    Kids are the "best" hackers :)

    Did he change the MAC address?   When you receive the alarm, check and see what's the MAC address he changes to. 

    We are likely to build lockdown mode, which requires new devices to be approved when attaching to the network.  This may help in this case.   Well ... until he discovers VPN ... and we have a VPN detector coming as well ...

    Lol, yes that is what he's been doing with his iPhone for a while, he doesn't have an active cell plan and has to use Wifi.  Thanks for confirming the Hostname isn't currently being used for blocking.  Regarding VPN, looks like he's already discovered NordVPN and has it installed on his PC.  Will Firewalla alert me to him making a connection from his PC?  He doesn't have a way to pay for the service, so it may just be a free trial. 

    Glad to hear your working on some additional useful/helpful features.  Keep up the good work and Thanks!

    I know the code for VPN alert is there, it may not be perfect, hopefully, we can release it to beta soon.
