If you have an Wifi 360 Pro (Eero) at home, you might be wondering how to make the most of its features and optimize your network performance. One of the best ways to do that is to use Eero Profiles, a feature that allows you to group and manage the devices on your network according to the users in your household.
What are Eero Profiles?
Eero Profiles empower you to manage all the devices on your network. Through the Eero app, you can create user profiles and assign specific devices to them. Once created, you can set schedules, administer manual pauses to control Internet access, and apply specific content filters with Eero Plus for the devices within each profile.
By enabling you to pause Internet access on your network, Profiles helps you preserve quality time with family or friends. Profiles is also here to make sure the most important daily necessities, like biology homework, are accomplished before other activities like social networking and online gaming.
How to Create and Manage Eero Profiles?
Creating profiles is easy and intuitive. To get started, you’ll first need to create profiles for the members of your household:
Open the Eero app and tap the Blue Plus in the upper right corner
Tap Add a Profile and enter the name of the profile you would like to create then tap Next
Select the devices you would like to add to the profile by tapping the Plus to the right of each device
Tap Save in the upper right of the app screen
You can also assign devices to individual profiles from the Dashboard of the app:
Open the Eero app (you should land on the Dashboard screen)
To locate the device tap on the Device Group it is associated with (Computers, Entertainment, Home, Persona or Blocked)
Tap the Device you would like to assign to a profile
Tap profile at the top of the page
Choose the profile
Note: To avoid conflict between various schedules and pauses, a device can only be assigned to one profile at a time. If you’d like to revoke access to a device that multiple people in your home use—the family room TV, for example—you may want to create a separate user profile for that device.
You can also delete user profiles from Profiles if you no longer need them. Please keep in mind that deleting a user profile will disassociate all devices assigned to that profile, thus making these devices free to add to other profiles.
What are the Benefits of Eero Profiles?
Eero Profiles offer you several benefits to enhance your network experience and security. Here are some of them:
You can set schedules for each profile to limit Internet access during certain times of the day, such as bedtime, dinner time, or study time. This way, you can ensure that your family members are focused on their priorities and not distracted by online activities.
You can also pause the Internet access for any profile at any time with a simple tap on the app. This is useful when you want to have some quality time with your family or friends, or when you need to discipline your kids for misbehaving.
You can also use Eero Plus, a subscription service that offers additional features and security for your network, to apply content filters for each profile. You can choose from four levels of filtering: None, Safe Search, Safe Search & Block Malware, or Safe Search, Block Malware & Block Adult Content. This way, you can protect your family members from harmful or inappropriate content online.
You can also use Eero Plus to access advanced security features for your network, such as ad blocking, threat scans, and VPN protection. You can also monitor the activity and usage of each profile and device on your network through the app.
Eero Profiles is a powerful feature that allows you to manage and customize your network according to the needs and preferences of your household. By creating and managing profiles, you can control the Internet access, content filtering, and security of each device on your network. You can also use Eero Plus to access more features and benefits for your network. Eero Profiles is a great way to optimize your network performance and enhance your online experience.
