SoftPerfect Wifi Guard can monitor your Wi-Fi network to find intruders. Therefore, the tool cannot only prevent others from stealing part of your bandwidth but also protect your private data, such as files and emails. Despite the evident complexities of the processes running under the hood, the program is easy to use. However, just like most similar software, it has quite a plain interface.

The tool works quite unobtrusively. It just scans your network at given intervals and alerts of any unauthorized presence. You can set the frequency of these explorations and the maximum number of devices to scan in each session. Likewise, you can view data about all the connected devices, including their IP and Mac addresses as well as their RTT (round-trip time). Luckily, the tool supports using various network adapters. Moreover, it has the advantage of detecting even those devices with a firewall that prevents them from responding to ping.

In general, SoftPerfect Wifi Guard is a cost-effective way to provide additional protection to your network. In this regard, this extremely light software product supplements the work of other software, like antivirus programs and firewalls.

Basic and simple network scanner for those who aren't familiar with technicalities of network security. I am not an IT person. I just wanted to know who connects to my home network and to keep our family safe. WiFi Guard does this job quickly and easily.
PS. It guards all networks, not only WiFi. It works for cable-connected networks too.

Excellent app. Super easy to use and very helpful in letting me know when someone joins my network. An additional benefit to increased security is that I know when my family members are back home, as their phones connect to wifi before they open the gate.

I use this S / W, so can I block someone who gets access to my WiFi without my permission?
