Smart TVs can be connected to the Internet and some models have applications that allow you to save your account information for easier access. Because of this, Smart TVs are no exception to cyber-attacks.
Below are some of the best practices to protect your Smart TV.
- Connect your Smart TV to a Wi-Fi with strong password.
- Always make sure your Smart TV is updated to the latest firmware.
- Install apps only from a trusted app store or website.
If your Smart TV got infected, reset it to factory default settings or ask help from the manufacturer to flash the Smart TV firmware.
