Tech Talk // Stay Safe Online with CUJO Firewall
Disclosure: I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
I can’t wait to tell you about this new firewall I installed BY MYSELF! Yep! I installed the CUJO SMART FIREWALL a few days ago in just minutes! Out of the package there was a power adapter and ethernet cable. First I downloaded the CUJO app to my iPhone, and then followed the quick step by step tutorial to set up my account and get the CUJO connected to my router.
We didn’t have a firewall here at home and that was NO GOOD seeing how we have SO MANY devices online. Why weren’t’ we keeping everything secure? I just don’t know. With so many other things to keep track of here at home, keeping our home network secure wasn’t even on the list.
CUJO is keeping our home network safe and secure – it even lets us control what the kids access online and keeps them safe. We are talking business level internet security that is super fast (built with 1GB Ethernet). CUJO detects and blocks malicious sites and hacks. This is especially important to me since all my work is done at home from my laptop.
The parental controls are such a BONUS! I have set it up to avoid inappropriate sites and apps, while also managing access schedules. I can pause the internet, set time limits, change user profiles and settings, get alerts on my phone, and monitor social media which will be amazing when my kids are really active online.
There is no monthly fee for using CUJO. I can tell you that the customer service has been amazing. Once I had activated the CUJO from my iPhone app, I had a curtesy call from a tech support inquiring if I had any questions or concerns. I have since received a follow up call to let me know one of my devices might have had a wrong IP address and it wasn’t showing up on the app – meaning, it wasn’t protected. How cool is that!
Look how CUTE this firewall is too!
Its almost like it has a little personality winking at me letting me know our devices are SAFE!
