The development team behind the Beam advanced router explain more about its inspiration and design. “Beam was designed for anyone with an online presence. More information about our lives is being collected than any other time in history. From getting hacked to the misuse and selling of private information, it can seem almost impossible to keep our data safe, but with Beam you don’t have to give up your information at all. Our goal was to make a product that anyone can use, not just the tech savvy. With Beam, the install is easy and the app allows you to stay in charge of your home network and configure Beam in the way that works best for you.
