Discover nearby WiFi networks and audit their security
You might not know what WPS is all about, but don't worry, we'll tell you: it's a mechanism included in many routers to simplify the connection of any device to a WiFi network when we don't know its password. However, to be able t connect to that router, this function needs to be enabled.
It works as follows: the smartphone or tablet transmits a number code to the router, an 8-digit PIN, and the latter sends back data to be able to connect. It definitely simplifies the connection to a network as it's much easier to access using this method than trying to guess a WPA2 password.

The only drawback is that, to be able to use this WiFi unlocker, you're going to need super user permissions. In other words, you need to root your Android thanks to applications of the likes of KingRoot.
