Eero Plus - View Devices/Sites that Triggered "Threat"
I love eero Plus and the fact that it is protecting our network. What would be nice is under the Activity log where it shows Threat Blocks for Botnet, Malware, Phising, Spyware (and ditto for Content Filters), it would be nice to be able to click on what was blocked and see the following:
- Device that was the source of the block (Was it my TV, my laptop or my iPhone)
- Site that was visited
- What the threat was that was blocked, if it's a known threat
Obviously there are privacy concerns so you should be able to toggle the above feature on or off.
Details please! We know you have them. I just got the erro pro 6 and have the 30 day security trial. I will not purchase it because I don't know what exactly is being blocked. Only listing categories is too veague for me. For all I know it's fake.
Adding my vote.
”Trust us, we know what we’re doing” can only be stretched so far. Let’s be able to see what’s happening on our networks. Pretty-please?
I now remembered why I cancelled eero Secure before, I'm going to do it again. None of my streaming devices can play Disney+ (kids profile) with Advanced Security turned on. Just checking the Activity in the eero app, it shows my Sony TV attempting to connect to phishing sites 20 times in an hour. Because eero doesn't say which, I have no idea what to to add to the allowlist.
Going back to opendns for some basic security (not sure eero does any better than preventing DNS lookups). Or install pihole on a raspberry pi.
We 100% agree. The fact this is missing makes the stats not super helpful. How can we solve if the trigger data is not available.
I would like to be able to see what content is being filtered. I can see that adult content is being filtered from my child’s device, but I want to know if it’s a website she was trying to visit or if it was a website that was filtered from a google search.
I know its been 3-yrs on this topic. However, this needs more votes. Eero what’s the point of leaving the end-user in an ignorant bliss? It’s important to know what is malicious, what is really being blocked and etc… Please add to your future roadmap.🙏🏾 🙏🏾🙏🏾 I have no idea what I am paying for but a pretty picture …
Just got my Eeeros today. Bought them to replace a Netgear mesh product that has been acting strange. Setup was great - I’m a tech guy with 35 years experience, and recognize seamless tech and superb interfaces. Looking around the UI - surprised to find supposed malware filtered on my network, but can’t determine what caused it. Setup some profiles (one per device) and narrowed down to an iOS device (also surprising). Just signed up in the community so I could upvote this thread and request this capability. Chance of purchasing any monthly service just went to zero. C’MON AMAZON/EERO MAKE IT HAPPEN! Not holding my breath, starting a search for another mesh router, will swap out in a sec if I find it.
Just echoing what's already been said. Would be happy to pay for Secure+ if it included logs (like nearly every other low end router out there).
My Internet provider (Spectrum) sent me a vague email saying, based on internet traffic, "A device using your network may be infected by malicious software." I was about to chew them out for being USELESS, when I thought to check my Eero. Spectrum can at least tell which IP address is indicating malicious software, Eero can't (or won't) even do that, making it WORSE THAN USELESS.
I have antivirus scanners on all my PCs, but Eero is in the unique position of looking at independent traffic. So work with us, Eero, and tell us how to fix our problem instead of gloating to yourself.
Would be great to see a list of websites my son has visited on his computer. If EERO is doing this, the fact that he deletes his web history would not matter. Blocking websites is not enough
Crazy that after 3 years nothing has been done to address this. I’m seeing blocked threats on my TV, which makes me question the accuracy of the reporting.
3 years ? Come on folks make this happen already.
Although I love my eero devices, just like everyone else that has been asking for the enhancements around the activities and details of threats blocked, etc., almost a year ago, someone else posted this in the forum and I decided to do some research. After my research and seeing how much this product could do for me (and keep in mind, with no yearly subscription), I decided to make the jump and acquire this new firewall that I am certain you will love as well. I got the Gold version. Check it out - https://firewalla.com.
PS I am still using my Eero's as my wifi but in bridge mode.
I'm getting malware threats on three devices on my network. I ran antivirus and antimalware on all of them without any hits. I factory reset the tablet and only reinstalled Disney+, Hulu, and Peacock, but I'm still getting the warnings. Unless one of those apps is the underlying cause (which I strongly doubt), it's either a false positive or something else in my network is trying to spread to other devices.
If eero isn't willing to tell me what is triggering the alerts, I will have to look for other options. Telling me that you know someone is trying to break into my house but not telling me how you know or where you detected a problem isn't constructive. I still have to do all the work myself to identify (and eventually fix) the problem, except that now I'm annoyed that the security system isn't sharing the information it has about it.
