Benefits of Upgrading to a FlashRouter

When used with out of the box and with factory settings, default Linksys routers are full of bugs and backdoors. Consequently, hackers or snoopers can spy on your network activity. Businesses, including your Internet Service Provider, can monitor and monetize your online activity.

Flashing a Linksys router with Open Source firmware opens the door to a world of added network stability, increased range, and upgraded security. And, perhaps most importantly, Open Source firmware also allows for the integration of a Virtual Private Network onto your router, thereby keeping snoopers out of your network.

Feeling overwhelmed? No need. Every FlashRouter comes with access to the FlashRouters Support Team, who will help configure your router for the optimal configuration in your home environment! What’s more, the FlashRouters Support Team continually tests the latest firmware builds, making sure that our devices are properly updated and secured.

Celebrate Data Privacy Day with FlashRouters

Data Privacy Day

January 28th marks the day in which people around the world will recognize the importance of Internet privacy and data security. Data Privacy Day is more important than ever with the recent shutdown of Net Neutrality and firmware security vulnerabilities like the KRACK attack, which affected thousands of devices.

What is Data Privacy Day?

To those who may not know, Data Privacy Day in the United States and Canada began as an extension of Europe’s Data Protection Day. Data Protection Day is held in honor of the January 28, 1981 signing of Convention 108. This was the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection.

How Do I Get Involved?

You can get involved in Data Privacy Day almost anywhere. This is not limited to your home or work. Individuals can take action in these environments to help create a culture of privacy and support for the holiday’s theme of respecting privacy and safeguarding data.

This year, Data Privacy Day will focus on why privacy matters, privacy in the growing “Internet of Me,” as well as supporting a culture of privacy at work.

Luckily, the National Cyber Security Alliance, or NCSA, provides free privacy awareness and educational resources to help Internet users. These resources can help you spread the word about managing your privacy and especially the protection of your personal information.

FlashRouters Wants To Help

Here at FlashRouters, we are a big supporter of Internet privacy and security as well as the entire open source community. With our FlashRouters, individuals gain the ability to run secure virtual private networks on their home wireless routers. This increases the security of their network exponentially, protecting and securing their personal information.

Best Back To School Tech Gifts To Keep Your Child Safe

Back To School

Summer is coming to an end and you’re probably preparing to send a loved one off to college. The first year of college could be a scary experience — both for the parent and the kid. To put your mind at ease, we put together a list of items that’ll help keep your favorite student safe and up to date with the latest technology.

Top Five Tech Gifts for Student Security

1. A Virtual Private Network

A Virtual Private Network, or VPN, tunnels your online activity through encrypted servers worldwide to keep their e-mails, credit card numbers, and any other information safe and secure. They work so well that governments from China to Turkey to Russia are trying to ban them to be able to gain access to users’ activities worldwide.

Some preferred VPN providers include:

2. VPN Enabled FlashRouter With Easy-To-Use Privacy App

Why A VPN Router

Whether you will be living off campus or living in the dorms, chances are you’ll be connected to the campus network or a public network. These types of networks make their online information more vulnerable to hackers and identity thieves.

A FlashRouter is the best and simplest option for full network internet privacy and security. Using a FlashRouter will enable you to use your favorite VPN service throughout your whole household, apartment, or dorm. This will essentially keep every device connected to the FlashRouter safe and secure.

Better yet, FlashRouters has come out with a new VPN Privacy App to help streamline the VPN router experience. This app runs directly from any Internet browser, allowing for seamless access to your FlashRouter settings. This makes a FlashRouter the perfect tool for tech enthusiasts as well as new users such as college students.

3. TYLT Pro Powerbag Travel Backpack Charging Station

This backpack is an all around lifesaver for an on-the-move and busy college student. The TYLT Pro Powerbag features a built-in rechargeable 20,100 mAh battery. This battery is able to charge up to 3 devices, including ones with the newest USB Type-C plugs. It features a weather-resistant polyester outer shell that also has anti-theft RFID shielding, protecting you from potential hackers.

4. Tile Mate – Key Finder. Phone Finder. Anything Finder

Tile Mate

The Tile Mate Bluetooth tracker is a smart gift for anyone. 25% smaller than the original, it’s able to hook onto keychains or attach to any item that you may need help finding. Compatible with Apple iOS devices and Android devices, your college student will never have to pay a replacement key for lost dorm room keys.

5. Revolar – Personal Safety Device

Revolar

Sending off your child off to school can be a scary ordeal, especially if they’re going off far away. To help keep your mind at ease, the team over at Revolar has developed a personal safety device to help keep your child safe.

The Revolar team has three different products that can help keep your child safe. These products include the Revolar:

These devices essentially work as a discrete and easy to use panic button for people that could be in trouble. The devices work by connecting to your smartphone via Bluetooth, creating a secure connection to their Revolar app. With either one, two, or three clicks of the device, your location and a message can be sent to contacts according to your alert level.

When the user clicks the Revolar product one time, it sends a check-in to their contacts, letting them know that they are safe with a snapshot of their location and a pre-determined message. Two clicks send a yellow alert, letting contacts know that there could be trouble or if they’re in an uncomfortable situation along with their live location. This can also activate the “Ring Me” function, a fake phone call to get you out of situations quickly and safely.

With three clicks of the Revolar, your live location is sent to your contacts along with a distress message. This lets the contacts know that they should alert the authorities. Additionally, this red alert function can also alert 24/7 Emergency Response Services for those in dire need of assistance.

STEAGLE1.0 Laptop Webcam Cover

STEAGLE Webcam Cover

The STEAGLE1.0 Webcam Cover and the Mic-Lock provide a physical barrier between you and a potential hacker. Once a hacker installs a RAT — a remote administration tool — onto your computer, they could have access to what you see and hear through your computer by accessing your webcam and microphone. Adding these two products to your laptop ensure that no hackers are able to hear or see you if your machine is compromised.

Kensington Combination Cable Lock

Many laptops tend to go missing on college campuses, especially if left unattended in public places such as the cafeteria or the campus library. Using a Kensington lock can help deter would-be thieves. A Kensington lock will add an extra layer of security to your machine. This model features a keyless 4-wheel combination and a push button design for easy one handed operation.

Integral 16GB Crypto Drive – FIPS 197 Encrypted USB Drive

Integral USB Drive

For on-the-go college students with multiple gigabytes of documents and photos, a USB drive is a must. Even better, the Integral 16GB Crypto Drive comes with AES 256-bit hardware encryption. Data stored on the USB drive can only be accessed with a high strength alphanumeric 8-16 character password. After 6 failed attempts, the data on the drive is wiped. Contact details can also be set to view so the drive can be returned without compromised encrypted data.
