About this app

Packet capture/Network traffic sniffer app with SSL decryption.
Not that feature rich yet, but it's a powerful debugging tool especially when developing an app.

If you can't capture your app's SSL packets

Do one of the followings:

- Set targetSDKversion to 23 or lower

- Setup security config described as 'The default configuration for apps targeting Android 6.0 (API level 23) and lower' at

- Capture network packets and record them.
- SSL decryption using man-in-the-middle technique.
- No root required.
- Easy to use.
- Show packet in either hex or text.

You don't need to setup a dedicated proxy server on your PC. All you need is just your Android device.

How to get rid of PIN number

If you want to get rid of entering PIN number on a lock screen after Packet Capture is uninstalled, it is needed to clear credential storage.
Go to OS Setting->Security->Clear credentials

Does what it says on the tin, but fairly limited. SSL/TLS capture doesn't work saying could not create file (OnePlus 5T Android 9), so can't decrypt secure traffic, which is most apps nowadays. Also cannot clear captures. I do like it has the option to pick an app you want to capture from. Also, some apps fail to connect, and some domain names aren't resolved in captured data so you see IPs instead. Hope these will get fixed in the future.

I'm trying to capture the wifi traffic to and from my cheap chinese drone (commands and video). This app does seem to be able to capture it, but the information given is extremely raw. So I tried to export the capture and import it to wireshark on my PC, but the format seems to sadly be incompatable. Would be awesome if we cuold export to wireshark format!

Great app and works well. However in Oreo and later changes have been made to how SSL (user certs) are used. Oreo also has the other issue when on WiFi and connect to VPN, WiFi apps won't work. This is not the fault of packet capture, but down to "desirable results" of regressions in Oreo code. In 7 and below this app is flawless in operation.
