Edward thanks for the reply.

A mobile phone will detect and list all available wifi enabled devices in its vicinity? I was wondering if the wifi router protected by MacAfee would also detect all WIFI products in its area and list them? Your response would indicate not

Hi @Andyjames 

Greetings From McAfee.

Thanks for getting back to us.

We would like to inform you that If you have McAfee installed that picks up the list of devices that is connected to your router and it is completely different from the Mobile WIFI whereas it displays the devices which has WIFI enabled on the same.
