Finding the person is nearly impossible, but you can change your WiFi password and install a WiFi management program like Who Is on My Wi-Fi and block access for those who are using it by scanning the network, checking the "Block" checkbox next to the unwanted connection, and clicking "Save changes". A sniffer program like WireShark can also help you identify passing traffic and find out what Web sites have been visited or what strings have been sent by a specific computer or device over one of the Internet protocols. However, sniffer programs are quite advanced in their usage and require good preparation to interpret traffic correctly and exclude any VPN services.

Public WiFi networks solve this problem in some countries by requiring any person to use his or her smartphone number, passport data, or a social network account before he or she can access public WiFi. This way, it is much easier for the police to track the person using WiFi.
