With Pry-Fi, you can have your very own network analyzer. Pry-Fi’s main purpose is to analyze your WiFi network on Android in a similar way Wireshark would do for Windows and Unix operating systems. All data that is passing through your WiFi network is tracked and your identity is hidden from any outsiders who might be monitoring your WiFi activity.
