Security Tips, Tricks and Links

Protect your home computer – quickly and easily.
The Cox Security Suite powered by McAfee® is a quick and easy way to protect your family’s online experience. Free and easy to install, the Cox Security Suite provides the latest in firewall protection and anti-virus programs to safeguard your computer from potential online hazards. It also features parental controls to help you manage and guide your children’s Internet use.

Keep your wireless security up to date.
When was the last time you checked the security of your home’s wireless network? The security program you originally set up may now be out of date, leaving your WiFi and your home computer vulnerable to hackers and unauthorized users. To confirm the security of your wireless network, use Home Network Security Check, an easy-to-use online tool that’s free with our High Speed Internet service. Home Network Security Check will thoroughly review your home WiFi network and its security within minutes to provide simple recommendations if any any issues are discovered.
