Questions and Answers

Which free sniffer tool is the best one?

I just read about the sniffer tools that I can put on the home computer and see her texts if she's connected to the WiFi??

First of all, it is easier to ask her to show the phone, as it is required to obtain the consent of a person to sniff his or her traffic. You can get a comprehensive tool, Wireshark, for your computer to analyze incoming and outgoing traffic. It is useful in capturing non-encrypted traffic (that excludes most instant messengers from sniffing: iMessages, WhatsApp, Viber, Telegram, Signal, Line, CyberDust, Kik, Facebook, Google, Snapchat, Twitter, Skype, etc.). It cannot capture SMS, MMS, or normal calls as they do not use the Internet. You can capture web sites visited and some insecure messages sent over the network.

You can also install Firesheep, a Firefox extension that intercepts connections. Open its panel and click "Start Capturing" to analyze sessions. You can click the person to use his or her session with his or her consent.

If using a sniffer on WiFi, does it store messages?

Does it read stuff and store it in case it is deleted? Or does it only show what is being sent and currently stored on phone?
