SoftPerfect Wifi Guard
Detect intruders on your wireless network

SoftPerfect Wifi Guard is a simple tool which makes it easy to detect intruders on your local network.

The program requires no installation (the Windows build, anyway) - just run it, and SoftPerfect Wifi Guard will quickly scan your network and display any devices it finds. Anything that's clearly a part of the infrastructure, like the PC you're working on or your router will be flagged as green, but everything else will be marked as red: a potential intruder.

If you recognise a device as legitimate - a network storage device, say, or another system on your network - then right-click it, select Properties, check "I know this computer or device" and it'll be removed from the danger list. Which, initially at list, will probably dwindle to nothing at all.

SoftPerfect Wifi Guard will scan your system every half hour, though, and if anything new and unknown has connected in the meantime then you'll be informed via a suitable pop-up alert.

Plainly this is no substitute for proper wireless network security, such as using the highest levels of encryption supported by all your network devices.

SoftPerfect Wifi Guard does provide a simple extra layer of protection, though. It's also lightweight and entirely free (no adware concerns), so if you're interested then you can try the program without suffering any hassles, penalties or problems.

Please note, the program is free for Windows and Linux, but the Mac version costs $9.99.

Version 1.0.6 (Changelog):

  • Linux version has been discontinued due to low demand.
  • Added custom command execution on detection of unknown devices.
  • Replaced XML config storage with a more reliable SQLite database.
  • Several minor tweaks and fixes throughout the application.

It's no substitute for real network security, but SoftPerfect Wifi Guard does provide a simple extra layer which might detect intruders

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.7

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.7 brings:

• Starred Messages
