It’s happened again: The dreaded warning that you’ve reached your month’s data limit on your mobile phone.

For the rest of the billing period, every GB of data is going to cost an extra $10, $15, or more, depending on your mobile plan.

Those GBs can add up if you are watching videos, streaming music, or even just browsing Facebook using your cellular data.

Of course, your mobile provider is rubbing their hands with greedy glee as you resign yourself to overage charges.

Your Home Is Connected. But Is It Secure?

Internet gadget security

 

Your home has just experienced a data breach. It wasn’t from a neighbor stealing wireless internet. It wasn’t from a hacker accessing your Netflix account. It was from your smart razor. Sound far-fetched?

It’s not.

According to May 2018 report by Forbes, cyber thieves were able to gain entry into more than 100 million home automation systems because they discovered a system vulnerability in a smart razor called the Z-Wave.

The Internet of Things (IoT) may let you network multiple devices together, including your smartphone, television, and home automation systems, but it also increases the risk that hackers could breach a single device and access your entire network. This booming market, which Statista projects will reach $470 billion market revenue by 2020, is forecasted to ship more than 90 million units into homes by the end of 2018. In other words, the threat of cyber theft in IoT devices is growing.

Here’s what you need to know about securing your IoT devices.
