 Following Tips Could Protect You from Hackers in 2022

Hello dear friends, technology is being smart and smarter day by day and in another hand, it is becoming essential for human beings.

It is estimated by the researchers that about 35+% of households in the United States had at least one smart speaker and that this would increase by more than 75% in the next 3-4 years.. Popular smart devices include home alarms and sensors, outlet controls, smart sprinkler control systems, smart speakers and assistants, and even smart fridges.

While these devices can be useful, they can also bring some risks. These devices, unlike, say, your laptop or desktop computer, usually have little built-in security. This makes them particularly vulnerable to attacks or malware.

Because they connect to the internet, smart devices are vulnerable to attacks from hackers and cybercriminals. The data that these devices collect and transmit can tell criminals about you.

So what can you do to make sure that you maintain your privacy with your smart devices? Here are some tips.

Trick 1:- Change your router name regularly.
Changing the name of your wifi router makes it more difficult for the possible attackers to identify your router's model number and make of your router, so that becomes harder to hack. Make sure you shall choose an unusual name with an unrelated combination of passwords...

Trick 2:- Change the default password
Every smart device company gives you a default password or settings to the device. that makes the device vulnerable as the hacker or attacker already knows the configuration of the said device. that is why you should change the default settings and also password to your unusual combination of passwords.

Trick 3:- Create a strong, unique password.
Strong, unique passwords are still one of the best ways you can protect yourself from being hacked. You should, of course, make sure to avoid obvious passwords like your birthdate, “password”, and sequential numbers like “11111”. But more than that, make sure your password is long and is made up of a variety of numbers, letters, capitals, and symbols. And make it unique from your other devices.

Trick 4: Create a guest network for visitors.
You may want to give your guests internet access while they are visiting, but sharing your wi-fi password creates a vulnerability in your security. You can solve this by creating a separate network for guests that isn’t used for your smart devices and has a different password.

Make Your Device Settings Appropriate for Your Needs
Your smart device likely comes with a number of features you may not need. Smart TVs are now starting to come with built-in cameras (What is more big brother than that?). Even on your smart assistant, there may be settings you’re not going to use. Here are some tips for setting up your device to maximize privacy and security.

Trick 5: Review your device’s settings.
Your device will likely come with a number of default privacy and security settings. Take a moment when you’re setting it up to review those settings and make any changes that are appropriate. Some of the settings may be useful to the manufacturer, but not necessarily useful to you.

Trick 6: Disable features you do not need.
You may want a smart assistant to play music while you’re doing something else; you may not necessarily need to access it while you’re out of the home. Think about features like remote access, the microphone, and the camera. Disable these if you don’t need them. If there isn’t a setting for disabling the camera, and you’d like to, a piece of black tape can be a low-tech solution.

Trick 7: Update your software consistently.
Companies often update their software when they notice a security flaw. Updating software helps keep it up-to-date and improve security. Make sure you do your updates as soon as possible. Consider setting your device to update automatically.

Trick 8: Review the devices you have in your network.
Sometimes newer devices offer more privacy and security features than older ones (but, sometimes they don’t!). Have a look at what’s on your network and consider whether a newer model would offer more security.

Trick 9: Use two-factor authentification.
Two-factor authentification is when you need another step in addition to the device password to access it. This could be a code that is sent to your phone or a link in an email. Two-factor authentification is more secure than a simple password, so if your device has this option, consider using it.

Act With Security in Mind
Our own behavior is sometimes the most important factor in maintaining our security. Here are some things to keep in mind to maintain the security of your devices.

Tip 10: Install security software.
Several companies offer security software for your computer and smart devices. These can help protect you from emerging malware threats. Consider purchasing this kind of software, and make sure it’s from a reputable company.

Trick 11: Avoid public wi-fi networks.
While it may be convenient to manage your smart device from a public cafe, try to avoid it. Using unsecured public networks leaves you more open to attacks or someone snooping on your data. If you have to use a public network, consider using a virtual private network (VPN) to keep it more secure.

Trick 12: Read the privacy policy for apps.
I know, you never read the privacy policy. But it really is important, especially for apps that come from less well-known companies. Make sure you understand what information you are giving them access to and what they are planning to do with that information.

Last Thoughts
These tips should help make your smart devices a little less vulnerable to attacks from bad actors. Unfortunately, no IT network is completely immune from such attacks. These tips will simply help you reduce the risk of such attacks. Ultimately, you may wish to consider what the benefits of these devices are and whether they’re worth the risks to privacy and security.
