Yes, you can install all sorts of software in your PC to tunnel all your bandwidth through a secure VPN, block ads, or enjoy anonymous computing through the Tor network. If you’re looking for a simpler way to get all that, however, you can simply install a Flter security router on your network.
Designed to hook up to your router or modem either over Wi-Fi or a wired Ethernet connection, it’s designed to serve as an alternative access point for all your devices. Basically, you connect to it instead of the router and enjoy the more robust security features it offers without having to install a single extra software.
Flter is a cylinder-shaped device measuring 2.5 x 5 inches (diameter x height), so it should be easy to find space for in any shelf or table around the house. It comes with built-in VPN access to a series of servers in over 20 countries, as well as an integrated ad-blocker to make your online experience completely ad-free. For ultra-secure computing, it also comes with built-in access to the Tor network.
It comes with an accompanying app where you can easily turn any security feature on and off, as well as alter blocked and whitelisted websites. There’s apps for Macs, Windows, Android, iOS, and Linux, too, so you should be able to control it whatever device you’re using.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for Flter. You can reserve one for pledges starting at $100.
