Abstract [en]

The growth of Internet of Things is steadily increasing, both in Sweden and globally. This relative new technology improves the lives of many; but at the price of their security, privacy and safety.

This thesis consists of a literature study and an online survey. It investigates what security, privacy and safety risks Internet of Things devices may bring, how aware people are about these risks, how the user can minimize the risk of being hacked or attacked and what manufacturers can do to make safer Internet of Thing devices.

The survey was created based on the risks related to Internet of Things devices which was found during the literature study.

It was possible to identify security, privacy and safety risks related to Internet of Things. It was also possible to find answers of how both users and manufacturers can protect their devices from being hacked. The survey showed that there was a correlation between how interested people are in technology and how aware they are of the risks with Internet of Things.

Internet of Things can be used to do DDoS attacks, espionage and eavesdropping. People who are interested in technology tends to protect themselves more actively (by changing default password and updating the software) compared to those who are not interested.
