will notify you immediately and require that you grant further access.
