Plex Offers Secure Media Server Streaming with Latest Update

The latest free update to Plex promises to make your home media server more secure. “Plex has teamed up with DigiCert to provide free SSL certificates for its media servers, meaning that your Plex server will now use ‘top-grade encryption,’” explains Digital Trends. “Not only does this mean it will be difficult to snoop on your streams, but your Plex box is now less of a target for hackers as well.” Secure connection support is being pushed automatically to the Plex Home Theater, Web apps, the Android and Windows apps and the preview Roku app. Secure connection support will later be available for iOS, game consoles and smart TVs.
