Ease of Use
So, I am always concerned if I am going to need a special technology degree to hook up my new device. CUJO is super simple to get started. Just plug it into your network with the included cables. THAT IS IT! Once it is plugged in you download the CUJO app to get everything set up. There is even a phone number you can call if you need extra support.
The app is pretty self-explanatory. Once your CUJO is set up and connected to your network and has found all of your devices, you assign devices to the members of your family. After they are assigned you can apply the parental controls if desired. I am all about pausing the internet during family time.
The idea behind the CUJO Smart Firewall is great and the app is super simple to use. It has been hooked up for a couple weeks now and it has worked like a charm. If you have kids or teenagers this is a perfect device for your house. It really does help you keep an eye on what is going on while they are on the internet and helps you put controls in place to reinforce the rules.
