Wigle-BT Tool For Tracing Nearby Bluetooth Devices On Kali Linux

Bluetooth plays a significant role in our daily life and we have used Bluetooth from the start of the mobile phone era. Even in modern technology we still rely on Bluetooth for pairing with other devices like AirPods, Speakers, etc.

In today's article, we introduce you to a Python-coded tool used by professionals and hackers in the process of OSINT, known as "Wigle-BT". This tool allows you to get the approximate location of a Bluetooth device using the long-awaited: Wigle.net API.

The Wigle-BT uses trilateration to calculate the BT device location based on its signal strength and the location of nearby devices.

To use this tool, you need to have Python version 3 installed on your system and create a free account on Wigle.net to obtain your API key for integration with Wigle-BT.

Use these commands to set it up on your Linux system:

git clone https://github.com/e-m3din4/wigle-bt
cd wigle-bt && sudo pip3 install -r requirements.txt
sudo nano config.json

Now you have to enter your API key on the config file and make your script ready to work.

python3 wigle-bt.py

Enter the MAC address of the device you like to trace or find and the rest of things automated tool
