I had the opportunity to try out the CUJO Smart Firewall this week. I was really impressed with the easy set up and the extensive features. The CUJO is blazing fast and doesn’t slow down my browsing experience!
CUJO Smart Firewall Product Description
CUJO is a smart firewall for the connected home, designed to bring business-level security to the home network. This one device will secure all devices connecting to the WiFi router. 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.
I love how it covers all devices connected to the network.
My computer, tablets, phones and even my Roku and printer are monitored from the palm of my hand!

The CUJO Smart Firewall Set Up Process
The set up process was fairly simple. After you get the CUJO connected to an open port on your router, it’s all done through the app on your phone. If you get stuck, you can call into their tech support to extra help.
The CUJO detects the type of devices connected to your network so you can easily recognize them. I was expecting to spend a much longer time on the setup process since we have a lot of devices, but the CUJO app detected and identified them all very quickly.
The CUJO Smart Firewall Profiles
You can set up different profiles and apply them to different devices. You have control over what each profile can access on the internet. You can set up a more restricted profile to control the devices that your children will access. You can set time limits to keep screen time in check. The app will show you when the device last accessed the internet, and you can even pause the internet from the app!
The CUJO Smart Firewall Monitoring
The app tracks activity that may be malicious from all of your connected devices. CUJO tells you the time the incident occurred along with what device and what the source was.
Now, I feel that my network is protected, and I’m taking an extra step to keep the kids safe online!
