In today’s mobile and fast-moving world, we can barely imagine our life without having access to Internet. With the high demand and thirst for Wi-Fi though, we inadvertently put our data privacy at risk which might lead to serious consequences. Just think about how much information can be extracted from your files or browsing history for example – credit cards, planned trips, issues… pretty much everything.
It can all get into the wrong hands. Not only that, but Internet is becoming a very dangerous place for our kids as well.

Without any hesitation, the number 1 prize goes to Keezel – this little device has the size of a mouse and the power of a tiger! It is one of a kind as it gives you something that home security devices don’t – you can use it everywhere: in the bar, on your work trips, to a friend’s house and, of course, at home. If we imagine that home security devices act like guards of your data privacy at home, the Keezel will be your personal bodyguard that goes everywhere with you.
Basically, it connects to the Wi-Fi network, makes sure that there are no threats trying to get through and then lets the network flow to your device. On top of that, you can use it with your PC, phone and tablet simultaneously and stay calm that it will keep you safe from cyber-attacks. Oh, adding to that – it blocks adverts and has anti-phishing protection !
Keezel is in fact a little treasure – it protects your data over unsecured Wi-Fi networks; it is also a 8000 mAh Power Bank; it comes with a 1-year free subscription to Premium VPN service;
This gadget may seem a little expensive but think about how much it can cost you to keep your data unprotected?

Here is number 2 – the DOJO ! No, it is not a little hedgehog sleeping on its pillow, it is a very powerful and smart security device for your Wi-Fi network. With its impressive design, it also can be used as home decoration. Unfortunately, DOJO is not portable and can only stay at home. Well, you can use it outside your home but you need to have access to the router in order to connect it. What makes DOJO unique is its ability to do intelligent learning and analyze the data on your home network. It never sleeps and once it detects a threat, its light would turn red and you will get a notification via the App.
DOJO is a product of BullGuard – the company is specialized in developing security products for the consumers’ digital world. If you decide to get one you will not only obtain a pretty pebble for your home but also push all virtual intruders away.

Naturally, the name speaks for itself. Norton Anti-Virus is among the most popular Anti-Virus Software products since the dawn of the Internet Age, if not earlier. As a leader in the digital security market, the company has developed its own home guard and by getting one of these, you don’t need a router anymore – Norton will do this job as well.
Not sure if we need to discuss the protection capabilities of this guy – viruses will be stopped and disinfected at your virtual door mat. Norton has capacity to watch over all your devices, no matter how many are hanging on the tree, they will be safe. Every time Norton detects a threat, you will get a notification on your phone.
We all worry that our children spend too much time on their phones, tablets or computers. With Norton, you can set a daily limit for each device and make sure that your kid also plays outside or spends some time doing homework.
Adding to its 5-star technical capabilities is the neat design. A shining home decoration on the outside but an alert keeper on the inside.

You have cooked your best meal, set the table nicely for the whole family, announced that it is time for dinner…And then you wait and nobody comes up.
With FIngerBox, you can easily pause all devices using the Wi-Fi and all your loved ones will show up at once.
At the same price as DOJO, it also offers a futuristic design and is very easy to configure and use. Its App will give a good deal of information and features – it can detect devices around your house even if they are not connected to the network or if they are, you can easily block them. Note: Blocking is not a recommended for your kids’ devices – it might get too serious !
FingBox can measure your Network performance, the speed of the internet connection and ( not sure why ) but it can give you a history of who ( which device ) has been to your house and when. Maybe if you are the Wolf-of-Wall street kind of person and throw huge parties in your place, the last bit might be good info for you.
Overall, Fingbox is a good guard for your home but it seems that there are certain activities it performs that cannot be controlled or disabled. So, if you don’t need all that tracking and monitoring but simply need a Home Network Security System, pick one of the others.

CUJO is another baby of BullGuard – it will protect your home network and all devices connected to it – computers, phones, tablets and all IoT stuff. Setup is easy and once it detects all your devices, you have the option to put some meaningful description behind each one of them instead of the DHCP pulled name. You can configure the device for website categories – you can block adult content, social networking, etc. but you can still add a certain website to a white list even if it falls within a blocked category. With CUJO watching over your network, you can set your firewall to low – this will give a huge boost to the speed of your internet. Still, I would not recommend it unless it is really necessary.
As a conclusion, CUJO has everything you need for a Home Network Sevurity guard but it takes the bottom place due to its higher price.
Unlike other trending gadgets, the Wi-FI Network Security Device is not something you buy for your comfort or just to be cool in front of your friends. Nowadays it is a necessity – it might literally save you from being robbed as you are chilling on your couch. The very fact that Portable Wi-Fi Security devices are stepping on the market in 2018 shows how important it is to protect your data everywhere, at any time. Sometimes hackers might only steal your credit card details and get some extra bucks, while at other times stealing your data is equal to stealing your life.
