SoftPerfect WiFi Guard

Security of your Wi-Fi network for Windows, macOS and Linux

SoftPerfect WiFi Guard icon, owlSoftPerfect WiFi Guard is an essential tool for everyone running a small wireless network and striving to keep it safe and secure. Generally, modern Wi-Fi networks are well protected, but there are a number of weaknesses that can compromise your Wi-Fi password; this includes vulnerabilities in encryption and brute force attacks. As a result, someone can gain unauthorised access to your Internet connection and LAN and exploit them while staying unnoticed.

Perhaps, you can say: “No big deal, I have unlimited Internet traffic!”, but what about someone reading your personal emails, stealing private information or breaking the law online while using your Internet connection?

Here comes our little application: it will alert you if your network is used without your knowledge. WiFi Guard is a specialised network scanner that runs through your network at set intervals and reports immediately if it has found any new, unknown or unrecognised connected devices that could possibly belong to an intruder.

WARNING! To facilitate further development of WiFi Guard, we are introducing a licence fee. From 1 July 2017 WiFi Guard will become commercial software.

You can continue using the current free version as long as you like, however all WiFi Guard files downloaded after 30 June 2017 will require a licence key to work beyond the free trial period.

To thank our current users for their support, we offer a 50% pre-order discount. To take advantage of this offer, simply purchase a WiFi Guard licence before 1 July 2017 and use the licence key with the new WiFi Guard version that becomes available in July.
