Does Winston protect from someone being able to hack into your IoT devices?

While Winston isn’t specifically a cybersecurity device, it does add two strong defenses to a home network:

First, Winston helps prevent hacking of your home network. See this article about how Winston supplements a Firewall for more details.

Second, Winston prevents DNS rebinding by intercepting all unencrypted DNS requests on your home network and re-routing them to Cloudflare. This prevents the most common method of attack on connected devices.
