McAfee will soon include a new skill in Alexa to allow the user to keep a check on the security of the network and router through voice command. At the MWC 2018, the security products provider talked about a capability that does not require the user to open the app to make the required settings to ensure or check the security of the network.

According to McAfee, all the routers running on the McAfee Secure Home Platform will automatically get the Alexa functionality. McAfee’s Secure Home Platform was announced during CES 2018 and it lets the user extend desktop security scans across all the network connected devices including smart home devices.

In a press release, McAfee’s executive VP, John Giamatteo, said the company’s security solutions “must fit seamlessly into the way they already live their lives. With the McAfee Secure Home Platform skill for Alexa, we are giving customers the added convenience of simply managing their home’s network security using their voice.”
