    xFi protection is the most amazingly powerful easy to use WiFi security app. I’ve always been skeptical about using my WiFi do to Securiity threats. Now with xFi I can enjoy my high speed WiFi connection with amazing security features at ease. xFi is very easy to use with understanding instructions. With xFi I was able to instantly get protected. Most of all I’m able to see who’s on my WiFi. I had no clue anyone with Little knowledge could steal your WiFi and use it to read your private information even use your internet data at your expense. I had about 6 threats removed from my WiFi connection literally 10 seconds after installing xFi security app. I’m now able to see who’s on and off my WiFi. Now I can stop any unknown phone, laptop, computer most of all spy technology and more at a push of a button. With xFi security I can now speed up my WiFi connection also run a connection test on any device. There’s easy to use troubleshooting for any device having trouble connecting to your WiFi. xFi has much more features to get that stress of being hacked off your shoulders. It’s a must have security app. I recommend anyone having troubles or not having any troubles to prevent any threats and all to install xFi security app. This amazing security app from xFi is a huge relief to me and my family. Thank you xFi for a job well done. Regards Mr. Santiago
  • Terrible app, by a terrible corporation!


    By Sean Hannity Fox News
    Where do I even start? We first got Xfinity years back for homeschooling, it was $10 a month for around 15Mbps. Very reasonable at the time, but the internet has changed, and obviously 15Mbps is nowhere near fast enough today. So a few years ago I upgraded to 50 Mbps, and was charged somewhere around $50 a month. Fine, the internet was fast enough for my needs. But 12 months later, the price doubled. So, I called and got a better deal. Again, 12 months later, price was bumped up. Same thing, except this time they forced me to sign up for a tv service I didn’t want or need in order to get a lower internet price, which ended up being more expensive than before. Now, for the problems with the app. First impressions after downloading it, VERY confusing. No clear way to set up a home, way too many options. This last month I went over 250 GB and was charged an extra $40. Absolutely ABSURD. Nowhere on the app or Xfinitys website is there a spot to see what device pushed me over. I usually never use more than 800GB in a month, but somehow this month I am pushing 1500 GB?! Xfinity is a greedy, corrupt, monopoly corporation that puts profits first. I live in a large city, and Xfinity and Satellite are the only two options. If Xfinity’s competitor from the county next to mine served our area, we would have no data limits and the price would be less than half of what Xfinity charges! SHAME ON ALL GREEDY CAPITALIST MONOPOLIES!
  • Okay. Could be better. Please add a data usage feature.


    By Wiricijebrjeb
    So, this app is great for being able to change wi-fi settings in your xfinity modem/router. But, at times it seems like when I apply new settings things can get chaotic. Such as the wifi restarting itself and the settings not applying. Now my biggest complaint is within the app you can see how much "usage" everyone has been doing on the internet. Now when I say usage I mean, how much time everyones spent using the internet. I'd much rather be able to see just how much data everyone has been using or how much each device is using in data because of Comcasts new 1000 gigabyte internet plans. Going over the 1000 gigs you have to pay an extra $10 for another 50 gigabytes. So instead of knowing how much everyone's using the internet, you get to see the amount of "usage" or who's been using the internet more which doesn't help because someone could just be we surfing but be on the longest and show up as the one who's using the internet the most. So please, PLEASE, add a feature that allows you to see just how much each person or each device on your network is using so you can keep track of who's using to much data and so you don't go over your restricting 1000gb bandwidth limit and charge your loyal customers more. But Comcast/xfinity usually only seems to be about the money these days.
  • Can’t access any of the main menu features on the app


    By pookal
    It’s very irritating that the app refuses to exit out of the virtual chat when I open it. I’ve been having connectivity issues with my WiFi and xfinity isn’t able to do a thing every time I call. They make it virtually impossible to talk to an actual representative and when you’re finally able to get in touch with someone they blame it on a local power outage and they give you a time frame when it should come back up. Mind you that I was told 4 different time frames each time I was able to “chat” with someone and that I would receive a text and call for when the internet would come back up. It’s been almost 2 days since my internet has apparently been down with a supposed timeframe that it would be up by the end of the first day and no such text has arrived. The only way I have somewhat of a connection is if I restart the gateway from xFi app. It gives me internet for a few hours give or take before I have to do it again. However when I click on the app to restart the gateway, I can’t access the main menu or any settings on the app because when I open it, it forces me to either activate a new gateway ,speak with the virtual robot, or sign out. There’s no way for me to exit out of these options. Please fix this issue at least because you can’t even resolve an internet issue.
  • Features in app

    Love the app overall. Bug fixes needed. I tried to use the app to let them know there are bugs but the computer assistants doesn’t want to let me. 1.bug: I pause a device or group of them but within 24 they are unpaused again. Tried then to set time limits but each day is different so this doesn’t help. 2.bug. They have been able to unconnected on their device and they reconnect to the 2nd line and get on even though I paused them. (Sneaky 9 yr olds.) 3. No a bug but needed. I want to be able to have my kids earn their time so instead of a set limit I wish I could set a timer. You earned 1 hr. If you just keep changing the quantity of time they get you can do this but it is a hassle. I will update review if they fix the pause feature so it doesn’t reset everyday. This would move it up to a 4 of 5 star because I really do love the app. It makes me a witchy mom but school comes first not everything else. I can shut everything down or school and work wouldn’t go on. We have on average around 40-60 devices going at a time and they seem to keep up. (Work involves finding bugs on devices) That’s an average of 3.5 devices per person. If I can shut some down and keep them down then our usage goes to others. Thank witchy mom.
  • Poor customer service


    By glesgalass
    We have experienced intermittent internet service since we upgraded modem and speed to 600. Last week, our service was interrupted on 2 occasions for several hours each time. I have contacted customer service a few times. Again, I had occasion to call the other day. I was on the phone with service rep for 25 minutes before she hung up on me. I informed her I had restarted modem twice prior to calling. I also informed her I ran a speed check etc. She asked which device caused the problem. I explained it was the internet connection not any device. She placed me on hold several times. I suggested a technician check connection outside my home. Again I was placed on hold as she stated she was scheduling a day for technician to check for problems. I informed her that since upgrading and adding extra speed etc, we had experienced problems. She ended call with me, which was most definitely unprofessional. She did not contact me after the fact, hence the negative review. The customer service was unacceptable, there was no resolution and no technician came to check anything. I have now awarded 1 star as I have received no response or assistance from anyone. I would like to escalate to a manager, but have noticed other individuals have also received negative customer service. Thank you.
  • Want more freedom on....


    By Kryptonite7584
    I love the app. But I gave it three stars because it only lets you set the sleep time for pre-adjusted times. I’m not able to set my own sleep and wake times. Which would be very, very useful if I could. Like for example with the pre-adjusted time I have the Wi-Fi paused at 9:30pmand I can only have turned back on all the way up to 8:30am. I would like to be able to set my own sleep and wake time. Like for instance I have my children’s Wi-Fi paused at 9:30 PM and I would like to have it un-paused at 5:00pm the next day. Because my room is on the other side of the house so I have the Wi-Fi paused at 9:30pm to make sure my children are not getting on their games, phones etc. after I go to bed. In the mornings my children get up and go to school. Well sometimes I’m not always home when they get home from school. They know they are to do their homework before playing on the games, phones etc. but as anyone should know any teenager is not going to follow through on what they are supposed to do especially when a parent is not home to make sure they do as their told. That’s why I would like to be able to set the sleep and wake time as to what fits my lifestyle.
  • Assistance with new modem activation


    By Doxiesusie
    After much disappointing WiFi service and speed in my home, it was suggested to swap in my modem at one of the Xfinity’s stores for another which I did yesterday afternoon. By evening, I did not have things right because nothing was working and now, no phone line active. I elected to “chat” for help (now 10pm) and was connected to a tech savvy person, Prathamesh. Thank goodness! What a kind and patient employee who started the process of getting me activated. After an hour, I lost Prathamesh from the several browser drops and had hoped it would get resolved. By the time I finished my evening, I went back to check the modem and I was fully up and running!!! I was thrilled and so grateful to Prathamesh for continuing on and completing the process for me! I commend and kudos to Comcast/Infinity for having such an outstanding and totally Customer Service oriented employee in your company! It has turned my opinion of the Customer Service Dept around. Because of Prathamesh, I will continue to be one of Comcast/Xfinity’s customers. Thank you, Cherie Alley
  • Do not use xfinity unless you have to


    By Jyy900
    If i had the availability to use any other provider i would. Comcast/xfinity has always been just absolute garbage. Such a money hungry corporation, random changes in your monthly charges. RANDOMLY - For two months i went through “100% of my data” and this was after about 20 months with xfinity. My life did not change bro, how and where did data percentage even come from for my wifi. And with no changes to my life, i am no longer using “100% of my data” for my wifi. Don't know how it resolved itself but for 2 months apparently i used crazy amounts of wifi - with a 2 person household and NOT the cheapest plan whatsoever. I can see when i made payments for the last 2 years, but i cant seem to be able to see how much i actually paid each month. But i can guarantee, whatever amount they say the plan or “promotion” is, will not be the amount you will be paying. You will be blasted with dumb fees, and you will also not get the quality wifi that is promised from the promotions. Takes time but you will see how money hungry xfinity really is. Outsourced customer service with a frontline of an “xfinity assistant” on the mobile apps that accomplish nothing. False promises and false advertising
