    The objective of the thesis is to present a way to track wireless networks users and to show analysis examples of captured data. Using a router, additional software and with aid of basic components of communication when connecting to a wireless network, probe requests, we created a solution that allowed us to capture wireless data and helped us create some visual analysis of that data. As an experiment, we performed collection of test data, created analysis examples of caputred data and we proposed usages of our solution in real world. We also presented the concept of determining user's location with use of trilateration. Some of the captured data, like MAC address, could be classified as personal data as it is possible, with right approach, to determine identity of an individual. Aim of thesis is also to shed some light on legal aspects of such data collection and to remind reader on the issue of personal data protection, which are in these times, collected on almost every step we take.
