    Hmm seems like it is like WOT? A website rater? I use Avast Online Security from the chromed weebstore and usually these apps get the job done.

    No, it's not.

    It scans your network and device to check for vulnerabilities that will expose you on the Shodan, IoT.

    Didn't you read the information posted above? :confused:

    Thank you @Spawn it says I am not on Shodan

    It would be interesting to perform a deep scan in search of vulnerabilities , but it said they would be indexed on Shodan

    Just to be sure :Smartphone/ tablets cams are not indexed right ?

    So if I perform the test from a PC / smartphone/ tablet , It can check IoT in my home ?
