Taking The Rights Steps The Secure Your Smart Home Cameras
There are two kinds of Wi-Fi-enabled security cameras – smart cameras like Alphabet’s Nest Cam and traditional IP cameras. Most privacy issues with cameras that you hear about are the IP cameras. They are actually quite good. But many do not set them up properly and securely.
They use the default credentials and connect to the internet which gives a lot of people the camera’s IP address online by just watching the feed.
There even are search engines like SHODAN designed to help people find these exposed camera feeds and other vulnerable Internet of Things devices.
Modern security cameras are designed to be used as smart home gadgets. You will be required to use an online account instead of credentials on a web interface. One can also use two-factor authentication for more security. They are updated with the firmware as well. Since whatever smart camera you choose will upload its feeds to a server, you should make sure that you trust the company.
Buy a camera from a reputed and trustworthy brand. Create a strong password and enable the two-factor authentication.
