How Who’s On My Wifi helps block unknown devices on a network.

Mac Filter Blocking – Any device that is detected by a Who’s On My WiFi detection agent will show the Mac Address.  This Mac Address can be added to the Wireless Mac Filter of your current router for a consistent, stable blocking effect.  Look into the details of your current wireless router to see how to do this.
