Orbi and Armor/Bitdefender Worth it?

I am new to the Orbi system and have the trial of the Armor/Bitdefender. is this worth it to pay the subscription fee for? i do not plan to install the apps to devices but is the service on the router to block/manage traffic worth it? I am a former Mac user so the use of AV tools is not standard. 🙂

I am debating and leaning that it is worth it on the router but wanted advice.

 

thanks in advance.

I agree with @FURRYe38 that you are far more likely to get information from the Armor community forum than from this forum.  Most of the people who seem to be watching this forum have not activated Armor.  I certainly never have, not even for a 'trial'.  So, we don't have an experience to draw on.

 

Good Luck

I love my Orbi.
