  • Given that this is an Apple forum, there's not likely anyone here who could give a definitive answer. However, you use all kinds of servers (including this one, for which you had to supply your Apple account credentials), and probably have not been frequently hacked (if ever) so I wouldn't worry too much. My opinion, of course. I have a switch which controls my outside yard light - worst thing that can happen is to make it turn on, and waste a small amount of electricity (given that the lights are low-wattage LED.)
