Is there a way to see a list of the other devices connected to a public Wifi hotspot, like at Starbucks?
I'm curious if this is possible by non-network administrators.
Most unencrypted wireless networks have client isolation enabled. This means that users are not aware of each other.
You can test whether or not isolation is enabled by pinging, port scanning, etc., the rest of the subnet.
Tools like NMap/Zenmap can scan open tcp/udp ports and report back what it finds. That's just one of many network auditing tools that may work on a given network.
There are multiple different ways hackers and unethical individuals use to monitor public traffic connected to public wireless hotspots.
Were you expecting a list of tools you can try out yourself? You asked if it is possible. It is.
Thank you for your interest in this question.
