Wi-Fi Privacy Police prevents your smartphone or tablet from leaking privacy sensitive information via Wi-Fi networks. It does this in two ways:

* It prevents your smartphone from sending out the names of Wi-Fi networks it wants to connect to over the air. This makes sure that other people in your surroundings can not see the networks you've connecte to, and the places you've visited.

* If your smartphone encounters an unknown access point with a known name (for example, a malicious access point pretending to be your home network), it asks whether you trust this access point before connecting. This makes sure that other people are not able to steal your data.

Wi-Fi Privacy Police does not have any negative impact on your battery. In fact, you may see your battery life increase by using this app.

Wi-Fi Privacy Police is an app developed at the Expertise Center for Digital Media, a research institute of UHasselt. It is open source, with its source code being publicly available at https://github.com/BramBonne/privacypolice .

A lot of effort went into making this app work flawlessly. If you, however, run into any problems when using this app, nor the app developers, nor the UHasselt take responsibility. You are encouraged to report any issues at uhasselt.edm.developer@gmail.com or via GitHub at https://github.com/BramBonne/privacypolice/issues/new ; we will try to fix them as soon as possible.

PrivacyPolice now requires the location permission to run. This is because Android 6.0 does not allow access to the list of Wi-Fi networks without this location. PrivacyPolice will *never* collect your information. Please consult the source code at https://github.com/BramBonne/privacypolice if you have any doubts.

Note to those using CyanogenMod: make sure that Privacy Guard is not blocking access to Wi-Fi Privacy Police, as it will then not be able to see the available networks. This will cause Wi-Fi Privacy Police to disable access to all of them.

Reviews From google play store

This app doesn't have internet permission so you can trust it and can't spy on you or send your location to anywhere but please check full permissions in every update :)


Not sure how I feel about the location permission though.


Solve my ghost push problem no more pop-up ads thanks a lot


Killing my battery for no known reason.


It would be nice if I could back up all of the data on my old phone and move it to the new one


Needs an update for Android O as it causes problems with all connections and when uninstalled everything works fine.


Very Useful App To Increase WiFi Access-Point Security, By Allowing Only Your Own Approved WiFi-AP Be Allowed For Access WiFi By Your Phone :)


Piece of dirt.. Shut down my wifi.. And wouldn't allow me to open it!.. Junk pile for you buddy!


Installed but Still seeing Ads popping up *


App does protects you from getting suckered in ways you didn't know you were gettin got.
