Internet security

Samsung takes a number of steps to protect its Internet-compatible Smart TVs against unauthorized incursions and hacking. For example, certain sensitive communications between the TV and the Internet servers are encrypted. In addition, the TV’s operating system has adopted controls to prevent the installation of unauthorized applications. Although we take steps to protect your Smart TV and personal information, no Internet-connected device or transmission
is completely secure. We therefore encourage you to take additional steps to safeguard your TV, secure your Internet connection, and minimize the risk of unauthorized access. These steps are listed below:

  • When Samsung releases software updates to improve
    the security of your TV, you should promptly install these updates. To automatically receive these updates, turn on Auto Update in the TV’s menu
    SAMSUNG QN43LS05BAFXZC The Sero 43 Inch LS05B QLED 4K TV fig 8 > Support > Software Update > Auto Update). When an update is available, a popup message appears on the TV screen. Accept the software download and update by selecting Yes when prompted. Take steps to secure your wireless access point and network. Your access point’s manual should provide additional details about how to implement the following measures:
    • Secure your wireless access point’s management settings with a unique password to prevent unauthorized changes to security related settings.
    • Implement standard encryption (e.g., WPA2 encryption) on your wireless access point to secure your wireless network signal.
    • Secure access to your wireless network with a hard-to-guess password.
    • Confirm your access point’s firewall setting is enabled (if so equipped).
    • Make sure that all your Internet-connected devices are behind your network’s firewall.
    • If your access point or modem has a standby mode button, use it to disconnect your home network from the Internet when it is not in use.
  • Use strong passwords for all your Internet accounts (Netflix, Facebook, etc.).
  • If any unexpected messages appear on your TV screen requesting permission to link a device or enable a remote session, do NOT accept.
  • Do not visit suspicious web sites and do not install any suspicious programs. We recommend that users install only those authorized apps provided by Samsung through Samsung Smart Hub.
