Securing Your Smart Devices Is Keying To Protecting Your Smart Home Privacy
Though smart home devices make our lives way easier, they come with certain threats to security. Experts are of the opinion most of these devices are secure. They say that hackers can attack you only when the Wi-Fi router operating your smart home devices is not very secure, more so if you use security cameras.
World Privacy Forum’s executive director, Pam Dixon, says that the hackers can literally look through the security cameras that you have installed. Bitdefender BOX is a Smart Home Cybersecurity Hub which is designed to keep Internet-connected devices secure from stolen passwords, identity theft, malware, and spying.
Change Alexa’s name so others can’t use it. Delete sensitive recordings — like health searches or requests for financial information. Read the privacy policies for all smart devices. Call the manufacturer’s customer service department with questions and concerns about privacy.
Also, ensure that your smart devices have end-to-end encryption so that no third parties can sneak in and steal your personal data. Reading a user manual before starting to use the product is also a great idea. There is so much you can learn about making your devices secure from the manual.
