About the Smart Home Monitor component
October 3, 2023
Available only in Kaspersky Plus and Kaspersky Premium.
Hackers could potentially capture your password or hack into your home network to take advantage of your Internet or steal your data. Kaspersky application protects your wireline Ethernet networks and Wi-Fi networks against unauthorized connections.
As soon as you confirm that your home network is detected correctly, we begin monitoring devices connected to that network and some vulnerabilities such as a weak Wi-Fi password or router encryption. If we detect vulnerabilities or a new device on the network that you have not previously identified as a known device, we will warn you about it and suggest recommendations to let you take steps to protect your home network and devices that use it.
Notifications about home network vulnerabilities are only available in Kaspersky Premium. Notifications about new devices connecting to your home network are available in Kaspersky Plus and Kaspersky Premium.
When the device connects to your network, Kaspersky application prompts you to confirm if the network is your home network. If you confirm that it is your home network, the application asks if you want to view devices connected to the network:
- If you agree, Kaspersky application shows a list of devices connected to this network and notifies you if a new device has connected to it.
- If you refuse, Kaspersky application does not notify you when a connection to this network is established again, and does not display the list of devices that are connected.
You can disable Smart Home Monitor. When you disable the component, Kaspersky application stops notifying you about connections to your network.
