Where did you get your WiFi router? Most people get theirs from their Internet Service Provider (ISP). But did you know that having a router from you ISP means they are taking responsibility for the router’s security? Should that scare you? Maybe just a little. Take, for example, the recent vulnerability from Comcast that made stealing your Wi-Fi password all too easy.
The truth is, ISPs have a checkered past when it comes to the router equipment provided to clients. So, do you trust your ISP to keep you safe? If not, It may be time to consider replacing your router.
One great option is the Eero router, which is security-minded from the get-go. Eero is also an expandable system, which comes with a router and add-on “Beacons.” The Beacons are plugged into wall outlets in any room, and they extend fast, reliable service to all areas of your home or office.

Throw in automatic updates, and Eero is a great “set and forget” system, which gives you blindingly fast, reliable Wi-Fi and peace of mind against attacks.
