Frequently asked questions

Learn more about how Avira SafeThings Router can help protect your home conected devices

  • What is Avira SafeThings?

    Avira SafeThings is a Wi-Fi router that secures all smart devices in the connected home, while supporting user privacy and placing devices beyond the reach of hackers.

  • Why is home network security important?

    Home network security prevents the unauthorized access and misuse of devices inside your own home network. Most connected devices (i.e. smart TVs, baby monitors, home alarm systems) in a smart home are not built with security in mind, making them vulnerable to hacking and hijacking.

  • How does Avira SafeThings work?

    Avira SafeThings uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to detect anomalies in the behavior of smart devices, automatically intercepting cyber-attacks, unauthorized remote access, malware, and other threats. The mobile app gives you visibility over all your connected devices, and displays a security status for each device.

  • What makes Avira SafeThings different from other routers?

    Avira SafeThings provides all the services of a high-speed, high-quality router—with security on top.

    Traditional routers are not built with security in mind. SafeThings includes award-winning technology by Avira, a security company with over 30 years of software security experience. Our router acts as a firewall for your home network, scanning all connected devices for vulnerabilities and preventing any device from being hacked into, hijacked, or spied on. It also ensures that you can use traditional smart devices, like laptops and mobile devices, without ever getting infected by malware or landing on harmful websites so long as they are connected to the router.

  • In which countries is Avira SafeThings available?

    Avira SafeThings is currently available in Germany, the UK, and France.

  • Do I still need a traditional security solution if I have Avira SafeThings?

    To add an extra layer of security, we advise you to install Avira Prime on your desktop computers, laptops, and smartphones.

  • How many devices can I connect to my home network?

    Avira SafeThings can support 2 wired LAN devices and almost any number of wireless devices in the smart home. The router uses two separate radios: one for 2.4GHz, and one for 5GHz. This means you can optimize your device connections based on Wi-Fi strength signal and internet speed.

  • What do I need to set up Avira SafeThings?

    You will need a LAN connection for the router and an iOS or Android mobile device with a mobile data plan. Download the Avira SafeThings application from the App Store or Play Store and simply follow the instructions to complete the setup. The Avira SafeThings app supports mobile devices with iOS 10 or later and Android 4.4 or later.

  • Do I need to update the software of Avira SafeThings?

    No. Avira SafeThings updates software patches automatically, without requiring you to update the firmware manually.
