Consider adding a Home Network Scanner
« on: October 25, 2021, 12:41:23 AM »
While this is a fine product it should have a home network scanner. The lack of one can be a big gap in security.
Just yesterday I found that a neighbor of mine had figured out how to login into my home Wifi and I had no idea they were using it until I turned on my second computer which still has Bitdefender as I'm waiting for the subscription to run out notified me about a new unauthorized device connecting to my network but the damage had already been done.

If Avast One had a home network scanner I could've stopped my neighbor immediately. While this is the first time I've ever had this happen it has me leery that it could happen again.
