Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

I have occasionally seen this happen - rebooting the phone fixes the problem every time so I suspect it's just an Android issue, something probably got "updated" but didn't require a restart. Android apps seem to get updated all the time so I assume there are a lot of small issues in the background ...

Re: Pattern matching/group on SSID names per area city?

Hacking WiFi passwords isn't a Wigle problem, Wigle just records the locations and SSIDs, it's as private information as a weather forecast. If you need to find out how easy it is to hack WiFi then buy a WiFi pineapple from Hak5.

Re: Launch Wigle at boot is not working on Android 11

I saw your post and tried it on my Pixel3 running Android 11 - you are right that the start at boot is not working any longer, there have been a massive amount of changes to the Android OS with the latest release so this is no big surprise.

Re: This weeks Android issue

It's a Pixel 3, it was running Android 10 but it updated to Android 11 this morning. After I headed into work I turned Wigle on, driving my normal route, and every device and AP that I passed showed up as a "new" device! I thought that the upgrade had deleted my database but when I arrived at work I...

This weeks Android issue

Wigle started up and stalled this morning saying that it was "Waiting for GPS" - turns out that Google seems to have decided that I need to give permission for Wigle to access my location, something that has not been an issue in years. I went to the Google location setting and it displayed a new lis...

Re: Upload failure

All is working, once I saw the password failure I though it might be a services issue. Everything is fixed and works as far as us great unwashed users can see - we appreciate everything getting fixed so quickly. Thanks You

Re: Upload failure

It took a bit of fiddling around but I managed to upload it by copying it to Google Drive and then manually uploading it (twice by accident, sorry about that). Turns out the file was a lot larger than I was expecting so it may just have been a size issue. I'll clear the phone and reinstall Wigle.

Settings? We've heard of them.

Looking at the Google Play Android page I saw "Thanks for your interest! While the app is a bit of an expert tool, maybe the forums at can provide some insight! Feel free to reach out with questions there or in email" so here I am (LOL) just to see if there is anything here and aft...

Re: Detecting Gas Pump Skimmers by Bluetooth signature (Bluetana / SkimPlus)

I would expect that the Wigle app could be modified to provide an alert when a specific ID is found but the problem is that Wigle can then be used for hunting.

Re: wow...everybody buying online ?

"can I run a smartphone WITHOUT cellphone ability?"
Yes, you can use an old phone with a SIM card but you don't need a phone number/account, all you need is a functioning GPS on the phone and then you can upload via WiFi when you get home.

Re: Querying for exact match SSID name

I wonder if there might be a market for an app that simply records the last 48 hours of nearby wireless devices (particularly BT devices) with the option to search for them in the database and display some statistics or send an alert is a specific ID appeared. This might be a potential security app ...

Re: New WiGLE map´s uploaded to Wikimedia? (current ones are from 2007)

I did a quick edit to remove the logos if this helps - the file appears to be too big to upload here so I've posted it on pixeldrain - it will be available for 100 days.

Cell phone coverage maps?

There's an interesting story (link below) about the state of Vermont checking the phone company claims for cell phone coverage and finding that they are very misleading - it is possible that Wigle could be used to guide a project like this?
