Nest Tightens Security With Two-Factor Authentication Mandatory For Its Smart Home Devices
One of the biggest fears for IoT devices is security. In order to get around this, Google’s Nest has now made it mandatory for devices to set-up two-factor authentication. This gives it an additional layer of security including the existing one. All registered users who have their device connected will be sent email with codes to enable the two-factor authentication.
Nest’s update goes the extra mile in making sure all of its users have two-factor authentication set up since those that don’t won’t be able to get into their accounts. The update should force people to implement it into their smart home devices finally.
Amazon’s Ring has also made it simpler for a user to enable the two-factor authentication though this is something that isn’t mandatory. In the past, there have been instances where a hacker was able to hack into multiple security systems and broadcasted fake information. It has also been noted that it is a good practice to have the passwords changed regularly so that the devices are secure.
