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 visibile networks. Select your network. Known networks are preselected.

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 backgroud as of version 0.3! Yesh this means total protection all the time!

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:

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 You have an outdated packagelist.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
