Eero Secure or Hardwired Firewall

Hello all.  I just recently signed up for Eero Secure, basic service.  My hardwired firewall will no longer be supported by the manufacturer.  Will I get the same level of protection for all of my connected devices including smart home ones?  Or would you recommend something like bitdefender box?   TIA.

  • Hello,

    It is hard to say as I don't know what options your previous firewall provided. I have linked an article below that goes over everything that eero Secure has to offer. Take a look at it and you'll see that eero Secure is a package to add additional security features to the eero system which is also secure with just itself.


    Thank you,

      Thanks James.  I’ll look into that.  

  • Is there a way for eero secure to notify you about the IP and location of potential attackers or where your data is being uploaded to?

      MrSaxy I would contact customer support, they’re very good and responsive.  

  • despite all the resources spent and a dedicated team in charge, we still keep hearing about incidents of huge data leakages from major corporates
