Re: How do i protect my smart tv?

There is no Norton program that can directly protect your TV.  Make sure you keep the software up to date and keep the firewall in your router enabled.  You could consider changing the DNS settings in your router to Norton ConnectSafe, but all that will do is help prevent your devices accessing known phishing and malicious sites.

There may be other options too, but that's all I've got at this time.  Perhaps others will have more ideas.

Thanks very much, Krusty 13.  I've checked my Virgin media hub and Web Safe is on so I'm somewhat relieved.  Hope Norton will consider this though - use of smart TVs is increasing and it would be good to have full security.

@marykirk: Please read this article to enhance the lines of defense. You at least should consider using a strong enough password to your wireless network (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK AES), and you can also learn how to stop other people using your connection without permission, such as enabling MAC address filtering.

When it comes to DNS, I'd share a list of "Free and Public DNS Servers" by Tim Fisher@ About:

Feel free to test one of 'em for potential better connection speed. :)
