Simple Ways To Make Your Home Safer By Limiting The Vulnerability Of Smart Devices
Smart homes are not really safe. Digital Guardian is a data-loss prevention company. It recently stated the number of ways IoT can leave the people and their houses vulnerable.
Bluetooth-enabled door locks can be hacked open, thermostats can be manipulated, robot vacuums can be turned into mobile spies that send out images and maps of your home, and smart TVs can change the channel to content you’d rather not see.
These are some of the things you can do to keep yourself safe. Rename and reroute your router and change the default password. If you have guests visiting, create a guest network for them. Don’t give anyone access to your primary network. While the two-factor authentication is not foolproof, it does offer some protection. Turn it on.
Most IoT devices have a default username and password. It is the most common way people gain entry. Make sure you change it and don’t share it with anybody. Review the default settings and change it so that all your information is safe and secure. The most important piece of advice is that you make sure all your devices are up to date.
