We’re entering a new era where all kinds of devices are getting internet-connected and communicating with each other: refrigerators, watches, Bluetooth speakers, cars, door locks, and even clothing! It’s called the Internet of Things and it’s pretty exciting.

But it also comes with many risks — not just security risks, but threats to your personal privacy. You may not realize it, but any device that connects to the internet can potentially be hacked.

Which is why you need to use this free tool now.

Bullguard, an industry-leading developer of security software, has an online tool called IoT Scanner. It scans any internet-connected device or network to see if there are any vulnerabilities that can be exploited to gain access to said device or network.

If it does find a security vulnerability, it’ll give you details of the problem that you can use as a first step toward bolstering your network security. Give it a try. It can’t hurt. Run the Deep Scan if you can.

Note that even if the IoT Scanner gives you the green light, you should know that there are some internet-capable devices that you should never connect to the Internet of Things.
