What Is WiFi Tracker and What It Does?
Wifi Tracker is a WiFi scanner that can help you see the state of wireless networks in your area. Ever wanted to sniff out and plot those elusive open WiFi access points? This wi-fi scanner uses your GPS and WiFi in combination to scan for Wi-Fi hotspots, then saves their location to a file which you can then export a KML file to Google Earth , export to Kismet, or use realtime web uploads to scan and upload in realtime! Excellent for wardriving in your car, to scan lots of hotspots – it can handle logging the position of thousands of accesspoints without crashing and without posting duplicates. Quite useful for site surveys (scanning for unsecured Wi Fi access points), or surveying large areas as part of a larger security audit. Has slow down options for scanning whilst walking as well, so you can go for a stroll or a run around a site and the scanner will still work without consuming lots of battery power It can also be used if you just have a passing interest in seeing what is out there – for example you could take a drive around your city centre and see the state of access points (open, secured, insecure, etc). The CSV export lets you export the data for manipulation in your favourite spreadsheet editor (Excel, OpenOffice / LibreOffice), or visualise access points using the KML export. WiFi Tracker also knows about who made the accesspoint that it has found so can detect most accesspoints made by netgear, d-link, 3com, apple, linksys, and so on If the Torque app is also running on the device, and you have a high-resolution (QStarz 818XT) GPS device connected to that app, then WiFi Tracker will augment it’s GPS data automatically with the higher resolution data from Torque If you have any suggestions.

Step By Step Guide To Install & Use WiFi Tracker For PC
Using an Android App on Windows Computer is kind of tricky and you need to follow some extra steps. It is because the Windows computer (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows) can only run the EXE file as an application. Since Android apps (https://www.android.com) come with a .apk file that your computer can not run or execute. In this case, we will use some third party software like Bluestacks or Nox Player (software or app or games emulator) who can emulate your WiFi Tracker app on PC and you are ready to start using this app from your computer.
It is worth mentioning that, WiFi Tracker is a popular app and will run smoothly in your Windows 10/8/7 and even in XP or the vintage Windows Vista.
Just need to follow the steps mentioned below to make it work perfectly. Follow on…
Step 01: Install BlueStacks or Nox Player on your computer. If you haven’t yet downloaded and installed those, please go to this link https://www.bluestacks.com/ (for BlueStacks Official Download) or https://www.bignox.com/ (for Nox Player Official Download).
Step 02: Once BlueStacks is installed on your PC, open it from your Start menu or icon located at Desktop. It will take some time to initiate all the programs for the very first time.
Step 03: When BlueStacks is fully opened; just click on the “Google Play Store” icon which you will find on the home screen of BlueStacks.
Step 04: On the Play Store, find the “Search Box” at the top and type WiFi Tracker and hit enter on your keyboard. Pick the first app and then click on “Install”. If you don’t find your app on Google Play Store, then use this link – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.prowl.wifiscanner and download the APK and once downloaded; drag that APK file on the home screen of BlueStacks and it will be installed automatically.
Step 05: After the app installation is complete; open WiFi Tracker from the “installed apps” section of Bluestacks. Or, you will find your newly installed app on the home screen of BlueStacks.
