Tips And Tricks To Enhance Your Smart Home’s Security
The more the numbers of connected devices that you have on your home ecosystem, the higher the chances of a potential security hack.
The Internet of Things (IoT) includes any device or appliance that connects to the internet through your home network. Cybercriminals can access your home wireless network through your internet router—and once they’re in, it’s a cybercrime goldmine.
With smart devices getting more intelligent with every update, these devices will soon start learning and mapping your schedules, letting cybercriminals know when you are and aren’t at home. If you are giving your card details over the phone, the hackers will now be able to access all your financial data.
They could also use baby monitors, smart speakers, and other smart gadgets to listen in to your private conversations. Some ways to deal with this would be to avoid public Wi-Fi networks, set up two-factor verifications, use an irrelevant router name, and change your password regularly and ensure each one is strong. In addition to these steps, you should also update the software, turn your firewall on, limit WPS, change the location of your router to the center of your home, and restrict any remote access. Working on these steps will ensure that your home is safe and hackers will not find it easy to break into.
