Videogames don?t make violent people, lag does. It is a very common phrase these days and it actually is true. In fact, it doesn?t only apply to videogaming, but also to almost everything related to Internet activity and lag. We already know how lag happens and why it happens.
Some can be controlled and managed like reducing the running programs that are wasting your bandwidth, closing down unwanted apps, etc. Some cannot be controlled, like a problem with your Internet service provider (but this can actually be fixed if you would just contact your ISP) and other people leeching the hell out of your Internet speed (watching HD movies, downloading large files and TORRENTS). The good thing is, you can do something about leechers now and you can do it with the convenience of your Android device.
You can do this by logging in to your router, but that is time-consuming, so it is better to resort to a better alternative by using an app called WiFiKill. Using the app, you can temporarily ?kick? people out from your WiFi. The funny, but interesting part is, you can do this on ANY WiFi network.
If your device is already rooted and is running on Android 4.0 or higher, you?re in luck because all you have to do is just download and install it. If yours isn?t rooted yet, you can follow this easy to do guide on how to root your Android device.
Simply download the WiFIKill Downloader App here. Once downloaded, simply install and run it. You will just have to select ?Download and Install Free version? to try out the free version of the app and to see if you want more out of it. The free version has ads and the ?timeout? limit is only limited to 5 minutes. No more, no less, but this should be enough to stop anybody from attempting to reconnect. The paid version doesn?t have any ads and you can set the timeout for any amount of time.
Once you launch the app, you will be presented with a list of connected devices to a certain WiFI network, You can tap ?Grab All? to view details on each of these devices to have a clue on which device they are and how much bandwidth they are using on the network, as well as the most recently visited sites. You can simply tap ?Kill All? to kick them all out at once, but this is a bit suspicious, especially if you?re the only one left connected, so kicking them out one by one would be the wiser decision. Just pinpoint those who are hogging most of the resources.
This may seem diabolical, but some people would just go to such lengths, for fun or for personal need. The interesting thing about this is that you can also use this on public WiFi, but don?t forget to disable the app once you leave.
A little note: Please only use this app during emergency situations, especially if you’re in a public place. Remember, sharing is caring!
