Nest's "ease of use" imperative plus poor integration with Google security has turned it into a hacker's playground

But Nest does offer 2FA though…


I’m shocked they haven’t started calling Nest hackers “cuckoos” yet.

Cuckoo birds have long been seen as parasites, because they lay their eggs in the nests of other birds.


Nest does have 2FA, they strongly recommend people use it too. Not sure why we’re blaming Nest for people not bothering to secure their Internet devices. This problem is rampant with internet connected hardware, and Nest is one of the better companies - they keep their products patched & updated.
