You may have been looking for a way to hack WiFi password and you may have searched the internet for it. But what you can mostly find is a pile of advertisement and websites that are trying to force you to install some app. You shouldn’t be easily deceived by such websites if you want to find a WiFi hack tool that actually works. In this article, I will examine different methods for hacking WiFi networks. Being aware of these methods is essential if you would want to protect your wireless networks against hackers.
How to hack WiFi password
Nowadays, there are many methods to hack wireless routers. These methods mostly depend on the type of encryption and the protocol. Most of the old encryption methods and protocols are now broken and you can easily hack WiFi networks that use obsolete encryption. One of these encryption methods is WEP which has been broken for years now and there are many applications that are able to hack WiFi password protected by this encryption method. Here is an overall list of the major methods through which you can hack WiFi.
Hack WiFi with physical access to router
The easiest and the fastest way to get access to the password of a WiFi network is through having physical access to the router. If you manage to have access to the router, you can simply press and hold the reset button for a few second and you can reset the router. By resetting the router, you can set a new password for it. This is by far the easiest way to hack WiFi password.
Open the configuration page of the WiFi router
the second method to hack WiFi which is a little bit more difficult than the first method is through the router configuration page. You can do this by having physical access to the router and connecting to the LAN network through the router ports. Most of the people doesn’t care much about the password to their router settings so the chances entering the default password and and getting in is really high. The default password is usually ‘Admin’ and few people bother to change it.
What you need to do is to connect your computer with a LAN cable to the router. Open the browser and type down the IP address of the modem (usually 192.168.1.1). Now enter the default password and then you will be able to have access to the router password.
Break wireless network encryption
This is by far the best and the most elaborate method to hack WiFi password. In order to use this method, you will need to use some applications for this purpose. But you need to be extra careful in using such application. There are many apps out on the internet but most of them are either not efficient or they intend to steal your data. For this reason you need to be cautious and use standard applications that are designed by experts.
There are some android applications such as DroidSheep or zANTI which can be installed on an android phone. These applications are able to act as a hack tool and hack WiFi password or Android devices. But they might not work properly on some Android versions or they might be unable to wireless networks with strong password or encryption.
Hack WiFi password with Linux
Linux is an open-source and powerful operating system. different versions of this operating system has been published but ‘Back Track’ and ‘Kali Linux have been used by security experts and hackers as well. In other words, most of the hacks are done with Linux operating system. What you need to know is that breaking algorithms and passwords is illegal so Linux is used to test the security of networks and find weaknesses.
One of the hack tools offered by Linux is the Aircrack tool and its recent version called Aircrack-ng 1.2 is able to hack WEP and WPA-PSK passwords. But it requires coding and spending so much time and patience. So, the best way to hack WiFi password is through the standard method of doing it. But as I said earlier, there apps that allow you to hack WiFi. However, you need to be extra careful in using them.
