MESSAGES

 

WifiWall supports two types of messages:

 

1  Caution

2  Alert

 

CAUTION

 

Caution message will be displayed when WifiWall identifies a monitoring activity on your protected devices.  This may be a legitimate action done by WiFi network management tools in a controlled area (Enterprise Wifi network)  or a preparation to attack your device.

 

We do not recommend any specific action in such a case. Unless it happens very frequent (few times in a minute)  and you are in a public WiFi. In this case, stop using the WiFi for 10-15 minutes. You may try again later, it this repeat, avoid using this public WiFi network for the rest of the day.

ALERT

 

Alert message in a public Wifi network is a strong indication of an attempt to attack your device. This may be an attempt to divert your connection, hijack your connection etc.  WifiWall will send Wifi (802.11 management) frames to your device advising it to disconnect, however, we strongly recommend you to avoid using this public WiFi network for the next 15 mins. Later you may reconnect, but if this happens again, avoid this WiFi network for the entire day.

 

If Sound is on: WifiWall will sound alert tone (may be mute, see Setup Screen).
