Home WiFi Alert Network Scanner Exceeds 100,000 Active Users
Fort Meade, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/25/2016 -- Network scanner app Home WiFi Alert is introducing updates to its popular smartphone application.
The popular mobile app, which has quickly surpassed 100,000 active users, recently added background scanning, a major new feature that allows users to continue monitoring a home network while the app is closed. If a new device comes onto the network, the app will log the information and send a notification to the homeowner.
In addition to the new background-scanning feature, Home WiFi Alert now supports translations in two more languages: Russian and Hindi. Two additional languages are being translated and will be released with the next update. The development team at Home WiFi Alert also made minor tweaks to fix reported issues, ensuring that the app runs smoothly.
"This is a big update that our users are going to find extremely helpful," said Erich Krauz, developer of Home WiFi Alert. "Thanks to the wonderful feedback from our growing base of users, we are able to make this app the best WiFi analyzer at the Google Play Store, helping more people protect their home WiFi networks from thieves."
The Home WiFi Alert app is available for download from the Google Play Store at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=info.lamatricexiste.networksearch&hl=en. An ad-free Home Wifi Alert Pro version can be downloaded at
Home WiFi Alert will soon be available for iOS devices. The new version is slated for launch via the Apple store this February.
