Unlike IMMonitor's other Facebook sniffer, IMMonitor Facebook Spy, this tool can scan and detect Facebook chat messages from any computer in your subnet. The other tool could only detect chatter coming from a single IP address at a time. Furthermore, Facebook Chat Monitor Sniffer doesn't even ask you to scan your home network. All you need to do is click on "Start" and the application will start detecting packages. I found it very easy to use and it simply worked. As soon as I started scanning, I sent some messages on Facebook and they were added to the list of captured messages one after the other, with my computer's IP address next to it. Some of the messages even said who they were from.
The PRTG packet sniffer only captures the headers of the packets traveling across your network. This gives the packet analyzer a speed advantage and it also reduces the amount of storage space needed to hold capture files. The dashboard of the packet sniffer categorizes traffic by application type. These include email traffic, web packets, chat app traffic data, and file transfer packet volumes.
I need to disagree that this method monitors all network traffic in/out of you home. I simply logs the ip addresses which is not the same thing. There are legitimate sites that can be visited where my teen can still get into trouble. What my main interest is what data is being exchanged with host IP addresses. Is it an innocent chat with one of her friend or is the pedophile across town trying to set up a meeting at the mall. Do you see the important difference. I have been scouring the web looking for a solution but all I can find is network sniffers that record everything in a sort of cryptic raw format and you have to be really savy to interpret the data and what it means.
Just like unsecured Wi-Fi, unencrypted messages are easy bait for sniffers. Choose to chat with your friends and family via an app that encrypts messages for end-to-end protection. WhatsApp, Viber, LINE, and Telegram are several of the most well-known options. Chances are that you and your contacts are already using one of those.
Once, we were having a conversation with our computer science professor about Wireshark and he told us, how he previously used it in a class and even saw facebook chats of some of his students. As I know, facebook is encrypted, so does anybody have an idea how he was able to do that? 2b1af7f3a8
