Now a days every one of us has a Wi-Fi network at our home or at the work place. But have you ever cared about the security and protection of your Wi-Fi network? Most of the routers comes with advanced security and protection, but they can still be hacked using an external device such as a phone, tablet or a laptop.
Wi-Fi Guard is a free utility that lets you protect your Wi-Fi network very easily. It always notifies you when a new device is connected to your Wi-Fi network. If you recognize the device then you can mark the device as known, else you can view the properties and MAC address of the unknown device. The software scans your network and gives you results in real-time. It automatically scans the network after intervals of time that are chosen by you. And after every scan it notifies you about the unknown devices the software has discovered.
The UI of the software is very simple, minimalistic and very easy to use. All the options are aligned properly in the top menu bar. The list and details of devices in your network is listed in tabular form. You can view the IP address and MAC address of a device by clicking on properties button, you can even view host name and add comments about the device in the comments text box.
You can customize the scanning options by choosing the rescan network time interval and number of devices to be simultaneously scanned. You can also minimize the software to the system tray and set it to run at every Windows start-up.
This is a nice security and protection utility for your Wi-Fi network, as it helps you secure your identity and get rid of unwanted and unknown devices that secretly connect to your network. The features this software possess might already be available in your router under the DHCP Client List page, but this software is really fast as compared to the Router’s web UI – and it is a lot easier to use too.
