Safe and Secure Wifi
eero is constantly working in the background to keep your network safe and secure. Traditional routers require customers to proactively search for, download, and install security updates. With eero, automatic software updates provide the latest security patches, bug fixes, and feature upgrades.

Or sign up for eero Secure+, which provides the additional protection of top-rated security apps like 1Password for password management, Malwarebytes for malware protection, and Encrypt.me for VPN for all your devices.
