So what does the WifiKill app do?
This app is designed to give you control over your WIFI network. If your network is too congested this app will allow you to remove the user or users who are hogging the bandwidth and slowing down your network. The APPs developers have described it as such. For example, if someone is hogging the bandwidth streaming their precious Keeping up with the Kardashians, you can remove them and keep all the bandwidth for yourself.
Downloading and running the APP through the Bluestacks Emulator has a number of benefits, firstly you can now run the APP on other than android devices, and secondly, you don’t need to root your device to run the APP, thirdly it offers an extra layer of security to your network.
One of the nice features of the APP is that booted users still see themselves as connected to the network. Many parents choose to use the WifiKill app to control their home networks, some may have children of different ages and may want to allow them separate access to the network.
Unfortunately, the nature of this APP means that it is open to abuse, it clearly demonstrates issues with WIFI security, and some people have used this to cause mischief. This has led Google to remove it from the play store. Please use this APP responsibly, thanks.
