We have posted these before but here is a reminder of a few things you can do to minimize your chances of having your smart home hacked:

  • Always keep your devices installed with the latest updates
  • If multifactor authentication is available, use it
  • Always change default usernames and passwords
  • Put your IoT device on a separate network from your computer
  • Do not use insecure or public WiFi networks with these devices
