Kali Linux NEW “Undercover” Mode Feature to HIDE from Public Eyes

Kali Linux Adds “Undercover” Mode

Kali is a Linux distribution created for ethical hacking and penetration testing. It is commonly used by researchers and red teams to perform security tests against organizations.

  • Kali Linux 2019.4 was released last week and comes with quite a few updates and bug fixes, but one features stands out more than others: Undercover Mode. A feature that allows users to quickly make the Kali desktop look like Windows 10.

The reasoning behind Undercover mode is actually pretty simple and rational: draw less suspicion while working in a public setting.

Say you are working in a public place, hacking away, and you might not want the distinctive Kali dragon for everyone to see and wonder what it is you are doing. So, we made a little script that will change your Kali theme to look like a default Windows installation. That way, you can work a bit more incognito. After you are done and in a more private place, run the script again and you switch back to your Kali theme. Like magic!
