While the term “hacking” is often used incorrectly when dealing with Android, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t opportunities to actually hack something. While we certainly don’t condone malicious hacking, a friendly prank played on friends and family often doesn’t hurt. Users looking to play some jokes on their pals via their internet connection now can using an app that does all the hard work for you.
XDA Senior Member EdgaBimbam lets us know about Netwoork Spoofer, which allows users to have a little more control than is typically necessary on unsecured internet connections. As EdgaBimbam explains:
Network Spoofer lets you mess with the internet on other people’s computers.
Network Spoofer lets you mess with websites on other people’s computers – flip pictures, change Google searches, redirect websites, swap YouTube videos and many more features to come.
Of course, with any application that can be misused, you have your standard boilerplate warning:
DISCLAIMER: The developer(s) of this application are not in any way responsible for it’s use or misuse; only use it for demonstration purposes on networks for which you have permission to do so.
In other words, don’t do anything illegal. However, if you’re looking for a fun prank and have been given permission to mess with someone else’s network, it may be worth a try.
