Monitoring Android traffic with Wireshark


Ever wonder what data is being sent out by your Android device? Here’s a post from LinuxJournal outlining how to monitor your device’s WiFi traffic. The technique involves setting up a man-in-the-middle Wireless Access Point (WAP) on your Ubuntu Linux box, then connecting your Android device via WiFi to this point. Wireshark is then run on the Linux box to sniff the Android traffic.
