    Default Can a hacker use a packet sniffer on Android?

    Default Re: Can a hacker use a packet sniffer on Android?

    Yep!

    I found a site with loads listed but cannot post the link as I am new!

    It is possible to sniff cell traffic (3G/4G) but probably beyond the scope of most 'hackers'

    As Android is similar to Linux it is perfect for hacking and password sniffing on WiFi networks, be careful when using free or public WiFi!
