All public wireless networks are not secure – both free and paid. This includes WiFi connections at coffee shops, libraries, airports, hotels and parks. WiFi Dashboard provides the tools to better understand your WiFi connection and security status, as well as the risks associated with public WiFi. WiFi Dashboard easily illustrates your level of security with color coded live tiles: red indicates insecure; blue indicates WPA, WPA2, hardwired, or dial-up; green indicates VPN encryption; and black indicates no Internet connection. Securing your WiFi connection is an important element of securing your personal data. Indeed, as the Wi-Fi Alliance points out (http://www.wi-fi.org/discover-wi-fi/security), VPNs "can help reduce the risk of compromised privacy and security for Internet traffic." According to Cisco Systems, 88% of all U.S. data traffic (http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2014/04/30/cable-wifi/8525347/) on mobile and portable devices will travel over WiFi by 2018. This means more and more personal data is being carried by these networks and makes your WiFi security paramount.

To all those who should know better: 127.0.0.1 is the loopback Internet protocol (IP) address also referred to as the localhost. The address is used to establish an IP connection to the same machine or computer being used by the end-user. The same convention is defined for computers that support IPv6 addressing using the connotation of ::1.Aug 11, 2015More
It doesn't display the correct IP address, just looks like a generic address of 127.0.0.1. Definitely not my address. Doesn't really show anything useful or really do anything.More
So easy to use and so important to have
What a simple way to know whether your connection is safe. I am always on public wifi and never know for sure if I am on a secure connection. The WiFi Dashboard app is a great way to stay informed so I can be sure that I am working or surfing online safely.More
Incorrect IP detected
Did not detect what my IP was. Showed 127.0.0.1 as my IP address, can not trust a program that can not grab the proper IP.More
This should be a standard app on all Windows devices.More
