Xfinity Gives Cybersecurity Service to Florida Customers for Free



As Floridians add more and more "smart" or digital devices to their homes, the need to make sure those devices are protected grows as well. With that in mind, Comcast is now including xFi Advanced Security, a feature that automatically protects devices from online threats, for free to customers in Florida who lease an xFi gateway. Comcast is the only provider to offer this service at no additional cost – a $72 annual value. New customers will receive Advanced Security immediately upon activating an xFi Gateway, and the feature will begin rolling out to 18 million existing eligible xFi customers over the coming weeks. It requires no software download or additional set-up other than logging into xFi via the mobile app or online, making it simple and easy to protect wired and WiFi connected devices in the home; including smart TVs or thermostats, or devices without keyboards or screens like security cameras or smart speakers.

Key features include: a daily list of digital security-related actions that were taken each day, preventing inadvertent visits to malicious sites and becoming a victim of phishing attacks, blocking remote access to smart devices from unknown/dangerous sources, monitoring of devices in real-time and delivering alerts when devices are behaving in unusual ways that could indicate a network threat, and the ability to adapt to the home network and get smarter to keep up with new threats over time.
