We’re very happy to announce that RouterCheck, the application that helps consumers assess their home network’s security, is now open to the public. No longer will you need an invitation to download and run RouterCheck, everyone is now invited.
RouterCheck represents a new security solution to a growing problem. Many people are now concerned with their home network’s security after it was determined that the disruption of the PSN and XBox Live networks over Christmas was done simply through a network of hacked home routers – most of which still had their default passwords protecting them. RouterCheck helps consumers keep their home routers and networks safe from many common problems.
To run RouterCheck, you need an Android-capable device and access to the network that you want to test. Instructions for installing and running RouterCheck can be found after registering for the Beta at Register for the Beta.
