Smart Home: Essential Tips to Keep Hackers Out

Keeping your smart home safe and secure is more important than ever. With the rise in connected devices, hackers are finding new ways to invade your privacy. Follow these expert tips to protect your smart home from hackers and keep your personal information safe:

  1. Secure your Wi-Fi network - set a strong, unique password for your Wi-Fi network to prevent unauthorized access.

  2. Choose reputable brands - when shopping for devices, read customer reviews, and choose brands that offer regular software and security updates.

  3. Disable unnecessary features - Review the settings of your smart devices and disable any unnecessary features that could potentially compromise your security.

  4. Use strong, unique passwords - avoid using common passwords, and never re-use passwords across multiple devices or accounts.

  5. Avoid unprotected networks - Never access your devices on an open or unprotected network, such as a coffee shop. Instead, opt for the security of your own personal hotspot.
