WiFi Intrusion Protection

WiFi is notoriously easy to hack, and what is worse is that hackers can come into our wireless network without us even knowing. Fingbox’s WiFi Intrusion Protection feature alerts you to attacks on your WiFi, so you can take action to protect your home.

What Attacks Can the Fingbox Wireless Intrusion Protection Feature Spot?

Fingbox tracks devices even before they get a valid network address in your network, making our Wireless Intrusion Protection feature fast to spot potential malicious behavior on your network.

Fingbox will alert you to:

What Will Happen If Fingbox Picks Up On An Attack?

Depending on your notification configurations, Fingbox will either send you a push notification and/or an email when an attack is detected.

This alert will tell you what the problem is and how best to deal with it.

For the first 24 hours after the attack is first detected you will also find an alert under the Requires Attention section on the Network tab.

After 24 hours if they are not detected again they will be automatically dismissed, but you can still access the notification by going to the Network tab and clicking on Recent Events on the top right of the Protection segment.
