Advice for IoT, Smart-Home, Smart-TVs, etc.

As I already mentioned, years ago, in my tutorial <===> WHY Is It A MUST To Have Basics Knowledge Of Cyber-Security In A Connected Technology World!? <===> let us dig a bit deeper into IoT, Internet of Things and its implications of the users awareness AND responsibility.

Actually (January 2020 and even before…) there are a lot of warnings from Cyber-Security experts and EVEN from the FBI concerning Smart-homes and its connected devices:

SO NOW, after having bought a Smart-TV and other so-called smart devices which are connecting to the internet, WHAT to do? First of all: do YOU really need it, as nearly any devices are getting sold with IoT capabilities? IF NOT, WHAT to do?

  • Before connecting the power:
    • Check your Router settings and block any unknown devices!
    • IF you are able to access your IT device, change straight the manufacturer password; give it a STRONG password!

Concerning passwords: I recommend to use a Password-Manager such as:

With a Password-Manager you just need to remember a Master-Password and ALL other Passwords will get generated with a STRONG Password from the software itself!!
