It is never too early to start protect your family from the potential dangers of the internet. Of course the internet is fun and so much valuable information to offer, but it does come with some inherent risks, which is why you should have a smart firewall. CUJO is a smart firewall.
While the Cujo was easy to connect, it wasn’t flawless. I plugged the power in before the ethernet cord. I think that was enough to stall the set up until I went back and unplugged the coffee-cup-like Cujo device.
It scans for connected devices. Which — if you are like our household — the number has gone up astronomically in the past two years. From a couple cell phones and two laptops, there are now more than eight including some household-running boxes that do magic tricks for us.
You can assign devices to people and groups and pause the Internet. Once assigned to a person, it took a couple minutes to figure out how to “unassign” from a user. swipe to right on a device in the user’s assigned devices, delete and go to the new owner to assign — easy once you learn that it works much like the contacts in my phone. I still have not delved into the threat assessment directory. Being able to restrict our kids’ access to naughty and dangerous content was our primary concern and we’re not sure we’re willing to pay the annual or monthly fees for enhanced services, but much comes free with any CUJO purchase.
Within minutes of installing, we received alerts about malicious sites. Since then we have seen ads pop up on our devices that have a message that lets us know we are protected by our pal CUJO.
CUJO is a smart firewall that is cute and easy to use. Check out bestbuy.com or visit your local Best Buy to learn more!
