We live in an age where there are just as many people looking to do you harm online as there are in real life and it's important for students to stay vigilant. While it's essential to enjoy their new home, they need to ensure their personal details are secure and that they're the only one that can truly 'find themselves' online.
For something we use so often, we certainly have a love/hate relationship with our smartphones. These devices, while endlessly useful, can often be the bane of our day-to-day lives when they give us the dreaded '1% battery' notification.
As our homes become jam-packed with smarter devices in the years to come, they may help to makes our lives easier. At the same time, if they are not secured, they also can make the lives of cyber criminals easier by giving access to our whole network and all the devices on it. To be truly safe in our smart homes then we need to start applying the same security principles we already do with our mobile phones and computers.
