Track devices not connected to my network


Recommended Posts

Im looking to track devices that come within range of my wifi adapter

I know devices that are not connected to a network are constantly scanning for a network to connect to and give away information such as a mac address

i just need a way to capture and log the data that is given away

What tools do you posses? 

What you are talking about is simply capturing the SSID probe and the mac address which are easily done in Kali with Airodump-ng . I have not used that in a while though

You could use FING from the app store, free and so easy my next door neighbors cousin Lucinda could use it and she lives in a cabin  .. well the FBI is looking for her 🙂

My preferred way is with the Pineapple nano because it can spoof their SSID and when they are in range they will connect because you don't just have their 1 SSID you have them all so that phone is gonna go bonkers when it see's all of it's favorite networks 🙂 You can also use the filter to allow ONLY that person. And you can set notifications.. would be cool to have it pop a message up about it. Add it Darren 🙂 

I hope this is your phone you are tracking because you lost it or someone stole it, because if you are, you sir are one clever joker to reverse a pineapple nano in to a SSID tracking device. that is genius 🙂
