How can Bitdefender BOX protect your parents and grandparents?
IoT devices are cool, trendy and fancy, and more and more people buy them to make their life easier and more comfortable.
For a particular group of society – seniors – IoT devices can mean even more: they can help them meet their needs in a meaningful way.
Maybe you gave your parents or grandparents a smartphone or laptop so they can video call you and family members when they feel lonely.
Or maybe you bought them an IoT device to address an everyday problem, allowing them to open the house door remotely, start their washer or vacuum cleaner, turn their lights on, or adjust the thermostat from a distance. These may be their only option in special situations like recovering from a surgery, during an illness or for people with dexterity issues.
IoT devices can be life-saving for seniors. For example, smart bands and watches that monitor blood pressure or heart rates and automatically notify healthcare providers or an emergency responder. The faster arrival of help can make a vital difference. Healthcare smart devices represent one of the fastest-growing sectors of IoT, with the potential to help older adults care for themselves more easily.
If you have acquired an IoT device for your parents to make their everyday tasks easier, consider protecting them against hackers, too. Seniors have their challenges in understanding and using the device itself, so it is your responsibility to keep them safe.
Since some IoT gadgets might come with security issues, it’s a good idea to follow it up with a Bitdefender BOX. It is the right tool to:
– protect all your internet-connected devices
– detect vulnerabilities and anomalies in your IoT devices
– secure your network, data and privacy
As innovative as it might be, Bitdefender BOX will not solve all the problems. You will still be your parents’ favorite tech assistance provider. Because, even if technology changes the world we live in, some things will always stay the same.Bitdefender BOX cybersecurity grandparents parents
