The Philips Hue ecosystem uses industry standard encryption and authentication techniques to ensure that unauthorized persons cannot gain access to your Philips Hue products. Philips Hue only connects to the internet securely via our cloud so devices in your home cannot be seen from the open internet. We keep our Hue products regularly updated with the latest security fixes and patches and we recommend all our consumers opt in for these by linking the Philips Hue bridge to a meethue.com
account and regularly checking and installing the Philips Hue app updates. Additionally, it is important to take steps to ensure your home network is secured from malicious attacks, in order to protect all of your devices including hue. For assistance on how to protect your home network please contact your internet service provider.
