Clients React to the WiFi Pineapple

Recommended Posts

I run into quite a few WiFi clients throughout the week and each one reacts differently to the Pineapple's strategies of ensnaring clients. I've started to record these differences by characterizing the mobile device and the options needed for the Pineapple to be successful. The fruition of those efforts can be found here:

This article explains my process and results. However, if you just want to see the results, they are here:

This document will continually be updated with mobile devices, so check back occasionally to get updates. My most recent update to the document, iPhone 6s, didn't make the article.

Thanks. I've updated the spreadsheet with a new device, an Asus Zenphone. I'll be adding new devices as they come across my path and I'll try to make sure to post a list on this thread on a monthly or bi-weekly basis.

The following models have been added to the list.

  • Apple iPod 4th Generation
  • LG G4
  • Samsung Galaxy S7

In addition, I've added the OUI for each device. I'm not giving the full address for reasons of privacy. I'm including the OUI because sometimes you might want to know what device you're chasing. The OUI will certainly tell you the manufacturer, but specific matching OUIs can let you know the model as well. For instance, an OUI may tell you that a device is an Apple from a simple Internet search, but I've been able to look back over my own records to tell that a specific OUI belongs not only to Apple but that it belongs to iWatches. Once again, here's the link:

Three more models to update the list:

  • LG G Watch R
  • Apple iPhone 5s
  • Apple iWatch

The LG G Watch R has a fairly interesting past. When initial consumers bought the product, it didn't have WiFi. An update enabled the capability later. Some people are still unaware of the capability. The device I came across had never been connected to an access point before, so the Pineapple had nothing to entice it with. 

The iWatch was interesting because it deauthenticated from the Pineapple after being connected for about 30 seconds. By deauthenticated I mean it actually sent a deauthentication packet to the Pineapple. I've seen this on a number of iOS 10 devices. It appears that in order to keep it connected, you must make sure the Pineapple is providing an Internet connection. After the device can reach out over the Internet, it has no problem remaining connected.

  • 1 month later...

It's been a slow month for devices but here is the latest update:

  • Nook Color (BNRV200)
  • Apple iPhone 5s (ME305LL/A)

The Nook's behavior was unexpected. After associating with the Pineapple, it sent a deauthentication packet to kick itself off the Pineapple after not finding a way to reach a particular Barnes & Noble website. It couldn't find the website because I normally use the Pineapple in a manner that doesn't not let the client have an outside connection.

You can find the updated spreadsheet here:
