eero Secure adds even more great features, including better parental controls, improved ad blocking, and historical network insights.
Safety and security for the connected home.
Wifi is no longer just how we connect to the internet. It’s how we stay connected with family, discover new things, plan our futures, and unwind after a long day. That’s why we’ve built eero. With eero and our TrueMesh technology, you can blanket your entire home in fast wifi. But eero is more than just an amazing mesh wifi system. It’s the tool that helps you manage your connected experiences, control what content your family can access, keep your devices protected against cyberthreats, and speed up the internet by limiting ads. Whether you’re working, learning, or playing from home, eero helps keep you and your family safe and secure.
If you love eero and want even more control at your fingertips, you need eero Secure. Secure enhances your eero with the tools you need to better manage your connected experience. And today, it’s getting even better. We’re excited to announce some big changes that make Secure even more powerful than before, including advanced content filters, Block and Allow Sites, dynamic ad blocking, and historical network insights.
Get more granular control with improved content filters.
There are just some things that certain family members aren’t ready to see—and you can’t always be there to cover impressionable eyes (or ears) when they stumble onto a scary movie. Content filters help ensure that your little ones only view parent-approved websites.
With Secure, you can easily set restrictions for designated devices based on age group—including pre-k, pre-teen, teen, and adult—or they can be customized based on content categories. With the latest Secure updates, we’re making content filters even better, giving parents more granular control. In addition to mature content and SafeSearch filters, we’ve added new filters for social media, YouTube, streaming, gaming, and more.
Introducing Block and Allow Sites.
While content filters are great, sometimes you need extra control over the sites your family can and can’t view. For these moments, we’re releasing Block and Allow Sites. Block lets you prevent particular websites from displaying on certain family members’ devices. So, if you don’t mind a little social media use, but they aren’t quite ready for Snapchat and Reddit, you can adjust access accordingly. On the flip side, Allow enables you to open web access to otherwise blocked websites.
Say goodbye to annoying pop-ups with Ad Block.
Tired of getting a million pop-up ads when you’re just trying to read an article? Secure helps improve your internet experience by blocking intrusive ads on your devices for a better, faster, and more private browsing and streaming experience. Ad Block is getting an upgrade in the latest version of Secure, now using a dynamic list of advertisers that is updated in real-time, giving you an even better ad blocking experience.
Identify trends and anomalies with Data Usage Insights
Smart devices using a stupid amount of data? See how much network data each of your eero-connected devices has been using. Subscribers get access to daily, weekly, and monthly snapshots that make it easy to spot trends and anomalies. And with access to data usage by profile, you can see how your family spends its time online so you can help them develop healthier internet habits.
