Want to hack into most secured servers like FBI with your Smartphone? Solve crimes and impress others with your whacky hacking skills? Or hack ATM’s to get rich? Well, you can’t. There are no such apps for that. Also, apps that can hack into your ex’s Facebook account doesn’t exist. Sorry to disappoint you but if it were that easy, everyone would be doing it.
So, what’s the point of this article then? This article is for those who know a thing or two about hacking. We’re talking about individuals who have knowledge in software and programming languages. Specifically, we’re pertaining to white hat hacking or ethical hacking.
5 Useful Android Apps for Ethical Hacking
This article will not be your traditional list article. We won’t be listing any apps with features and whatnot. We will, however, list apps that will help you in white hat hacking.
This app is probably the most neglected one on the list because of its off looking interface. Although, if you need work done, this app can really help you with that. If you are a penetration tester or an IT administrator, this app will provide invaluable tools to you.
This won’t be the best hacking app for Android though because it can only scan for exploits. If you have a keen eye for exploits, you may be able to do some hacking, but it sure won’t be from your smartphone. You will need a Linux or Windows-based personal computer for you to do that.
2. WiFinspect [Root]
WiFinspect is an app that’s designed for network monitoring purposes. With this app, you can gather information using its built-in functionality such as Network Info, UPnP Devices Scanner, Host Discovery, Network Sniffler, and Pcap Analyzer. However, this app requires a rooted smartphone for some of its features to work.
3. Fing – Network Tools
Fing is one of the best network tools for Android available to date. It can discover all the connected devices to your WiFi network without any restriction. The app can also show the MAC address and details of each connected device. You can use this app to prevent devices from accessing your network.
There are a ton of more features in this app which can really help an IT administrator or security personnel. If you need a network app on Android, we highly recommend trying Fing.
4. Network Manager – Network Tools & Utilities
If you want an app that’s similar to Fing but offers more comprehensive utilities and tools then this app might be the right one for you. With this app, you use Ping, Traceroute, Nmap, Port Scanner, WiFi Analyzer, Telnet, SSH, Whols, DNS Lookup, and more!
Attested by various IT administrator, this app will surely help you if you want your work done with perfection.
5. LopDog: Anti-Hacking Guard
Last but not least on our list is the LopDog app. A kind of app that secures all your online accounts and immediately informs you of any malicious activity within your accounts. It might not be an app for white hat hacking but one of its aims is to prevent any hacker from stealing your identity.
One of the main features of this app is that it constantly scans your online accounts and mobile device. Once it detects anything unusual or malicious activity, you will be alerted immediately. So you can take appropriate actions instantly and prevent hackers from stealing your personal information.
As we mentioned before, we do not encourage any form of selfish hacking. A kind of hacking that aims to do unlawful things for personal gain. We do, however, encourage people to learn about ethical hacking. A kind of hacking that aims to do good things such as strengthening network security.
If you want to learn about Ethical Hacking, you can do so by either purchasing a book from Amazon called “ETHICAL HACKING: A Comprehensive Beginner’s Guide to Learn and Master Ethical Hacking” or by installing an app called “SpyFox – Ethical Hacking Complete Guide.”
Ultimately, there are no best hacking apps for Android. If you’re here looking for a way to hack accounts or machines, then this is not the right place for that. You might find luck searching through Reddit or other forums. However, we don’t encourage hacking if it’s for selfish reasons.
These days, hacking has become quite difficult. If you want to be good at it, you have to dedicate your time to it. Just to be clear, a DDOS attack is not hacking. It is an event where multiple systems flood the bandwidth of a targeted system.
