Is a Hacker Using Your Security Camera to Spy On You?

Updated: May 9, 2023



Those doorbell cameras are all the rage.


Gosh, you can even feel FOMO if you don’t have one.


Neighbors eagerly post camera images warning others that a salesperson is making their way around the neighborhood.


What fun!


Prices for home security systems have dropped.


It’s never been so cheap and easy to see who’s knocking at your door.


But did you stop to think who is watching you?


Horror stories abound about these DIY security cams.


Stories about creeps talking to children.


Smarter creeps spy on you silently and steal data.


The problem is that these systems aren’t as DIY as we’re led to believe.


Most consumers don’t know a darn thing about securing them.


They leave usernames and passwords at defaults.


Or if they do manage to change the password, it’s something easy.


Easy-to-remember often means easy-to-hack.


Don’t make dumb mistakes.


Here are some tips to keep the hackers out of your security system:


· Secure Your Router

· Change the Default Username & Password

· Ensure the System Uses SSL/TLS

· Keep the Software Updated

· Consider Access Levels for Multiple Users
