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 SmartTV and 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:

wireless network signal.

Internet when it is not in use.
• Use strong passwords for all your Internet accounts (Netflix, Facebook, Skype, etc.). If your TV has a
camera, recess the camera into the TV’s bezel when it is not in use. Recessing the camera makes it
• 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 users install
only those authorized apps provided by Samsung through Samsung Smart Hub.
