While some may think, “why would I need my toaster to connect to the internet,” smart home devices continue to become more and more popular. In fact, a recent study by Intel found that by 2025, 71% of Americans will have at least one smart device in their home. For many that aren’t ready to replace their favorite “dumb” appliances, smart plugs are an easy and affordable way to connect anything. But, do they leave your virtual “front door” wide open for cybercriminals? 

In the latest episode of “Hackable?” our host Geoff Siskind and the team investigate just how risky smart plugs are for homeowners. Can just one weak link compromise your entire home network? To find out, Geoff invites a white-hat to hack the smart plug in his studio. Learn if your smart home and devices are at risk.

Android users and podcast lovers are in luck! Google just rolled out an easier than ever podcast platform so you can binge all you favorite shows, like our original podcast, Hackable?

Haven’t heard it yet? Our award-winning show gives a behind-the-scenes look into real cyber attacks in action. We take hacks as seen on TV, in movies, and throughout pop culture and see how they measure up in the real world. Season One featured Geoff and his band of good-guy hackers who put these cyber attacks to the test. In Season Two, they came back to deliver even more eye-opening excitement. The crew found out just how easy it is to digitally break into cars, passwords, an automated car wash, a smart baby onesie, and so much more! The team is here to answer the question, “Is it Hackable?”

If you’re an Android user, you can now listen to podcasts directly in Google Podcasts. Binge listen to all Hackable? episodes, or catch up where you left off now!
