I was wondering. If the test person sees that he's connected to his home network while he's not near his home he could (should) be wondering what is going on.
Is there a way to use the probe requests, let the device think ok this is my trusted network and let the device show a different AP name.
In McDonalds a smartphone would send out a probe request: Hello home network are you around? The pineapple would answer: sure, here I am, connect to me. The user would see his home network connected.
What if the pineapple could say: "sure, here I am and btw my name is now 'wifi McDonalds'".
Would that be possible?
