I am super pleased to introduce you to the CUJO smart firewall. If you have a connected home like I do, then you need to RUN to Best Buy and get one too. Keep reading to find out all the features and uses for CUJO to secure your network like a boss.
CUJO SMART FIREWALL
Would you leave your front door open and just hope nothing bad would happen? You would never do that, right?! Then why would you leave your home network unprotected? WiFi security and more is easy with CUJO. I can’t believe I didn’t have something like this sooner.
Business Level Internet Security
Yes, I have a secured network at home. I even have it password protected. We have antivirus and all that jazz on all of our computers. Here’s the thing though,I have 16 smart devices at my home. SIXTEEN. More than 3/4 of those don’t have an option to block anything. Here’s some of the devices that didn’t feel too secure before CUJO: my printer, Alexa, several tablets, apple tv, my security cameras and a couple smart TVs. Heck, I even have a wifi enabled scale. I didn’t realize that all those things provide an open door to cyber criminals and weirdos. CUJO secures all of these things and more!! Remember that weird story about a guy watching stuff on a baby monitor? Thank goodness we have a way to have business level security at home and make sure things stay safe for our families.
Parental controls just got way way easier. With CUJO its easy to set up user profiles and link their devices to them. You can create individual settings for each family member. Additionally, setting up schedules for internet use is easy as pie. This is done right in the app by the day and time. You can filter whatever websites and apps you choose AND set time limits for internet use like social media or video streaming. I might just set some filters for my hubs so that he pays more attention to me. JUST KIDDING. Maybe…
Guards All Your Devices
Do you have a smart doorbell? How about a connected thermostat? A video baby monitor in your child’s room? Or one million other devices? CUJO secures everything! From smartphones to laptops to TVs, baby monitors and even that wifi enabled scale I have in my bathroom!
Plug In CUJO To Your Router, Control It From Your Phone
I totally figured out how to plug in CUJO and download the app. Easy Peasy. Now the setup was a little more involved, however I must admit I loved my call to CUJO’s tech support. It’s probably one of my favorite things about this product. Apparently if you have an Xfinity router, there’s a little work around that has to be done to get CUJO set up on your network. The super nice and intelligent agent I had knew all about it and had me up and running in around 10 minutes. She assured me I could call back anytime for free subscription support(there is NO monthly fee for your CUJO). The app even has a video chat feature right inside it! 10/10 for customer service! Way to go CUJO!! Plus her accent was fun to listen too!
You probably will be able to set up yours with the awesome step-by-step directions in the app. (yes it’s got apps in the Apple App Store and in Google Play). Everything else in the app was very user intuitive!
Blazing Fast Speed
If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s something that slows down the internet. No worries with CUJO. It’s built with a Dual core 1GHz processor, 4GB flash memory and 1GB DDR SRAM memory inside. With CUJO you can have your internet and security too!
