Do you share a Wi-Fi network with someone and end up frustrated because all the bandwidth is being hogged? Well, there’s a very mean, yet effective, solution to your problem available on the Android Market right now. With WiFiKill, you can now do what should be considered the meanest thing you can do to a person using the internet; kicking them off the Wi-Fi! Normally, this is managed through a PC with admin rights to the Wi-Fi router, but WiFiKill is here to give you control, and make war as you kick people off of a Wi-Fi network so that you get the bandwidth you need.
Be sure your Android device is rooted if you want to run this app, as it will not work on non rooted devices. The app is actually more simple than what you might anticipate from the task that it manages to accomplish. The best part about this app is that, once you kick someone off the Wi-Fi network, that person would continue to see the network and and the signal strength as it was. It would appear as if the internet has just slowed down to an excruciatingly slow speed.
When you run the app for the first time, be sure to allow the superuser request. Hit the On button and the app will start searching for devices that are connected to the Wi-Fi network you’re on. Now, how would you go about kicking people off the network? Simply select the device you want kicked and voila, you will soon start hearing the person with that device start complaining about the internet. Optionally, you can also hit the All button to kick off all the devices connected to the network you’re on. They will never know what hit them.
Hit the Settings to bring up a few options available to you, including the option to choose the rejection method. The app has no fancy additional options available to it for now, and it stays true to what it does best. We ended up killing the internet for a handful of unsuspecting members of our team at the Addictive Labs (Editor’s note: it wasn’t as funny then as it sounds now) and for some odd reason, it brought a huge grin to our faces. However, jokes aside, use this app responsibly and in good humor without actually making enemies, because you never know, someone else you know might have read this article as well.
