Wi-Fi Security (Android)

This Article Applies to:

  • Small Office Protection

Wi-Fi security will check the Wi-Fi network to which the device is connected and may identify the following security issues:

  • Infected router / DNS Hijack
  • Insecure Wi-Fi network / weak or no encryption
  • Weak password into router's administration
  • Router's administration accessible from the internet
  • Vulnerability in the router (old firmware etc.)
  • Devices not protected (related to IP 6)

If a VPN is connected (any VPN), Wi-Fi Security may not work (but using a VPN means that your device is safe - if there is no problem in the VPN itself)
