Newsflash for those still living in the 90s — Any device that connects to the internet can potentially be hacked.
So what can you do to prevent this from happening? A lot of things, but first, you might need to check how vulnerable your devices are, that is where this free web tool comes in. Bullguard, an industry-leading developer of security software, created an IoT Scanner that will scan any internet-connected device or network to see if any vulnerabilities can be exploited.
To scan just visit the website by clicking on the link. It would immediately scan your system and network. In my case, I got good news on both normal and deep scans.
… But if it does find a security vulnerability, it’ll give you details of the problem that you can use to bolster your safety.
So, are you safe?
