FaceNiff and Firesheep: Dangerous tools out in the open

Firesheep allows any hacker to steal your Facebook and Twitter account when you browse on public wifi. On public wifi networks, all the data transmitted between your computer and the public wifi hotspot or router is unencrypted. This means that anyone can eavesdrop on your data in seconds. You can read more about this on our public wifi security page.


However, a new player has come into the scene and that is FaceNiff.

FaceNiff allows mobile phone users to steal Facebook and Twitter accounts from anyone. There is no laptop or desktop required. All they need to do is walk around and keep FaceNiff open. In minutes they will have stolen everyone's Facebook and Twitter account that is in the same public wifi network as them.


How do I protect against FaceNiff and Firesheep?

Private Internet Access is strongly committed to privacy and security and provides high level encryption and security against FaceNiff which will help you stay protected while browsing on public wifi hotspots. Our service operates on Android, iPad, iPhone, iTouch, Windows, Linux, and macOS over multiple VPN protocol options including OpenVPN and WireGuard®.
