The first step to creating a cybersecure home is to start by securing your WiFi Access Point. Change your WiFi Access Points default adminstrator password to something only you know. Many WiFi Access Points or WiFi routers are shipped with default administrator passwords that are publicly known and posted on the Internet.
Now adays most of us have numerous devices in our homes connect to the Internet. From thermostats and gaming consoles to baby monitors, door locks or even your car. Ensure you change the default passwords on these devices and enable automatic updating.
Never share your passwords with others, including your supervisor or coworkers. Your password is a secret; it only works if only you know it. If anyone else knows your password, you may be responsible for their actions.
Be aware of all the devices connected to your home network, including baby monitors, gaming consoles, TVs, appliances or even your car. Ensure all those devices are protected by a strong password and/or are running the latest version of their operating system.
