The internet puts the whole world at your fingertips. As a parent, I sometimes wonder if that is really a good thing! That is why I am happy to partner with Speedtechs today. The founders of this Melbourne, Australia based company are Jonathan Shutt and Calum Anderstrem. Speedtechs develops innovative products that show users what’s happening on their Internet connection as easily, intuitively and cheaply as possible. Mi-inta is their newest product and it makes it so that parents everywhere can illuminate the online activity in their homes. It is the perfect solution for how to monitor internet activity on your router as well as monitor what devices are connected to your WiFi.
How To Spy On Devices Connected To My WiFi?
Ok, spying or secretly collecting information sounds a little extreme. However, mi-inta is Speedtechs’ solution that solves how to see internet activity for all devices on the WiFi. In general, most people have no idea how to see what’s happening on their Internet connections. While solutions do exist, they have been complex and for the technically oriented. mi-inta solves this problem for those who care about online activity in the home or office. It helps to identify unusual, unwanted, unauthorized or suspicious usage. It also comes in handy to determine the cause of over utilization that impacts performance and maxes out the connection.
How Does mi-inta work?
Here is the best part: mi-inta is so easy to use! You just plug it into the electricity outlet and into your router and mi-inta does the rest. Now you can spy through wifi router! Just being silly but for real, you just download the free mi-inta app and it allows you to monitor internet activity on your router. That means you will be able to see what devices are connected to your Wifi, bandwidth used, timestamps, and visited website URLs. No more mysteries.
And since the app is free, there is only the one-time fee to buy the mi-inta box itself and it very reasonably priced. mi-inta operates entirely stand-alone and does not reference servers or other cloud resources. This ensures optimum performance (no delays waiting for server replies). It also ensures complete security and privacy of the user’s data – no user data is sent to the cloud or accessible from outside the local network.
When you want to see details of your most recent home internet activity, mi-inta can show you the last one minute of activity, the last 6 minutes or the last hour. If you prefer to review activity across the whole day, mi-inta also totals it up across four periods of 6 hours. mi-inta makes it possible to pick out the ‘who, what and when’ with ease.
How Is Seeing What Websites Have Been Visited On My WiFi Helpful?
mi-inta gives you the ability to monitor internet activity on your home network or at your small business. Being able to monitor internet activity on your WiFi is potentially helpful to parents of teens who favor monitoring over parental control, in an effort to allow exploration while providing an appropriate level of parental oversight. It is potentially helpful to business owners who need to be able to identify all devices on the network and ensure traffic is business related.
mi-inta illuminates online activity as easy as turning on a flashlight revealing WiFi devices and websites visited in real time and at a glance. See what kids are up to on their devices as well as how long and when they are using the internet. mi-inta can also allow you to see if something else (a gaming device) or someone else (a neighbor) is hogging your internet.
With mi-inta you can see:
- The URLs of websites visited
- The specific web pages
- The duration of time you spent on each website
- The exact time devices connected to the Wi-Fi
- The duration of time each device spent online
mi-inta also prevents tricks that youngsters may use to by-pass browser checks. For example they may thing that they have covered their tracks with Incognito mode. Nope. mi-inta can still log that information so incognito mode does not hide internet activities.
