This is how Samsung makes sure its smart TVs are safe from cyber threats


The privacy of smart TVs has recently been highlighted, with reports in the United States that some TV manufacturers have a backdoor ‘security flaw’ that places user’s data at risk. To prevent such attacks, Samsung employs technologies and layers of security to ensure the best possible protection for sensitive user data.

To protect sensitive data—such as usernames, passwords, and email addresses—Samsung guarantees that its smart TVs have no security-bypassing backdoors left open to any form of cyber-attack, thanks to its 3-Stage Model Security Care Service Solution.

Here are the three separate stages of security that keep user data information protected and secure in 2020 Samsung Smart TVs:

  • Service Security Stage: This is the first layer of security for 2020 Samsung Smart TVs. In this stage, intruders cannot attack a user’s network as it blocks phishing sites on the Internet from accessing devices where the data are stored. An added security bonus is that this layer of security detects any form of intrusion from malicious codes.
  • Platform Security Stage: In this layer of security, important data—such as your user account and password information—is encrypted prior to its storage. Through a standardized encryption process, the data stored remains protected when communicating with external servers to prevent hackers from stealing user information. The Platform Security Stage likewise detects and blocks any malicious apps and unauthorized files trying to access devices.
  • Hardware Security Stage: In this final security stage, information leaks are prevented by physically segregating operational spaces at the hardware level. A Smart TV’s operating system (OS) and services remain protected so the device can boot safely.

Some security features may vary depending on a TV’s model and the year it was released.
