A new app, which we have decided to keep unnamed for the purposes of this article, features hundreds of home security cameras across North America, causing great concern among users online.
In Toronto, dozens of driveways, backyards, front entranceways are featured, and south of the border, cameras inside the home are displayed for public streaming.
When it comes to security tips, experts are saying to regularly change the password on the camera itself, and ensure it is a strong key combination that is different from the default password.
Similar practices are recommended for routers itself. Change your Wi-Fi network password, hide your network (SSID), and remember to set your router administrator credentials away from the default username/password.
