Angry [APP] WifiKill - disable internet for network hoggers (Android 4.x)

Needs ROOT




DESCRIPTION
Well, with this app you can disable internet connection for a device on the same network. So if someone (anyone) is abusing the internet wasting precious bandwidth for a Justin Bieber videoclips you could just kill their connection and stay happy with a full bandwidth just for yourself.

After a long long delay, I present to you brand new WiFiKill.

This is an early release so be gentle. New features will come after this code proves to be stable.

DOWNLOAD

You can download WiFiKill using WiFiKill Downloader

!!! PRO version !!! requires you to make a donation through PayPal (using WiFiKill Downloader)

SALE, SALE, SALE - PRICE WILL GO UP AFTER SOME SHORT PERIOD OF TIME

Free version has ads, and is shuts down after 5 minutes. In future version more limitations will follow.




FEATURES
  • grabbing traffic, showing websites visited by grabbed device
  • showing bytes transferred by "grabbed device"
  • showing network names (netbios names) of devices
  • tablet friendly!
  • android 4.x only

CHANGELOG
  • v2.2 - 03-02-2013
    • Improve grab/kill effectiveness
    • Fixed killing problem due to iptables rules
    • Fixed grab all button behavior and status device count
    • Fixed url list scrolling issue
    • Fixed some devices missing upon start
    • Added udp protocol blocking
    • Fixed Force-Close when device name was empty
    • Fixed Service Fail upon start

  • v2.1 - 25-12-2012
    • VERSION CHANGED to 2.1 to end the confusion
    • Enlarge device name input field (thanks m.kucharskov)
    • Add long click on url to open in browser (again m.kucharskov)
    • Add NetBIOS name resolution (network name)
    • Add preference (settings) screen

  • v2.0 - 31-10-2012
    • fixed crappy UI on Samsung devices (yes that switches are normal now)
    • fixed some dependency on play store downloader (which is now available here)

SCREENSHOTS
.










=================== OLD VERSION [DISCONTINUED] ===================
Google pulled it from market, so it's available here:


DONATION VERSION AD-FREE:

OR

Project homepage: http://forum.ponury.net/

Changelog:
v1.7 (05/11/2011) uninstall needed:
  • fixed the counter bug (I hope for the last time)
  • added an option to redirect HTTP traffic to specific IP (caution! this may lead to significant CPU load)
  • now successful kills are tagged by green icon on the left of IP (this is not 100% correct)

v1.6 (03/11/2011):
  • added an option to have sorted list of devices (by IP or by MAC) - see Settings
  • fixed a lag in preference screen
  • Searching is now looking for IP or Name
  • minor changes here and then

v1.5 (22/10/2011):
  • added an option to assign a name to device's MAC (long-click on the IP)
  • added an option to show the notification status bar
  • added option to set the range of IPs to scan, you can also stop the scan by pressing the search progress bar
  • fixed some strange no-subnet-scan issue?
  • fixed a bug that caused the percent to go over 9000!!!
  • new ICON! the old was ugly, this is simple... meh.

v1.4 (19/10/2011):
  • fixed a few Force Closes
  • added check-for-updates feature
  • fixed something more... don't remember what it was now...
  • fixed "Vibrate when new IP is found" bug (vibration never stopped)
  • removed unused permissions (I think)

v1.3:
  • added Menu => Search option for devices without hardware search button (sgs2)
  • touching the "searching" progress will stop searching and reschedule it in 30 seconds (useful with large networks)

v1.2:
  • fixed two FC
  • fixed counter bug (I hope)
  • fixed "ALL" toggle (should work as expected now)

v1.1:
  • added reject methods in settings
  • search button assigned to... searching IP's
  • fixed device count bug
  • fixed FC
  • (maybe) fixed a iptables error (in settings disable iptables)



Thank you and have a good night

Sounds interesting. I'm curious, from a technical side what method does it use to accomplish this, and how long does it keep them off for?

I tried it out. Showed all the computers on my network and enabling it blocked the Internet on my computer. I was still connected to the wifi but the Internet didn't work. My brother was playing a game in the basement and when I enabled his I heard him swearing from down there. Pretty cool app.

That's hilarious -and just a bit mean. Did it go back on once disabled it?

Yeah once you disable it works again. I have no idea how this works but it's awesome.

I am also wondering if you can goto a Starbucks or connect to a schools wifi and block everyone or if public wifis have something that my home wifi doesn't that won't let this work. I wonder if there's anyway to get caught using this.

Could you get caught? Technically, yes. If an IT person was trying to figure out what went wrong, they could figure out what manufacturer made the device (using the MAC address) and then go searching through people's pockets and bags to see what Samsung device is doing it. Will you get caught doing it at a Starbucks? No way.
Also, yes it will work on a public hotspot well.

Freakin awesome app! Ha.

Will this only work for LAN connections? Such as lets say an Xbox connected to the same network but thru wire instead of wireless?

Too bad that I can't install it in my Sgs2, it says isn't compatible!!

EDIT:
My bad, I've set the dpi to 220 and the market doesn't allowed me to download it!
