Want to twirl your fingers on your smartphone and hack into FBI servers? Want to solve crimes and impress other with your whacky hacking skills? Or want to get rich like John Connor from Terminator by hacking ATMs? Well you CANNOT do that! There are no best hacking apps for Android. As great as Android is, there is possibly no way a simple app will be able to hacking into your ex’s Facebook account and check who they are dating now. Sorry to disappoint you folks, if it were this easy, everyone would be doing that.
So what is the point of this article then? This article is for those who know a thing or two about hacking and merely need simple tools to augment that. I’m talking about guys with thick spectacles, degrees in software engineering, revolving chairs, epic gaming PC and names which sound remarkably like Billa. Even if you are a handsome looking hacker like that guy from Watchdogs, you will sometimes need the aid of trusty apps which help you with white hat hacking.
This article is not going to be your traditional list article which I usually write about. I won’t be listing any apps with features and whatnot because those who actually need them will know just by name. So yes, this is not a traditional article and it is not for everyday Android users. I will however list the apps in order so it will be easier to track them. I would also suggest that you ignore the ratings on the Google Play page because some people think they can hack pentagon with their smartphones.
Lets see Best Android Hacking Apps 2016 that are meant for hacking, hackers, security researchers;
This app is probably the most neglected one on the list because of its off looking interface. But if you need work done, this app can really help you in that. If you are a penetration tester or even an IT administrator, this app will provide invaluable tools to you.
This won’t be the best hacking app for Android though because it can only scan for exploits. If you have a keen eye for exploits, you may be able to do some hacking but it sure won’t be from your smartphone though, you will actually need to have access to a Linux or Windows based personal computer.

This app requires a rooted smartphone to function fully but if you are using this app, chances are you have already rooted your smartphone. I unfortunately cannot root my work smartphone so was not able to test the Network Sniffer or host discovery features of the app but the rest of the app seems to be working perfectly.
If you want to monitor a network you own or manage, this is a good app for you to use. Thankfully it comes with a sensible interface which prioritizes information over looks and yet still manages to look fine.
I will not go deeper into what this app does because frankly speaking it will take a lot more than just hundred words to explain that. But for those who know what this app can do, it provides more versions available than any other app on the Google Play Market.
The app is also able to update the versions automatically so you don’t have to manually update them. This installer also comes with a pretty great scripter that allows you to run as well as manage your scripts. Of course the advance features will require a rooted device.
Want to discover your network? Get this app on your Android device. This is not the best hacking app for Android but it can help you in knowing how many wannabe hackers are using your internet connection to torrent illegal movies.
This is a great way to even know the mac addresses of the connected devices. The interface could use a bit lifting up but the clunky design does give it more credibility as a hacking app for Android. Apart from that there is nothing more to the app.
This is one of the best network tools for Android available today. I have personally used it a lot of times and it delivers each and every time. It can discover all the connected devices to your WiFi network. There is no restriction on the discovered devices as well.
The app also catches the MAC address and details the device manufacturer so you can determine who is using the network. I use this to close other devices from accessing my network when gaming, I don’t want freeloaders from my neighbors leeching off my speed and causing lag.
There are a ton of more features in the app which can really help an IT administrator or security personnel. If you need one network app on Android, get this one first and see if it works as good for you as it has for me.
I personally don’t endorse hacking; unless it is white hat one.
These days hacking have gotten really hard and only a few dedicated people are actually good at it. Before you say anything DDOS attacks are not hacking, they are like thousands of head banging on a door at once.
