powerful wireless network auditing tool, 6th generation WiFi Pineapple software featuring Pine Access Point, web interface and modules. It is mostly used for wireless penetration testing, especially stealing data. The WiFi Pineapple Nano acts as a "flase" or "evil" WiFi where the Client connects to. It does that by scanning all the Pings of the devices which are looking for WiFi connections and saves the names of said WiFis in a pool. The Pineapple Nano then offers a WiFi with teh identocal name to the network in hope of one device connecting to it. When a device is connected the Pineapple Nano can, with modules, attack teh device in different ways. These ways include:

  • stealing data,
  • observing the device traffic to the internet,
  • creating fake pages to steal user information and many more

a full list of the modules currently available for the WiFi Pineapple Nano can be seen under: https://www.wifipineapple.com/modules

User Interface

After connecting the Pineapple Nano to your device correctly as can be seen in https://wiki.elvis.science/index.php?title=Pineapple_Setup a User Interface (UI) opens under the IP address

The User Interface is the main working space for the penetration tester. The UI includes:

  • Dashboard - shows the uptime of the device, the clients connected and the SSIDs in the pool
  • Recon - scanning the Network
  • Clients - List of Clients connected
  • Tracking
  • Modules - List of downloadable Modules
  • Filters - Filtering Clients and connections
  • PineAP - Main part of creating a new WiFi where youc an see the SSID pool, add and remove them and start it in order for the SSIDs to be public
