Hacking WiFi Password means free internet.

If you want to hack someone WiFi password, this post is the perfect guide for you.

No matter do you want to hack school, office, college or your neighbor wifi network.

how to hack wifi

I always prefer Kali Linux operating system for hacking. Kali has all preinstalled tools that are needed in wifi hacking like aircrack-ng (best software to crack a wifi). New tools like Fluxion will work only on Linux.

No doubt some hacking software are available for window os and android os but can’t compare these with kali.

Ok, no more words in our society there are mainly five types of wifi security available.

  1. WEP Security
  2. WPA Security OR WPA2 Security
  3. MAC ADDRESS Filtering
  4.  HIDDEN Network
  5. WPA2 (WPS available)
  6. OPEN Network (without password)

Can android  Hack Wifi

ok, read my words very carefully. Android can hack only WPS WiFI security. This is the brutal truth. If you find a tutorial on how to hack WPA with Android believe me it is fake.  you will waste your Time.

But Innovation is the main thing. Maybe some people are working on it.

what is the problem with android?

Problem with android is that wireless card does not support monitor mode. Monitor mode is very important to hack wifi network. You can’t hack WPA without monitor mode.

Bottom Line: Don’t waste your Time.

How actually Hackers Hack Wifi password

Here I have explained the working of all mention hacking of all securities one by one

  • WEP SECURITY

 WEP stands for Wired Equivalent Privacy. This is the first security discovered of Wi-Fi invented in 1999 and crack within the year.how to hack wifi password

It is very easy to crack. Generally, people do not understand the working of hacking WEP wifi but able hack it. There is an initialization vector send over all the network if you capture Initialization vector you crack WEP password.

I know it sounds unfamiliar but you did not need to understand the whole work. Aircrack-ng will do magic for you.

You can crack it within 20-30 minutes. No matter how strong password is used by your victim.

Software to you need aircrack Not only WEP using aircrack you can also hack other wifi passwords like WPA, WPA2A. Aircrack is available for both Window and Linux.

aircrack-ng to crack window password

How to hack in the window:  Good news for window user is that you do not need to run commands. Its interface is GUI (graphical user interface) 🙂

The bad news is that it will take 4-9 hours 🙁 . Check here full process from installation to Hacking. No matter which window copy you are using 7,8,8.1 or 10.

Hack in Linux: No matter which Linux distribution you are using you need only one tool again aircrack. Find out here how to install aircrack-ng any Distribution.

After installing, this there are some simple commands. If you are using Kali on the virtual box, you need to buy a wireless adapter. Here Click here to know cracking process

Protection

Don’t use WEP security use any other like WPA. you can change security from router configuration.

  • WPA SECURITY OR WPA2 SECURITY

When WEP become easy to crack then WPA (Wi-Fi protected access) is discovered. It has two formats WPA and wpa2 (this is advance). WPA is secure as compare to WEP. But there are chances that you cant hack it.wpa security type

WEP algorithm is weak but WPA algorithm is strong enough. But still, you can hack using the following 2 techniques.

  1. Word List Attack
  2. Fluxion. (Best way)

Word List Attack: This is the most used method to hack WPA. In this, the hacker creates a wordlist or Dictionary with the help software like crunch. You just have to give some instructions to crunch how to create wordlist like words max length, minimum length character you want to include etc.

After making wordlist, you need software that will try these words as a password.  Aircrack can try 900 words/second or more depending on your system configuration. If your password is your name+anything like a digit, then it is easy to crack.

Fluxion attack:
This is my favorite one. In this hacker show WiFi user something like this. When the user enters the correct password his connection established again.

If the user enters the wrong password then he/she will not able to use wifi network until he did not use the correct password.fluxion wifi hacking password forum for victim

Here is the tutorial using word list attack and Fluxion

  • MAC ADDRESS FILTERING

In this only allowed devices are able to connect the network. You can view the WiFi network and try to connect to the network.

Every device has own identity like we have our name same way devices has Mac address.

Every device has a unique mac address. With the help of mac address admin allow only his device to connect the WiFi. All other devices are unable to connect.

You can’t change mac address permanently but you can change it temporarily.

To bypass this security hacker just need to know connected device Mac address and then you can change your device Mac address. Then the system allows you to connect to the wifi network.

Kali will automatically find all connected device to a particular network. After finding it you can change your mac address using macchanger.

Window Tutorial: If you are window user sorry you have to know mac address of allowed device manually mean I don’t know how you will find mac address. I will suggest you run Kali Linux. Anyway once you find mac address then you can change your mac here is tutorial

Linux Tutorial: Linux is always preferred for hacking. If you are not running Kali Linux install aircrack-ng first (search on google). After installation follow this process 

Android tutorial: If you are an android user then you have to find mac address like window user. You have to root your phone. After rooting you can change mac address using WiFi mac changer app

How to protect
  1. Reduce your signal.
  2. Apply any other security with Mac address filtration.
  • Hidden network

 As clear from this name it is hidden nobody can’t see it or connect it after turning on your wifi you have to enter network name manually.hack hidden wifi

In windows os then there is hidden wifi network available then os will show you a symbol of the hidden network. If you try to connect to the network then it will ask you wifi network name.

Linux Tutorial: How to Find a Hidden WiFi Network within 5 minutes

Window tutorial: finding a hidden network name is easy as on Windows as compared to WPA security. Here are eight best wifi scanner.

Protection
  1. Reduce your wifi network signal.
  2. Apply any other security with hidden wifi.
  • WPS enabled

 WPS stands for wireless protected Setup but it will insecure your network. it is also known as WPA-PSK. In this, there is 8 digit pin you can use this pin as a password.

The router has 8 digit PIN that you need to enter while connecting, the router checks the first four-digit separately and lasts four digits separately which make it very easy to crack by brute force attack.

WPS Wi-Fi can be hacked only in 40 minutes using pixie dust with Reaver.

Linux tutorial: you need to type some commands for this.  As you know Linux is best for any type of hacking. WPA-PSK pin code can by got by aircrack-ng software no need to install in kali and backtrack. This post will help you to know how to hack WPA-PSK (include screenshots).

Window user: you can crack this within 5 minutes or less. Install wincap and jumpStart in your window [10,8, 8.1 etc] and see this video to bypass this step by step.

Android tutorial: WPS Connect is the only app which can help you to bypass this. It is freely available in google play store but makes sure that your Android version is at least 5.0 mean Lollipop and phone is rooted.

How to protect
  1. Don’t enable WPS
  • OPEN Wi-Fi

 Are thinking what is need of hacking open Wi-FiOpen network hacking means control full network. Yes, you are right that our college network. To control full Wi-Fi hacker need to hack the router.

Every router has the default username and password, and in today’s world more than 90% router has their default password and if password is changed then a hacker can use brute force attack, word list attack, Man in the middle attack or keylogger to hack the router.

It is pre-installed in Kali or parrot OS. It has paid and free version. Off course, Kali has a free version. Not only in Kali you can install it in the window too. Metasploit is also integrated
