Having a Wi-Fi network at home makes it very easy for you to access the Internet from all corners of your house but at the same time it increases the risk of an uninvited intruder hacking into your network. Have you ever wondered if there was a simple way for you to get a list of devices connected to your Wi-Fi network so that you can not only easily diagnose network problems but also detect the presence of uninvited malicious users on your network?
- Secure your Wi-Fi network with Fing is a free Windows, Android and iOS app that shows all the devices that are connected to your Wi-Fi network including the device types, IP address, manufacturers and personalized device names. The best part is that it allows you to see all this network information either from your computer or even directly from your mobile device.
- The first step is that you need to connect to the network you wish to scan and launch the Fing app. It will automatically scan the entire network and show you detailed information about all the devices connected on it.
- You can tap on any device on the network to get more information about it, port scan it and even wake it up remotely from your mobile phone
- If you notice a device on your network that you do not necessarily recognize then chances are that it may be a network intruder.
