Engadget: California bans default passwords on any internet-connected device

Engadget: California bans default passwords on any internet-connected device. “In less than two years, anything that can connect to the internet will come with a unique password — that is, if it’s produced or sold in California. The ‘Information Privacy: Connected Devices’ bill that comes into effect on January 1, 2020, effectively bans pre-installed and hard-coded default passwords. It only took the authorities about two weeks to approve the proposal made by the state senate.”
