Intercepter-NG – Packet Sniffer Android App
Intercepter-NG is probably the best Wifi Packet Sniffer Android App around and it’s available from the Play Store too!
Intercepter-NG is a very powerful Android packet sniffing App which can sniff both wired and wireless traffic, steal cookies, view usernames/passwords, URL of sites visited and much, much more! This post will outline some of the features and act as a basic Intercepter-ng tutorial.
It also has a feature similar to Wireshark where you can collect packets sent over the network for analysis later.
When you are connected to a WiFi network you scan the entire network and it will show you all the users on that network, both wired and WiFi.
- The first screen will let you scan for all clients on the network, both wired and wireless and let you select the users whose traffic you want to sniff. The first result is usually the WiFi router, the results below that are connected users (known as targets or victims) on the network. In the picture there is only one user on the network, a computer with the name ‘ANA’
- Then head over to the settings tab which is the cog symbol. There are a number of options here but you can just use the settings shown in the picture to get started. You may want to save the sniffed traffic to your SD card instead of the phone’s internal memory.
- Then click on the black and yellow radiation symbol and hit the play button to start arp poisoning and capturing data sent over the network. You will see some information here but not everything.
- Cookies tab. This feature is really interesting as you can see which websites have been visited. If you click on one you can actually view and navigate the webpage the user is viewing, sometimes inside their accounts.
