1. Secure your Internet network
If you are using an IP camera which has already linked to the Internet. This Internet refers to your home WIFI. One thing you can do is to protect you WIFI password. You are supposed to set a strong password which shouldn’t be just pure numbers or letters. You should mix them together and it is better that you add some symbols in your password.
Another thing you should do is to change your password frequently. Maybe some of your friends come to your house, you will tell them your home WIFI password. Be careful they can do everything with your WIFI Password. So you know how important to change your WIFI password timely.

2. Password also protect your cameras
You may often use the App on the phone to monitor your home. And maybe your family members also have the password of the App. Make sure everyone won’t leak the password to other people. But it’s better to change the password.

3. Avoid port forwarding to your IP camera
The router you use comes with built in security that blocks certain applications from accessing your home network. Some people choose to set up port forwarding for devices such as an XBox which might be ok, but when it comes to IP cameras I don’t recommend you do this.

4. Change the password of your router
It is no need for me to retalk the importance of the password.
