For those concerned with privacy and digital security, the home and office internet router has become a primary point of failure. A recent scientific study on home routers reveals why and here we summarize the report's alarming findings. Also, a "privatizing" solution for securing your home router and internet for greater privacy, cybersecurity, and personal safety.
First, the router is just a computer. It's a computer designed for a specific function but it's a computer nevertheless.
Second, routers are a natural target of attacks because they're connected directly to the internet and are on all the time, 24/7.
The bottom-line results of the study include the following statistics:
Home internet routers are made around the world by third-party manufacturers with little or no quality control measures or regulatory standards.
For increasing privacy and cybersecurity on home and office internet networks we recommend "privatizing." The privatization approach takes the router function out of the hands of sketchy third parties and puts ownership and control into your own.
