So please use one of these apps instead. They all used plaintext network transmission on Feb 10, 2019, but eventually they may be fixed or removed.
Archived APKIf you don't have access to Google Play, use this archived copy of the app:
In the main Wireshark window, double-click the network interface that is being used to reach the Internet. On my system, it is "Wi-Fi: en0", outlined in green in the image below.
Wirehark starts displaying packets. At the top, in the Filter bar, enter this display filter:
Press Enter to filter the traffic.
On your Android device, in the vulnerable app, use the "Create Account" page to make an account.
Wireshark shows a captured POST request, as shown below.
In the top pane of Wireshark, right-click the POST request, and click Follow, "TCP Stream", as shown above.
TroubleshootingIf you don't see any packets, try these fixes:
- Click the red square button to stop the capture
- From the menu, click Capture, Options
- Choose a different network adapter
- If the "Link-layer header" is set to "802.11...", scroll to the right and uncheck the monitor box
The request appears, containing your credentials, as shown below.
