Home Network Protection

Home Network Protection includes hacked router detection and a list of devices on your network. Home routers are highly vulnerable to malware used to launch distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS). This feature can identify a hacked router. Also provides you with an easy-to-access list  of connected devices, with devices categorized by type (e.g. printer, router, mobile device, etc.), to show you who is connected.

Each device that is connected to your network is displayed in sonar view. Hover over an icon to view basic information about the device such as network name and date last seen. Click and icon to view detailed information about the device.

To display information for all connected devices in table view click ICON_LIST_VIEW. Table view displays the same data as sonar view but in an easy-to-read format. You can filter devices based on the following criteria using the drop-down menu:

devices connected to current network only

uncategorized devices

devices connected to all networks

There are two dialog windows displayed by the Home Network Protection module:

New device connected to network – If a previously unseen device connects to the network while the user is connected a notification will be displayed.

New network devices found – If you reconnect to your home network and a previously unseen device is present, a generic notification will be displayed.

In both cases the notification informs you that an unauthorized device is trying to connect to your network.

First time connected devices are highlighted with yellow star so that you can easily spot them.

Home Network Protection helps you identify a hacked router and increases your level of protection when connected to a foreign network.

Click Scan router to manually perform a scan of the router you are currently connected to.

MONITOR_RED WARNING

Do this on your own home router only! If you do this on other people's networks, be aware of potential danger.

When the router scan is complete, a notification with a link to basic information about the device will be shown.
