WiGLE is an OSINT tool that records the last and first location of a device using the MAC address and BSSID. This information can be used to locate a target. This tool is not as precise as using a GPS system, but it can be helpful to an attacker who wants to discover a Wi-Fi network in a given location.

Wigle is a mobile OSINT tool that helps you locate a target wireless network. It works by scanning for nearby Wifi hotspots and shows the default location, longitude, and latitude. This tool is designed to operate on the Android platform and has been tested on 7.0 Nougat.
WiGLE is free to use, but you must know that there is a daily limit for using it. This limit is set to keep the service free for all. Abusing the daily limit can lead to your account being suspended. If you use multiple accounts, you are liable to be banned from the service.
Wigle is a smartphone app that tracks wireless networks. The app logs the name of the wireless network and the device’s BSSID. The BSSID should not change. Wigle uses this information to catalog devices and networks.
The Wigle application is a useful tool for OSINT operations. The software helps you locate your targets by identifying their SSIDs. For example, you can use the SSID of the AP target to find their location. This way, you can identify their real location and use this information to track them.
WiGLE records information about wireless networks. You can collect and use this information to find out which networks are available in a particular region or city. You can even get statistics by region, country, and user. The WiGLE database can be accessed through the API. For more information, check out WiGLE’s website.
The Wigle area search function is useful for tracking down targets that are not located near a Wi-Fi access point. Users can enter a zip code or an address and browse the map to determine the target area. They can also search by network name to find the network they want to attack. However, in busy metropolitan areas, pinpointing the exact location can be difficult. It can also be difficult to distinguish one network from another.
