requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

    No adds, love it, well made, just needs a feature to click individual detectected networks as there on top of each other, maybe a list of all detected networks. And a list for bluetooth devices on map. But still my 2nd fav network app

  2. Joseph White-avatar

    Works.. But issue with like all things, updates from before seem to be being unupdated.ping start stop button was working now is not once agian. Been seeing that with yet agian all apps that i have downloaded.

  3. Ata Amrullah-avatar

    The map, gps, and position is real bad... Hope u fix it.

  4. Natalie Allred-avatar

    I had 10 people using my wifi and it kicked them off.

  5. hamza chentir-avatar

    It's a great app But the gps don't work, idk why I'm using android 10 Any help plz

  6. Bob P Wilson-avatar

    PUBLIC APP COMMENT: I have tested this app & have installed it on all of my devices. I use only ad-free apps as I dispite the disruptive user experience caused by ads. My recommendation is based upon the Pro app version if applicable. Kind regards, Bob, Kansas City, USA _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ [NTS, Note To Self - This is one of my preferred apps in this category. I always use the ad-free version of apps & the Pro version is included in my Family Library.]

  7. Igor D.C.-avatar

    Waiting for db in nonencrypted storage to be implemented for Android 10.

  8. Jenna Clemmons-avatar

    I like the app i just wish i ubderstood it more and knew how to use all the features.

  9. larry laffer-avatar

    Great for the paranoid when you get to know your local towers any new towers mean someone is in trouble! Would be good if it could use the phones network neghbour capabililities to pick up on nearbye hansets that dont have wifi or bluetooth switched on but still 5. Stars!

  10. Mike Nice-avatar

    Used to work great but now it is dificult to use. Remember netstumbler ... Back to the basics guys..

  11. Stoyan Miladinov-avatar

    bug: lost gps and erase all data was found in the moment. The old version was much better. --- The settings are not related to the problem. Everything is working correctly but after we say lost gps for a few minutes suddenly everything that he has found so far just happens to 0. That is, loss of data. And something very stupid is done with the bluetooth option, why not detect devices when there is no active gps, that's illogical. Example: I'm in the subway there are thousands of released bluetooth. Do not get me wrong, the app is cool, but after these updates something goes wrong.

    Hi guys, great job you're doing here. Happy user for the past two years. In the latest version you've added Bluethooth support "* 2.32 - 2.36 (10/04/2018) Added bluetooth support" - but it seems you're not logging the BT entries? Any plans to do that? Thanks for a great app and keep up the good work.

  13. Woody Williams-avatar

    A decent Wardriver for Wifi, cellular & Bluetooth. I've been running it for the last 24+ hours and it's battery-drain is acceptable to me -- YMMV. I opted to aggregate my data with the WiGLE collective and would recommend the do the same. If you don't, you'll still have an excellent stand-alone wardriver.

  14. Airika Audio-avatar

    Working great on my cell. Scans are super fast. Great way to scope an area without any bigger tools at hand. Far more discreet than some options. thx

  15. Brian Moker-avatar

    map updates are slow to nonexistent when in motion, even when other apps (Google Maps, Waze, etc) have no issue updating their maps WiGLE will either take 30+seconds to update the map, if it does at all, compared to Google Maps, Waze, etc taking AT MOST 3 seconds to update once a GPS lock has been achieved

  16. Martin Topping-avatar

    Great app. I am a user of the BTWifi-with-Fon network of open wifi access points in the UK and WiGLE is enabling me to plot on a map all the local APs. Plus there are APs that other users have already stumbled. Very handy.

  17. Nucleus Rhyme-avatar

    A nice app. The interface is dated, it was good back in the days of Android 4.4. It also eats a lot of battery, although there is probably no other way without employing programmers that know how to optimize stuff. The developer reminds me that the OSS crowd is also the most unpleasant.

  18. Mad Mech-avatar

    cant register recapatcha fails everytime so horrid that i refuse to attempt again tried 10 times. How many times do you need to loop through the images to confirm im human. its ignorant . just dont bother with this one people unless the registration process is fixed its pretty useless. remove the capatchas. Uninstalling.

  19. Deadgost-avatar

    It need more work , it should have a option if I want to mark my target WiFi separated from other , there is no option like that Also if I want to see how many wep ,wpa and wpa2 are there , there is no function to tell the difference you have to check each one of the manually

  20. ama ama-avatar

    thanks to google policy change, it's excessively interactive now. the last update forces user to turn on wifi manually. that's taken it into "too much user interaction required" land and makes it less useful, more tedious.

  21. Kyle Blimkie-avatar

    So addictive and a great tool for quickly seeing all the channels being used. ONE feature I would love is being able to copy the MAC adress to clipboard. I also love the wifi overtime chart on the website. Excellent work.

  22. A Google user-avatar

    Bluetooth scanning doesn't work on Huawei Ascend XT² (Android 8) but everything else does. Picked up 300 new networks and 6 new cell towers as of writing, and that's just today's catalog!

  23. Mark B-avatar

    Still works like a charm although if you upgraded to Android 10, you can disable the new Wi-Fi throttling 'feature' by enabling developer settings and turning off Wi-Fi scan throttling under the Networking section.

  24. James Smith-avatar

    Really cool app, I sure do hope they do something about the Android Pie issue but that isnt developers fault. great app, it's fun, and informative. Thanks for your contribution dev!

  25. George Lester-avatar

    Outstanding wardriver. No need for dedicated hardware with this - and does a good job informing you of your privacy, and letting you control your own data.

  26. Tim Stewart-avatar

    excellent app. the only thing that would make it better would be USB & or bluetooth GPS support, allowing other devices to use the gps as a com port or similar.

  27. Phil Cevey-avatar

    Why can I not see the wifi encryption status? Please I would very much like to hear the justification for this. I need to be able to filter by open, WEP, WPA2 etc.

  28. Attila Fehér-avatar

    If I turn on the wifi scanning, the app freezing and slow down after 2 minute and stop/pause scanning is difficulty. Unstable and useless😠👎 (Samsung Galaxy S10)

  29. Alex Maksimov-avatar

    Map does not load while lockon is on & I move, everything else looks ok after one year usage. Except proxy settings -- you can not setup a proxy (needed only in Russia :))

  30. Nik Upton-avatar

    Fantastic. Except Android 10 does not allow database backups. Other than that flawless.

    Can't Register... I tried several times already with different username / password and I still receiving the "Login failed,, check password?" message... Any ideas?

  32. crp crp-avatar

    Morning Guys, thanks for this great app. I have a question. Is there a possibility to have 1 wiggle account on multiple devices for database upload to wiggle.

  33. Robert Byrd-avatar

    Completely #1 and useful!

  34. David-avatar

    Suddenly detecting my own Bluetooth search beacons on Pixel 2xl. I don't have any other Bluetooth services running but my Wigle Map is littered with blank bluetooth entries.

  35. Teekay Fourtwoone-avatar

    Turns on Bluetooth despite having it turned off and having "Enable Bluetooth scanning" unchecked in the app. Not impressed.

  36. Mike Savad-avatar

    this worked out fine for a while but today i tried it and it locked my phone up so bad i had to restart it.

  37. Korey Kimlicka-avatar

    Doesn't display discovered AP's on the map after a few restarts. Doesn't even show new AP's anymore, either.

  38. Troy Nall-avatar

    other app makers could learn from this developer. easy and straightforward. no deceptive ads. will update review in7 days.

  40. Alvina Ben-avatar

    Newbie to watrdriving but it's very interesting app

  41. Skittles-avatar

    Good for wardriving. Better than having a laptop in a car with airodump-ng, as a phone (while less powerful) is more portable. Would recommend

  42. death to disco-avatar

    excellent app that everyone should appreciate

  43. Mike Coles-avatar

    You're tracking bluetooth now? No. I worked years to give you free data. No longer. F off. You will not be providing tracking information.

    Love it Wigle it shows how they have peppered me with WIFi to hack and exploit me. They destroyed my since of well being from hacking and spying and making the internet almost imposible to use sometines. Theyve hacked all my apps and put my on some ESS beta I never asked for or wanted. They done this in IOS, Google, Microsoft, and many others. i have logged 17,000 networks in a week i cant upload because of DNS problems. They set me up on my own server and routed everything through it. ALL DNSbad

    For what seems like well over a year, I have not seen an 'appropriate' number of light and dark blue balloons appear when the map is turned on during wardriving. I used to see plenty of blue balloons, presumably every one that should properly appear. THese days, almost no blue balloons appear.

    Almost every time I get into the car. I turn on the Wiggle War Drive program and the phones GPS. I check to see how many new wi-fi and cellphone hot-spots are out there. Be careful it does use the battery power. Make sure you have a car charger in the car with you. Update: The program seems like it freezes in the background while not knowing the app is still running. The only way to stop the the scan is from the notification bar on the phone.
