Screen-exclamationWith hackers all over the world accessing information from internet-based devices, Sen. Charles Schumer asked every manufacturer of internet-based devices like smart TVs and camera-enabled devices to improve their security designs to safeguard their consumers. He asked the manufacturers to design devices that push clients to use passwords in every device they use before they can access and share images.

The senator’s request was prompted by the thousands of security-breached cases all over the world involving camera and internet-based devices. He described examples of how vulnerable the audio-video devices are to online hackers and how important it is to have a safe password.
