One of the most useful that we can find on Android is this application that allows to know if there is any foreign element connected to the home wireless network. Like the previous one, it offers the possibility of a dark mode and its operation is very simple: it scans all the devices connected to the home Wi-Fi network.



In many cases, the name it offers is that of the modem that incorporates the device in question, so we may not initially identify it. To improve the data you offer, we can activate the function of "Recognize the manufacturer of the device" or if it still does not register, add it by hand verifying the Mac of each one or the IP assigned to it.
