Joining a wireless network is like an unlimited pass to snoop around for devices that are connected, often uncovering vulnerabilities the owners may not be aware of. On this episode of Cyber Weapons Lab, we’ll show you how to use a smartphone to map a wireless network and even connect to devices like a Raspberry Pi.

    I don't want to scan on my phone I want to be able to change the MAC address somehow. I don't know how to do this on an Android phone.

  2. Honestly that was kinda lame. Also very lame for iPhone users.

  3. The hound says:

    This is one of my favorite apps for Android. very useful. 100% recommend

    @Kody, I bet your loving this app, Network Fingerprinting on a mobile device .. I use Fing everyday I first heard of it at Hak5 a while back its the easiest way to find out what and who is on a network with a mobile device. My Pi's have little raspberries next to them ! Plus they give you a huge selection to customize the Icon of a device so there is no confusion with generic devices(iOS). The only thing that sucks is if the device IP changes, and another device takes that IP it takes its icon and name which is incorrect. It would be cool if you could tag a target and it would stick with them because open networks are not using static IP's. Thats where the MAC becomes a big deal. Its funny I use the same setup , on my iPad Mini with Shelly & Fing. I bought one of those keyboards that hooks on to the iPad mini and it has really became useful again even with VNC it looks just like a GPD pocket now. Some pointer integration would be nice though. Being able to scan the services running on the client is such a clutch way to see open ports and keep an eye on your own servers at home. All in a free version! I am not sure what the PAID version offers, they keep advertising a FING BOX check these dudes out they're the creators …. Providing you already have access to the network this tool in a word, invaluable . OR wait several minutes for ' nmap -T5 -O' terminal fing lol. I would like to see a video on the implementation and functionality of rootkits , do you have to be a guru to pull this off with todays anti-virus software ?

    Network Analyzer Pro is better.

  7. Can you make a video on how to get started with hacking on maybe raspberry pi? and what gear you would need?

  8. Luca says:

    Pls more Android hacking like this

  9. Luca says:

    Pls make a video how to change Sonos music in network! It would be so much of fun

  10. Luca says:

    I had fing before but never know how much I could do with it

  11. Can you create a tutorials with Kali Linux Net Hunter (smaftphone official hacking Linux gpu)? 😉

  12. there is another wireless scan program you can install manually, it's called Zanti, some features requires root but you can only use a few tools

  13. Alf Atlant says:


  14. Very good, kody you rule

  16. HaxLive says:

    I’m confused I go to the port 80 http on my router but nothing loads

  17. Louie M says:

    I been using this app for the last 2 years. it's awesome how it works. I use it at home and at work to see what device are connected. I'm always making sure no strange devices are connected. Keep up the great videos.

  18. vanhetgoor says:

    What is the use of using a program to scan wireless networks that does not give you all the information? Just leave it!

  19. RenTec says:

    What sort of information is provided when scanning a network and how would I prevent identifying information from being leaked? I understand using proxy chains, VPNs and Tor but that's usually for use when connecting to the web right? What about sitting offline somewhere sniffing traffic or nmapping a network? Should I use MAC randomizes, spoof hardware IDs etc?

  20. Fing means fart in my language, i always laugh a little when i use it. Nice vid

  21. Great work mate…
    Can u gimme a Lil brief on how to block devices which is connected to same network like Wi-Fi

  22. Oftfilms says:

    Why in Windows 10 shows UPnP Name PC Name + E-mail? How i do can disable this on Windows 10?

  23. Chad V says:

    What was the Android tool that you used to bring up a shell? I tried looking on the play store and no luck…

  24. Sarmad Ahsan says:

    if we have access a router admin page working somewhere in the word. What type of attack we can launch on it????
    I have a presentation on IOT Security… Any suggestion???? plz

  26. Memo Puertas says:

    I have I related question: Fing does not allow to scan a network if it does not detect an Internet connection.. There is some way to circumvent this issue?

  27. what is generic? i cant get rid of it

  28. SireSquish says:

    I loaded Fing and xprivacy queried a few things:
    Pressure sensor
    Email address
    Call information

    Quite a few there that I can't see a sensible purpose for.

  29. MIlo Smith says:

    My absolute favorite tool.

  30. ronnc123 says:

    this would be ok if it didnt want control of my phone through permissions

  31. xypN says:

    How can I unblock?

  32. Nobody Knows says:

    Hmm, I believe I recommended Fing in one if your other videos in the comments, maybe that's how I'm here now?

  33. Max Lindholm says:

    Sooo we just gonna ignore him scrolling past “FBI surveillance” in his list of scanned networks?
