Several tips on how to stay safe with Starlink were provided by Elon Musk on Thursday. He warned Ukrainians that Russian troops could target the high-speed internet service.

Starlink users in Ukraine are advised to only activate the service when they need it and to place the antenna as far from people as possible.

A second recommendation from Musk was to cover the antenna in a light camouflage, such as painting the antenna without any metal to avoid being noticed visually.

Musk said on Twitter that the only non-Russian communications system in part of Ukraine is Starlink, noting a security warning.
