Rogers rolls out new security and surveillance features in Ignite Wifi Hub app – MobileSyrup


Rogers, a national telecommunications company based in Toronto, has announced new features for its “Ignite WiFi Hub” application that the Internet service provider (ISP) says will help improve control over home Wi-Fi.

The first of the new features is “Activity Time Details”. It allows customers to access an activity summary for each user profile and see the time spent on popular apps and websites while that profile is connected to home Wi-Fi.

Rogers indicated that this feature would be useful for parents to manage children’s online activity and time.

The other new feature, “Advanced Security,” can protect customer data and devices by constantly monitoring the Wi-Fi network for suspicious activity. If Advanced Security detects suspicious activity, it can block it in real time and provide alerts to users to help them resolve potential issues.

Rogers says Advanced Security can analyze activity sent through the “Ignite WiFi Gateway” and complements traditional antivirus software with “intelligent cyber threat protection for all connected devices” in a home.

These new features are in addition to other existing features of the Rogers Ignite WiFi Hub app, such as personalized connection profiles for family members. Other features include the ability to see who is online at home from the app, an easy way to check or reset the Wi-Fi password, and optimization tools to maximize Wi-Fi performance.

To use these features, customers need the free Ignite Wifi Hub app (available on the Play Store and App Store), as well as an Ignite Internet plan from Rogers with an Ignite Wifi Gateway modem.
