Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
★★★ 7.99 USD is a little price to pay for your safety. Think how much time and money you will spent if someone crack your wifi password, illegally connect to your wifi router and hijack your credit card or bank account information. ★★★
★★★ Suggestions & Bug Report at: firstname.lastname@example.org ★★★
iNet Guardian protects your network by notifying you about the workstations that are connecting or disconnecting from the internet gateway.
Even you use a password protected wireless network, don't think that you are protected. WEP, WPA or WPA2 wireless security protocols can easily be hacked by third parties and your confidential information such e-mail password, online bank account password or credit card details can be hijacked.
After you run iNet Guardian, click Monitor button. As soon as a new device will connect to your internet gateway a notification will appear.
What's New in Version 3.0.1
- New interface.
- Moved from window app to popover app.
- Major improvement of new connect/disconnect of devices.
- Bugfix that cause the app to crash to some users.
- Memory leak fix.
- Removed Private IP, External IP, Gateway IP and Broadcast IP display.
- Added Mac Address and Vendor of the connected devices.
I put it on and leave it running only to come back a few hours later and see that it isn’t anymore. I know that there has been an attack on my computer so I’m left wondering if the software 1) is vunerable to attack and being shut down or 2) just crashing. Either way, after it shuts, I’m getting no protection. Save your $7.99 for something else.
If (big IF) there is an update and the problem resolves, I’ll update the review and let you know what happens. No update = nothing has been done.
This App is just ok. It needs some improvements in the next update. The best part is that you can see the connected devices, but there is no option to disconnect them. Please, fix that.
Not Snow Leopard compatible
This app (version 3.0.1) is listed as being compatible with Snow Leopard. It isn’t. As soon as I click on the icon, it crashes. Waste of time along with the hassle of filing a PayPal claim to get my money back.
