I am planning to track the Network calls being made by apps and the website of an Android Device.

I have used the Burp Suite tool for tracking the network calls. Until now the Android Device and the Laptop were connected to the same WIFI.

But now I am planning to use an emulator which will not be hosted in my Laptop.

Is there any way to track network calls of an Android Device which is not connected to the same WIFI as my laptop?

  • Is your Android device rooted or have bootloader unlocked?

  • Burpsuite is better than tcpdump. tcpdump cannot decrypt https traffic. tcpdump is useful when you want to capture every network traffic and not just http.
