Wifikill is a networking app for android which can be used to disable internet access of users which are connected to the same network as yours. This means anyone who has wifi kill app can kick your device off the Wi-Fi network and you will not be able to access the Internet. The purpose of Netcut(Wifikill for PC) software is same, the only difference is netcut is for windows PC while wifi kill is for android.
You can face this problem mainly when you are using public Wi-Fi network.
Someone can disable your internet access in order to get the maximum bandwidth for himself. But do not worry, if there is netcut , there is an anti netcut too. The anti netcut software provides protection against wifikill too.
How to Prevent Wifikill attacks from NetCut
- First download the Netcut software from the link provided below and install it. If Netcut is already installed on your system you can directly skip to the second step.
- Open the netcut window. In order to protect your system against the ARP spoofing attack
(netcut attack), you just need to check the box ‘Protect my computer’ on the top left corner.
- When the attacker tries to disable to your internet access using Netcut or wifikill(from an android device), and if you have running the Netcut software in the background (with ‘Protect my computer’ box checked), it will have no effect on your internet connection.
If you’re not comfortable in having an attack program such as NetCut installed and running on your computer due to legal concerns, the author of NetCut also created a protection program called NetCut Defender. Basically, it does the same thing as the “Protect My Computer” option found in NetCut except without the ability to cut off a person’s connection.
WiFi Kill Protector for Android
This app is for those, who are tired of being kicked from the network by WifiKill. And for those, who are a little bit paranoid, because they know it’s quite easy to read the Wi-Fi traffic with tools like DroidSheep, ettercap, FaceNiff, Cain & Abel and others. Such programs use the same technique to prevent you from accessing the network or to sniff your data. You can defend yourself with a single app.
How does it work?
Wifi Protector is continuously monitoring network related parameters. When abnormal behaviour is detected, an alert is triggered. The type of alert can be configured. Detection, basic protection and alert work on all phones. On rooted phones, it is also possible to reconfigure the phone to make it immune against the attack.
