As expected, we are seeing more connected devices – everything from coffee makers to sound systems, but their convenience sometimes makes us overlook potential risks. McAfee, the cybersecurity company, urges people to be aware of the security risks associated with having connected devices in the home, while offering some simple steps to protect your devices. Start with strong passwords, or using an online password management tool, and be stringent when it comes to sharing logins. While it can be tempting to share passwords to streaming services and social media, your personal login should remain personal. Always use two-factor authentication and make sure to update device firmware for any security patches. These tips will help reduce the risk of being compromised.
