War Driving 101

A few weeks ago a non-tech friend said he’d heard someone talk about this thing called War Driving so I explained that essentially, War Driving is about locating WiFi access points and recording their geographical location.

Upon seeing a confused look, I told him that he too could undertake a very basic form of wardriving using any device that has wifi capabilities. Basically, to turn it on and see which access points are broadcasting their location and writing down the details. Of course he didn’t believe that anyone would go through all that trouble, so to prove him wrong, Girl Cynic and I went on a little adventure.
