Oh dear, with all the hackers around and the school year beginning, I was very happy to receive the CUJO Smart Firewall. I have been dreading this time as my teenager begins High School. I have seen them doing so many searches and surfing from one site to the other. It can get a bit overwhelming as their knowledge expands and goes to another level of guidance. Security is the most important thing at home. So, how do I keep my teen safe on the Internet? Well, the solution to my dilemma is CUJO Smart Firewall. The best part is that this device secures all your devices connected to the WiFi router, my whole network is secure!!! Plus, it is beyond easy to set up, even for those of us that aren’t technologically oriented. I gladly share How I Keep My Teen Safe On The Internet with you.
My hubby commented that he like the idea that this techy gadget fits in most places as a contemporary ornament as it is ultra white and not bulky but a perfect fit. My teenager was also very happy to see it fit perfectly in the allotted space. Since they are my designers, I was happy with its compact size and look.
What I found surprising was the fact that it was easy for anyone who is not technologically oriented to install. It was as easy as 1, 2, 3! First, you download the app, plug into the router and follow the in step app instruction. Download the app on your iPhone or smartphone. Then plug then Plug CUJO into the Router. Look at the lights talk to you. If it is not smiling it needs to get updated.
If the CUJO eyes are smiling, you are all set! If blinking, it means it is being updated. Wait till it is completed.
Once it is ready, you would need to reboot your computer. After registration, follow the instructions and connect to the router.
After completion, the CUJO eyes should be smiling again. Make sure all your devices connected to the same network. Wait a couple of days and your network devices will be updated. Here are the main features:

Parental Guidance is extremely important with teenagers. I have been cautious but allows space for growth and respect. I was taught that every action has a consequence. Therefore, with the guidance we can give responsibility and lay the right foundation we allow them to grow in the right direction which I would believe can be call monitoring. CUJO helps in avoiding inappropriate websites and apps as well as time management on social media and prevent malware. I am sure my hubby might want to monitor my time as well, lol.
CUJO detects and blocks malicious sites, viruses, and hacks. Think of it like antivirus for your entire network. Plus, CUJO lets you control what your kids access online and keep them safe. Be safe and get your CUJO at BestBuy.com in-store and online today. The Business level Security for the home package contains:

What is interesting to see is the result it shares with you in regards to the threats it is protecting you and your family. You can see the report on the app or wait for CUJO to send you an alert notification via email when it blocks an internet threat. Amazing indeed!
