Can WiFi Guard protect me when I use a public Wi-Fi?   28 January 2018, 08:00

It seems a nice and simple tool to show me devices that connect to my router.
I'd like to know, can WiFi Guard protect me when I'm using a public Wi-Fi?

Thanks! ok, yes, thumb up

The purpose of WiFi Guard is to alert you when your own network might have been compromised. WiFi Guard periodically scans your network and reports if it has found a device that wasn't there before.

It does not make sense to use it in a public network as normally there are many other users connected to it, and you probably don't want to be alerted about them.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
