Privacy, Security, Encryption FaceNiff is an Android app that allows you to sniff and intercept web session profiles over the Wi-Fi that your mobile is connected to. It is possible to hijack sessions only when Wi-Fi is not using EAP, but it should work over any private networks (Open/WEP/WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK). It's kind of like Firesheep for Android and it works on WPA2.

So this is like tcpdump or Wireshark for Android? Neat.

I'll take this opportunity to remind everyone to use encryption whenever possible, and if you're really paranoid, use a VPN when using someone else's network.
