It does exactly what I need and works flawlessly. There's no bs, no ads. All I ever do is tap the capture button and share the generated file to further analyze it with wireshark on my laptop. It's not hard to stop the VPN in the Android settings, there's even a system notification.

It seems like a great idea, but it does not work on my Samsung S7 wth Android 8.0 (Oreo). Once the capture is running as a VPN, all applications lose network access. I tested tPacketCapture 2.0.1, which was updated three years ago (2015). Its age may explain it. My guess for a better solution is to VPN the phone to my own server with OpenVPN, and then I could run Wireshark on my server.

The instructions no longer work. To stop the packet capture you now have to go to Setup > Apps > tPacketCapture > Force Stop which actually works. That is annoying enough, but why does it need to setup VPN in the first place? That's bogus. It's too bad Wireshark hasn't been ported. Or better, TCPDump...
