Depending on the nature of the threat that requires your attention, the following tips can help you take action to resolve the threat.
Quarantine Your Device
If one of your devices has been compromised, you can use xFi to pause its access or disconnect it from your home network. This will keep it from endangering other devices on your network.
Update Your Software
Keep your device’s software or firmware current to ensure you’ve got the latest security updates. Use the update feature usually found in your device’s settings or check with the device manufacturer.
Run Antivirus Software
One of the best ways to defend against network threats is by running antivirus software. If you haven’t already, install a software program, keep it updated, and run scheduled scans to keep devices free from viruses.

Restart Your Device
After updating your device’s software, be sure it restarts. This will complete the update and also, stop any existing communication with malicious sites.
Check Your Port Forwards
Open ports on your home network give potential access to malicious attackers. Ensure your port forwards are set up correctly for your devices. Learn about port forwards and how to set them up using xFi.
