Armor Trial Automatically Activated

I recently updated my RAX120 and noticed that the Armor functionality was available.  I did some reading on it but decided against enabling the trial or paying for a subscription.  This was about a week ago.


Tonight I started receiving Armor notifications from the Nighthawk app on my iOS device and when I logged in, I could see that the Armor trial had been activated.  No-one else has access to my router.


I have now disabled Armor in the Nighthawk app but I'm a little annoyed that it activated without my consent.


Has anyone else experienced the Armor trial being automatically activated?

Re: Armor Trial Automatically Activated

The same thing happend to me.  I was already annoyed that the new firmware was advertising Armor and parental control software to me, and now it is forcefully opting me into a service that is scanning my on-prem devices?  That's it, I'm permanently done with Netgear!  This is very nefarious behavior and I can never trust them again.

I had the same problem today with my router too! I have the same router and started getting the messages today as well. I’m the only one who has access to it also. Fortunately I have a copy of the older firmware and replaced the new firmware with it! I also disabled the auto update as well!
