A typical home now has 10.37 devices connected to the internet.
PCs and mobile devices make up a little over half of those and the rest are IoT devices.
During the first six months of 2021, the number of IoT cyberattacks was up by 135%.
Hackers use IoT devices to get to computers & smartphones
You can reduce your risk of a work computer being breached by putting IoT devices on a different Wi-Fi.
To do this, you would set up a “guest” Wi-Fi on your home router.
Put all IoT devices on that guest network, and keep computers and smartphones on the existing Wi-Fi network.
