Securing your home network

Learn how to take advantage of included security tools and about advanced security features.
Step 1: Decide what level of internet security you need

When using the internet, it is important to protect yourself from online threats, like phishing and malicious software.

Internet and network security is more than an anti-virus scanner on your computer. You might also choose to have other protection, such as:

  • •  A home network firewall
  • •  Encrypted VPN service
  • •  Enhanced browser security settings
  • •  Threat monitoring

When choosing the amount of internet security you need, consider the hazards you could encounter online and the amount of privacy you need. For instance, you may feel the need for more network protection if you find yourself on websites you do not completely trust.

Step 2: Choose a home network security provider

There are many options available for home network protection.

Your internet service provider may have internet security services available. If you have AT&T Fiber, you already have access to AT&T ActiveArmorSM security features.

AT&T ActiveArmor internet security is 24/7 proactive security for AT&T Fiber customers that helps stop threats before they get to you.¹ Your security is our top priority, which is why all AT&T Fiber plans include standard features with AT&T ActiveArmor at no extra charge.

You can access and manage your AT&T ActiveArmor internet security features with the AT&T Smart Home Manager app. You also have the option to unlock advanced privacy and protection features for $7/mo. (plus taxes) through the Smart Home Manager app.²

With the combined protection of standard and advanced ActiveArmor security features, you can better protect your personal data. In addition to encrypted VPN service, enhanced browser security, and threat monitoring, you’ll also receive alerts for at-risk devices, at-risk passwords, and leaks of personal information.³
