Secure your smart home

As the adoption of smart home technology continues to rise, it’s a must to safeguard your home and personal information. To achieve this, consider following these five guidelines:

  1. Ensure strong, unique passwords are used for all smart devices and regularly update them.
  2. Keep your devices’ firmware and software up to date to address any potential security vulnerabilities.
  3. Create a separate network solely for your smart devices — isolating them from your primary network — and add a firewall for an additional layer of protection.
  4. Set up voice assistants with voice recognition and limit access to sensitive information.
  5. Thoroughly review the privacy settings of your smart home devices to control the data they collect and share. Make adjustments accordingly based on your security preferences.
