I have been using CUJO for over two weeks and I absolutely LOVE it! I consider myself to very cautious online and I take internet security very seriously. There’s only so much you can do to protect yourself from the threat of viruses and security threats even the most secure person can be vulnerable to unknown flaws that you can’t control.
Let’s face it even the most updated device or the latest security suite update can still leave us open to new vulnerabilities as every the internet is ever evolving and hackers are constantly learning new things that try to get your personal information.
That’s why CUJO was invented it is there to help even with the most technologically challenged individuals. CUJO literally sets up in minutes simply by connecting to your wireless router and downloading the CUJO app to your smartphone or tablet. That’s all you have to do while CUJO sets up the rest.
Once you’ve set up the app, CUJO will automatically scan your house for all types of wirelessly connected devices like smartphones, gaming consoles, smart appliances and so much more. It takes CUJO 48 hours to learn about each device connected to your home network and what type of device they are.
You can even set up profiles for each member of your household and have every device of their’s connected on it. With the parental control option, you can add each child’s devices to their account and manage things like filtering the internet, set time limits, monitor social media, and pause the internet.
CUJO will also tell you when your devices were last seen so if you have sneaky kids like I do you’ll know when they are their tablets or gaming consoles when they shouldn’t be and you can “boot” them from it either by setting the parental controls or pausing the internet for that child. This is especially beneficial for busy working parents because you can actually see what your child is doing online all without them really knowing.
Since installing CUJO 2 weeks ago, it has found over 40 threats to our household of 20+ connected devices from computers to tablets all safely secured and threats eliminated. The app alerts me of potential threats and allows me to view what the suspicious website is and what device accessed that particular website.
I highly recommend this product to any household that has a lot of devices connected via WiFi and those who have young children or teenagers. CUJO retails for $249 and you can purchase it from Best Buy. It makes the perfect gift for the connected household this holiday season.
