How can I see what someone is doing when connected to my WiFi?
1. Spy With Open DNS
If you want to keep an eye on the devices connected to your home Wi-Fi network, OpenDNS can be a great tool.
By signing up for a free account, you can use their DNS servers to filter web content and view detailed activity logs of all the devices that connect to your network.
While this won’t give you information on what specific sites were visited, it can be a helpful way to monitor your home network activity and spot any suspicious behavior.
To get started, head over to OpenDNS.com and sign up for a free account. Once you’ve done that, log into your router’s control panel and find the section for DNS settings.
Enter the OpenDNS server addresses (22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199) into the DNS fields, then save your changes and restart your router.
Now, all the devices on your network will use OpenDNS for web filtering and activity logging. To view the logs, simply log into your account on the OpenDNS website and click the “Logs” tab.
Here, you’ll see a list of all the devices that have connected to your network, along with the time and date of each connection.
If you’re like me, you’ve got a few devices connected to your home wifi network. But what if you want to know what those devices are doing on your network? How can you spy on them?
-Install a network monitoring tool like Wireshark on your computer. This will allow you to see all of the data that’s being sent and received on your network.
-Configure your router to use a separate SSID (wireless network name) for each device that you want to spy on. This way, you can easily identify which traffic is coming from which device.
-Use Wireshark to filter the traffic by the SSID of the device you want to spy on. This will give you a clear view of all of the traffic that’s being sent and received by that device.
Now you can see everything that your devices are doing on your network! So go ahead and start spying on them today.

3. zAnti Android App
This app allows you to see all of the devices that are connected to your wifi, as well as the activity that they’re doing on it.
You can also use this app to block certain devices from accessing your wifi or to set up a password for your wifi so that only certain people can access it.
To use this app, simply download it and then open it up. Once you’re in the app, you’ll need to grant it permission to access your wifi network.
After that, you should be able to see all of the devices that are connected to your wifi, as well as the activity that they’re doing on it.

How do I find hidden devices on my WiFi?
If you’re concerned that someone might be using your wifi connection without your permission, there are a few things you can do to check. First, open your router’s web interface.
Steps to log into your router settings
- Go to http://192.168.1.1/
- Login in with the router login details ( if you haven’t changed your default login details then it should be username: admin and Password: admin)
Now look for a list of devices connected to your network. This will usually be located in the “status” or “attached devices” section.
If you don’t see a list of devices, try looking for a button that says “show all devices”, wireless clients, or something similar.
Once you have the list of devices, take a look and see if anything looks out of place.
Do you recognize all of the devices? If not, there’s a chance that someone is using your wifi without your permission.
How do I remove an unknown device from my Wi-Fi?
The simple and best way to Kick Someone Off Your WiFi is to change your WIFI password ASAP.
You can change your wifi password with the help of your router web interface
- Go to router advanced settings
- Under system tools, you can find an account management option to change your current password
Note: every router interface is different so yours might be different from what is shown in the above image
If you’re still having trouble, you can always factory reset your router. This will remove all devices from your network and give you a fresh start. Just be sure to back up any important settings before you do this.
How to control devices connected to your WiFi
If you want to take things a step further, you can use a tool like Wireshark to monitor traffic on your network.
This will let you see all of the data being sent and received by each device on your network. If you see something suspicious, you can then take action accordingly.
You can do a few other things to secure your wifi connection and prevent unauthorized use.
- For example, you can enable encryption on your router. This will make it much harder for someone to intercept and read the data sent over your network.
- You should also consider changing your wifi password on a regular basis, just to be safe.
