Hey Hydn, not a Firewalla owner, but would love to be :slight_smile: . I’ve watched reviews online, and it seems to offer the best home security to date. I had a Cujo but they went belly up so I’ve been eyeing Firewalla on Reddit to see what others say. So far I like what I see. Their app seems great. :+1:t2:


Nice Giveaway, thanks. :vulcan_salute:

Does Firewalla ever sell refurbished models? Thanks

I don’t think so. Not that I know of. But you can probably find used ones on eBay. Used devices like these are a great deal. Not much goes wrong with them over time. However, this giveaway is for new Firewalla devices as listed on Amazon.

I bought a Firewalla Gold for home and love it. Replaced my pfSense box, that I was always concerned about updating, was it working etc. Firewalla, has been a great addition to my home network. Now, if I win another, I will place it in my parents home, so i can more easily manage their network and keep them safe.
