The WiFi slows to a crawl. Sometimes it’s just a bad connection, or there are a lot of devices accessing your network. Maybe someone has your password and is stealing your WiFi. Now there’s a way to check your WiFi usage in Windows.

Free App

A free app called Who is On My WiFi lets you find out what is going on.  You need to worry about your WiFi network because it can be risky having an unsecured network. If your WiFi is unmonitored, hackers could access your wireless signal and cause you lots of trouble.


Stay Safe

Even with encryption, wireless networks can be cracked, and routers only tell you who is on your network at a given moment. If intruders have accessed your network before or after you check, you won’t know they were there. Here are some options that can help keep your network safe.

Here’s How

If you think someone is using your wifi, follow these steps:

  • Install Who is On My WiFi.
  • Open the app, then follow the tutorial steps. Your network scan should start.
  • Notice the list of IP addresses connected to your network. Each device should have a MAC address, as well as the local IP address of the modem you use to connect to the Internet.
  • Identify the different devices connected to your network. Assign labels to your devices so you can tell which IP address belongs to which device. You can assign labels by using the Descriptionbox. Click Save. If you know your MAC addresses, you’ll have a much easier time identifying which device is which.
  • Look for unknown devices on your WiFi network. If unauthorized users are on, you’ll want to change your password.
