Smart-home devices hold a treasure trove of personal information, from your birth date to credit card details, that cybercriminals can steal via hacking if the devices lack robust protections to thwart attacks. They can then use the stolen data to launch targeted attacks to rope you into shady deals. For example, if a hacker were to uncover that one of your family members has debts, he could send you a phony request for money on behalf of that relative. To avoid becoming a cyber victim, don’t share financial information, such as bank details, with smart devices, and avoid connecting email clients, calendars, and other apps that contain sensitive information with your devices.
