r4ven: Track the IP Address and GPS Location of the User’s Smartphone or PC

The tool hosts a fake website which uses an iframe to display a legit website and, if the target allows it, it will fetch the Gps location (latitude and longitude) of the target, capture multiple pictures of the target along with IP Address and Device Information.

This tool is a Proof of Concept and is for Educational Purposes Only.

Using this tool, you can find out what information a malicious website can gather about you and your devices and why you shouldn’t click on random links or grant permissions like Location to them.

IP location VS. GPS location

Localization with r4ven
Localization with r4ven
  • Geographic location based on IP address is NOT accurate,
  • Does not provide the location of the target.
  • Instead, it provides the approximate location of the ISP (Internet service provider)
  • GPS fetch almost exact location because it uses longitude and latitude coordinates.
  • Once location permission is granted
    • Accurate location information is received to within 20 to 30 meters of the user’s location.
    • (it’s almost the exact location)
