When consumer WiFi was first introduced, it was all about keeping our neighbors from stealing our internet connection over our WiFi networks. Now, with the explosion of mobile devices, Internet of Things devices, and other “smart” devices connecting to our home WiFi there is a big chance of intruders being able to steal very sensitive information from us.
The IoT, as it is called, is a growing part of our lives and is something we all need to be aware of. Just last year (2017) there were reportedly 20 billion connected devices all around us. Every year, the number of IoT devices is rapidly growing. Although IoT devices make our lives easier, these devices are not safe from cyberattacks.
