What happened to Insight IPTV?

Formerly known as Insight IPTV, Insight Entertain recently had the URLs insightiptv .com and insight-vision.net stolen, so customers should be alerted to the fact that they must use the correct site. The URLs to use from now on are insightentertain.com or insightclub.net. Due to the lack of security available with the original VPS, or virtual private server, a brute force theft took place, meaning that the company no longer has access to these domains. Visitors to the new site are able to view a banner on the homepage informing them of the situation, namely that the domains were stolen a few days ago and customers should only buy on the new sites, as using the old ones could make them susceptible to fraud. In order to ensure this site is the real deal, you can read our in-depth review of this IPTV provider. A VPS, also known as a virtual private server, is provided by a web hosting company and runs its own operating system. It provides the company using the server with admin rights, as well as root access in order to install any required software. However, since the domains were stolen, Insight Entertain has taken measures to ensure this security breach does not happen again.

Has customer security been compromised?

Customers may be concerned that their security may be compromised if they use the new URLs. Fortunately, there is nothing to fear, as Insight Entertain has introduced a considerable number of new security measures. For example, there are now CAPTCHAs in place to distinguish whether a human or a bot is accessing the site. There are also password entry restrictions now on the site, in a measure to prevent a bot from gaining brute force access again. Additionally, Insight Entertain has changed where they are hosted, so they should not experience any issues with the security levels, as they did with the previous web host.

How has Insight Entertain been made secure?

If you are worried about your personal details, Insight Entertainment has offered reassurance that this theft only applied to the websites. All personal payment information has been kept secure, and the passwords use up to date encryption, so there is no reason why these should not be safe either. That being said, any cyber security expert would recommend changing the password you use with your Insight Entertain account, as an additional safety measure and to ensure your peace of mind. When setting a new password, make sure it does not match any other password you use for other sites, and make it a mixture of letters, numbers and special characters. When browsing the new Insight Entertain site, the padlock symbol on the left of the URL bar during the checkout process ensures all of your information is secure. IP addresses are logged for additional security, and your browser is verified whenever loading a new portal as another safety measure. At every stage during any checkout process, you are guided through the process on the Insight Club portal, which has been designed to offer the highest levels of security. Plus, if you want to log in to your account, don’t forget you will need to check the box under your email address and password to confirm you’re not a bot. If you use this account on a shared computer, don’t check the ‘Remember Me’ box in order to protect your personal information.

How can I stay safe online?

For those concerned about security when browsing the internet, using a VPN, or virtual private network, can help with protecting your information. This is because your IP address will be masked, and your connection is completely encrypted. There are several VPN providers you can try out at home, such as ExpressVPN – a renowned provider which allows you to connect up to three devices at once, safely and securely. If you want to see what other IPTV services are on offer, you can check out Philo or Lions IPTV, as with over 40 channels available in the basic package, there’s plenty of TV to sit back, relax and get watching.
