    Hello there!

    So, I have been feeling like someone is getting in my wi-fi because of the high usage of my internet data. I can’t seem to find anyone using my internet by the time I get here. So I am wondering if there is a program I can use to monitor the data usage of every device that get’s connected. I made my router do this, but it isn’t as complete as I would like it to be. Like it would just tell me a whole number but not from what mac address was used.

    Let me know if there is something out there.

    Thanks,
    Rojo

    Hey Rojo,

    Have you tried further locking down your WiFi with the extra security setting that only accepts computers with the MAC addresses that you have specified? I forgo what this feature is called, “MAC Addressing” maybe?

    About the data monitor, what operating systems are you using on your computer? Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 have built in Internet data usage monitors. I am looking at mine on Windows 10 right now which even breaks down the exact data usage individual apps use.

    For Android and iOS, aren’t there various data meta apps?

    Hey Joey!
    It is call access list and i did set it up yesterday. But i don’t like that option in case a guess is at home and i am not there lol.
    I have windows 10. But what i want is to monitor the router so it tells me which mac address is using how much of data.
