How to Unlock Faceniff 2.1b and Hijack Web Sessions on Android
Faceniff is an Android app that allows you to sniff and intercept web session profiles over the WiFi that your mobile is connected to. It can hijack sessions from Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Amazon, VKontakte, Tumblr, MySpace, Tuenti, MeinVZ/StudiVZ, blogger, Nasza-Klasa and more. However, the free version of Faceniff is limited to use only 3 hijacked profiles. If you want more, you will need an activation code that you can buy from the app.
But what if you don’t want to pay for the activation code? Is there a way to unlock Faceniff 2.1b and use it without any limitations? The answer is yes, but you will need some tools and skills to do it. In this article, we will show you how to crack Faceniff 2.1b and unlock its full potential.
A rooted Android device with Faceniff 2.1b installed. You can download it from here.
A computer with adb (Android Debug Bridge) installed. You can download it from here.

Connect your Android device to your computer via USB and enable USB debugging mode.
Open a command prompt on your computer and type adb devices to make sure your device is recognized.
Type adb pull /data/app/org.ponury.faceniff-1.apk faceniff.apk to copy the Faceniff apk file from your device to your computer.
Make a backup of the faceniff.apk file and rename it to faceniff.bak.
Open the faceniff.apk file with HxD and search for the hex string 0F 84 9E 00 00 00. This is the instruction that checks if the app is activated or not.

To hijack a session, simply tap on the icon of the service that you want to access. You will be redirected to the web browser with the session of the user that you selected.
You can now browse, post, comment, like, etc. as if you were that user. Be careful not to do anything suspicious or malicious that might alert the user or the service provider.
To stop hijacking a session, tap on the âSTOPâ button on the Faceniff app. You can also clear the list of sessions by tapping on the âCLEARâ button.
That’s it! You have successfully used Faceniff 2.1b to hijack web sessions on Android. Remember to use this app responsibly and ethically. Do not abuse it or harm anyone with it.
