The Internet of Things (IoT) includes devices like smart watches, smart TVs, smart speakers, and smart appliances. Whether you are using these devices for teaching and learning, application development, or personal use, there are safeguards you can take to prevent security threats.

Here are a few steps to increase your IoT device security:

  • Choose a strong password and enable two-factor authentication when possible.
  • When using on your home network, use a strong password for your router and check it’s using a secure Wi-Fi standard.
  • Keep the device software updated with the latest security patches and firmware.
