Bitdefender BOX – Must have protection for your smart gadgets

Author at TechGenyz Contributor
Bitdefender BOX

Gone are the days where we used antivirus and it provided protection only to the device it was installed on. Its scope is very limited. Today we use a number of internet-connected devices such as laptops, smartphones, smart TVs, smart locks, webcams, and gaming consoles. Bitdefender has the solution with its BOX. It is a first of its kind, a piece of hardware that provides protection to each one of its connected devices.

Every device connects to the internet in a different way with varying levels of security. Most of the Wi-Fi routers don’t check the kind of traffic they are generating or receiving. The Bitdefender BOX has been designed with security in mind and comes with a very simple setup. Anybody, even without IT knowledge, can use it.

How does Bitdefender BOX work?

We need to start with setting up the app for which the Bitdefender Central App has to be downloaded and installed. The Bitdefender BOX can be installed very simply and quickly by following the step by step instructions. The gadget starts working within five minutes and connects all the Wi-Fi networks and devices. First, view the list of all the devices you have to connect to and then apply security rules for each one of them. It’s advisable that you always take notice of your network activity. The settings of the Bitdefender Box can be customized, and separate profiles can be created for different devices.
