Coveted security certificate for the MagentaZuhause app

Smart devices can now be found in almost every household. They switch on lights when motion is detected, remind us when we leave the house that the windows are open, or ensure the right temperature for our well-being. The smart home evaluates data from its sensors for this purpose. Data that needs to be well protected so that it does not fall into the wrong hands.

That’s why Telekom regularly has its MagentaZuhause app put through its paces by independent experts. Together with AV-TEST GmbH, the renowned Magdeburg-based institute for IT security, Telekom is constantly improving the app’s security.

The comprehensive security check examines how secure communication is with connected devices. The latest certification by AV-TEST shows that the MagentaZuhause app is well protected against potential hacker attacks and that communication is secure. This means that third parties can neither read nor intercept the data during transmission. Manipulation of data and devices by third parties is also reliably prevented.

This means that networked door locks, security cameras and alarm detectors are protected against attacks and do not become a gateway for burglars.

To further minimize risks in the networked home, secure network settings, strong passwords and regular updates are important. Telekom also provides support here with the MagentaZuhause app.

In addition, the app’s privacy statements are among the best on the market in terms of their comprehensiveness and completeness.
