Bitdefender Home Scanner is a new free program that will allow you to scan your network at home, or in the office, and identify potential security issues. Although some of the results may sound a bit techy it may well provide fixes and actions for issues that you are able to implement to make your devices more secure and less prone to hacking.
The application can be downloaded from https://www.bitdefender.com/solutions/home-scanner.html

You will be prompted to confirm your network – click Yes
Your entire network will now be scanned and a report produced on the status of the devices connected to your home/office network.
