This feature is only available in the Personal or Family package of Kaspersky Security Cloud.

We have improved the feature and fixed issues with its operation on Android 11-14.x versions, so you can enjoy the Smart Home Monitor feature without limitations.

The Smart Home Monitor feature shows devices that are connected to your home Wi-Fi network. Using this feature, you can prevent unauthorized devices from connecting to your network and check the protection state of your devices connected to the network.

Multiple devices may be connected to your home Wi-Fi network. Someone could capture your password or hack into your Wi-Fi network to obtain free internet or to gain access to your data. Kaspersky app can help you quickly find out about new devices connecting to your home network.

When your device connects to a Wi-Fi network, Kaspersky app asks if you want to view other devices connected to this network. If you agree, the app shows a list of devices connected to this network and displays a notification if a new device connects. This way, you can monitor your home Wi-Fi network and protect all connected devices and data.

Even one unsecured device in the Wi-Fi network may put all other devices at risk. Using Kaspersky app, you can go to My Kaspersky and install Kaspersky applications on all your devices to protect them.

To install Kaspersky app on the other device (if you have purchased a multidevice subscription):

  1. Tap Smart Home Monitor on the main feature screen, then tap the name of the device with which you would like to share your subscription.

    A window with information about this device opens.

  2. In the In your subscription section, tap Kaspersky app.
  3. On the screen that appears tap Send link.

    A system window with link sharing options appears.

  4. Open the link on the device, where you want to install Kaspersky app.

    Now you can download the app and right after that you will be automatically signed in to your My Kaspersky account.

If more than a thousand devices are connected to a Wi-Fi network and the network is monitored by Kaspersky app, the app may work slowly. We do not recommend to monitor public Wi-Fi networks.
