I'm trying to analyze my flutter app's network traffic so I used burp suite for intercepting. First, I'm using the proxy option of burpsuite. I set my PC's IP address and port as 8080. Also in my Android device I set the proxy in WiFi with hostname as my PC IP address and port as 8080. Then I also installed the certificate from IP_address:8080. But still it doesn't capture any request of that app. But it can intercept some inbuilt apps.

What's the reason and what's the problem?

Not all Android apps respect the global/systemwide proxy settings, especially when running Android 7 or higher. It looks like you used a regular proxy but that might not work. You could try transparent proxies but that's considerably more difficult and might require rooting your device. I tried to do that a while ago in order to analyze the traffic of the official Stack Exchange Android app, but failed to do so because it's HTTPS traffic; instead, I choose to run it on an old device running Android 5.1.

  • Is there some other ways for analysing the network traffic of my app?

  • Using a transparent proxy probably works (it didn't for me because of HTTPS and not wanting to root the device).
