As the self appointed tech support for family and friends I’m seeing a growing trend/need I think in people needing help and advice in setting up a home network. I think there is market for this but I realize it may already being filled with the likes of Best Buy Geek Squad and Nerds In Site (Canada at least)
I believe most people have no clue what is at risk when using the internet and installing various “smart devices” on their home networks.
Pretty much everyone I know is running the ISP provided router/modem, reuse weak passwords etc
Whether people are willing to pay for this kind of service is another story however. They have to be convinced of the various threats that lurk and what they can do to better safeguard their privacy and data, as well as their children.
I would recommend Peplink routers to customers if willing to upgrade their equipment. But the very least would be to secure what they currently have as much as is possible and make recommendations on security best practices.
Was hoping people would comment on it share their experiences.
