This app will monitor your WiFi connection. And when it is not connected to a trusted network, it will shutdown your wifi device.

The idea is that when you leave your home, your mobile phone is looking for WiFi networks. Nowadays companies uses WiFi tracking devices in order to see how much people are walking by. If this is done throughout a hole city, you can be 'followed'.

There are more solutions for this like MAC spoofing. But this app will also save some power, because it will shutdown the wifi device.

When you start the app, it is not monitoring your networks. First add a new trusted network. Pull down and select Update trusted networks. If your wifi is running, it shows a list of visible networks. Select your network. Known networks are pre-selected.

Trusted networks are saved with their name and mac address. This should prevent staying online on a spoofed WiFi network.

By then hitting the WiFiKilL3r button, the app will monitor your networks. And when you leave home, it will shutdown your WiFi. When it does, it will send a notification.

The app will be running in the background as of version 0.3! Yesh this means total protection all the time!

Dear theyosh,

thanks a lot for this nice idea to improve users privacy! :-)

One question from my side: Do you think you could build a simple toggle for switching on/off the daemon in Sailfish's quick-menue? I would dream about some toggle-button similar like airplane-mode, WiFi, mobile data, etc.

Maybe you could run the app completely in the background with such a button?

Thank you very much for your efforts! :-)

With best regards!

There is already... I have next to my airplane switch a wifi switch. So this is already possible with out an app.

No longer working after Sailfish upgrade.

I can't seem to add any trusted networks. I get this error:

Mar 22 14:01:56 Sailfish [10267]: [D] onError:82 - python error: Not a parameter list in call to WiFiKilL3r.save_trusted_network:

theyosh's picture

Should be fixed now

Hmm, is a bug: https://together.jolla.com/question/156736/2109-pyotherside-call_sync-br...

But somehow I cannot get to work on my Phone with latest version

theyosh's picture

Sorry for not replying. Will look into this also

I try to install this to my Jolla C, During the installation I get message about missing package:

File './mv/armv7hl/dbus-python3-1.2.9-1.1.9.armv7hl.rpm' not found on medium 'https://releases.jolla.com/releases/'

Obviously the installation does't continue.

Hi, this is resolved by updating your packages. You have an outdated packagelist.

Solution: Try refreshing all the packages in Warehouse or login with SSH and run pkcon refresh as nemo or zypper refresh as root

Thanks! Daemon made it really useful.

It is still systemd, so it should run every minute, but due to the deep sleep of the system,it is not that accurate. But for me, it works good enough
