Your Privacy Is Being Invaded.

We Don’t Think That’s OK.

We started Privacy Hero because we believe you should always have the right to privacy.

  • We believe you shouldn’t have to second guess which websites you visit because you’re worried about who might find out someday.

  • We believe you should have control over the amount of private info complete strangers have about your household’s browsing habits.

  • We believe safe, private internet access is only getting more important as more and more devices in your home become connected.

  • Most of all, we believe protecting your household’s privacy should be simple.
