About WiEye - WiFi Scanner

WiEye is a FREE 802.11 WiFi Analyzer for Android. WiEye can be used for wireless site surveys, wifi scanning, and wireless discovery. It reports the Name, BSSID, Signal Strength (dBm), Channel, and Frequency of all access points within range. It also graphs this data so you can see WiFi congestion for each available channel.


By using this WiFi scanner, you are helping support the Southern Methodist University wireless technology research group learn more about wireless signals in current use across the world and develop more efficient protocols and algorithms.


We hope that you find WiEye as a useful application for your wireless scanning needs. Alongside the application, we collect usage statistics from willing participants to be used as anonymized performance characteristics of wireless networks in many cities around the world as well as the user's context (driving, sitting, standing, etc.) when the sniffing is performed. The data will contribute to a global picture of wireless networks and their performance. We offer WiEye free of charge in the hopes that there would be a large user base for the user study. Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this privacy policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of usage statistics. The following outlines our privacy policy.

- Before or at the time of collecting usage statistics, we will disassociate the measured data from the user's personal identification.

- We will collect and use of usage statistics solely with the objective of fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other compatible purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law.

- We will only retain usage statistics as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.

- We will collect usage statistics by a lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.

- A user's location should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date and without regard to the person's identity.

- We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

- We will make readily available to customers information about our policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.

Screenshots show 5GHz signals, but when I installed it, only showed 2.4Ghz. No good for me. Suggest you correct app or screenshots.

Used to work fine, but the latest version is completely broken on Asus TransformerPad (TF701T running KitKat). It is also now requesting permission to make and manage phone calls, which I suspect is why it crashes on the phoneless TransformerPad, but why is this permission required?

This has been a fantastic help in getting our, our friend's and our office's wireless routers set on optimal channels. Spot on and has resulted in super stable wifi in crowded areas. Just wish the fonts were bigger!

70%
by ####:

Good channel signal strength graph but lacks a time graph and doesn't seem to react to selecting on the graph. Useful in environments with only a few Access points, but minimalistic.

J70%
by J####:

N70%
by N####:

Fantastic app for monitoring networks, but the graph is not very useful in dense areas

70%
by ####:

Terrible UI, way too minimalist, too hard to use. Just use normal labels and UX components, like the next guy.

70%
by ####:

Only thing that bothers me is that fonts are too small to read in the main screen

70%
by ####:

I have been using channel 9 for years and it turns out it was just as congested as channel 1. Switched to channel 4 based on what I saw with this app, thanks dev!

N70%
by N####:

Used to be able to see the names and colors of the networks, but now they're too small... Fix this please...!!!
