Protect yourself and your family:

1.) Make sure your wireless router and camera have passwords that aren't identical. Choose passwords that include letters, numbers and symbols. Never use the default password that comes with your router or camera and don't use "password" as your password!

2.) Check the manufacturer's website for software updates for your camera.

**You should also check anything you have at home that has a camera attached (tablets, Apple TV, etc.) and make sure it is also password protected.**
