Try Arcai Netcut. Don't install one from play store. It's available on https://arcai.com/netcut-for-android/ working on Android 10, moto g power.
Hi, thanks for the tip. Not sure though, this is for when somebody connected to your hotspot or just same wifi..? I don't understand how this could cut connection on same wifi just with button? Anyway, it didn't work, i just tried. Porbably missing something.

EDIT: In fact does work (sometimes).. What's the magic?! Though it can't grab traffic and show visited website, is there another working app/module for this?

    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.


    You can download WiFiKill using WiFiKill Downloader

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

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



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

    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)

    • 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

    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?

    Sent from my SPH-D710 using XDA App

    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.
    So... a small update. I am probably going to work on a new version with my friend after new year. How soon or if it will be available is still not known. We're not even sure we want to release it so basically I just wanted to say that yes I hear you, no I don't know how it will end.
    There might be other problems... We're starting work on totally new release :) so don't want to waste time on this old code.
    PRO version now works kind-of with android 5.0
