I have read multiple articles online that suggest that I test my own wifi network in order to see if it can be broken into, for security purposes of making sure that people can't use my home wifi without my permission. Most of the articles suggest using different tools, some of which use things like "packet injection". Before I test my network out, is downloading these tools to test the security of my own home wifi network legal?
