Control the traffic on devices connected to a WiFi
If you need to audit the traffic sent over a WiFi network, DroidSheep is a tool that you can use for such purpose. This app can analyze all the traffic by reading its data and even capturing passwords for online services such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, amongst others.
Intercept the data packets that are sent and received
The application can identify each one of the elements of the users connected to a WiFi network reading all the packets sent or received on the device, whether a computer or a smartphone. It's obviously an app that has been developed for legitimate purposes. In other words, don't try to use it to steal passwords or snoop on what other users are doing which would mean violating their privacy.

- Minimum operating system requirements: Android 1.6.
- The installation of the app by means of the APK file requires the activation of the "Unknown sources" option within Settings>Applications.
