Hacking WiFi Password means free internet.

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

No matter you want to hack school, office, college or your neighbor 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). The new tool like Fluxion is only working on Linux.

No doubt some software also available for window and android user but can’t compare with kali.

Ok in our society there are mainly five types 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 how to hack WPA with Android believe it is fake. you will waste your Time.

what is the problem with android

Problem with android is that wireless card does not support monitor mode. Monitor mode is very important. 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 working of all mention hacking of all securities one by one


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

It is very easy to crack. People did 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.

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

Software to crack it: aircrack Not only WEP using aircrack you can also hack other wifi passwords like WPA, wpa2a. Aircrack is available for both Window and Linux.

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

Bad news for window user is it will take 4-9 hours 🙁 . Check here full process from installation to Hacking. No matter which window version you are using 7,8,8.1,10.

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

How to protect

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


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 you can hack it.

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

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

Word List Attack: This is the most useful method to hack WPA. In this, the hacker creates a word list with the help software like crunch. That’s it will make word dictionary that containing all word of characters typed by you.

After making word list, 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 password his connection established again. fluxion wifi hacking password forum for victim

Here is the tutorial using word list attack and Fluxion


In this only configured device able to connect the network. Admin change settings in the router.

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

To bypass this security hacker just need to know Mac address of the device that is able to connect, and then you can changes your Mac address means to make it similar to register device Mac address.

Kali will automatically find connected device mac address. On finding mac address you can change your mac address using macchanger.

Window Tutorial: If you are window sorry you have to know mac address of registered device manually mean no software for. Running live Kali Linux is a good choice. Anyway once you know  mac address then you can change your mac here is tutorial

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

Android tutorial: In Android, you have to know mac address. 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 you can’t see it turning on your wifi you have to enter network name manually.hack hidden wifi

In windows os when they detect hidden wifi a symbol of the hidden network while connecting asking network name. On the internet, you can find software and apps available to hack this.

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

How to protect
  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 last four digits separately which become 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 you change the password, then a hacker can use brute force attack, word list attack, Man in the middle attack or keylogger to hack the router.

  1. I have read this over and over again. I have done and tried all of it… I know my wireless adapter is good…But can’t get any of it to work.

  2. As known data is the most important aspect of any internet enabled device. But, when one is on the lookout for wi-fi connection, all one can find is restricted wi-fi. Find more details and discussion regarding this topic at Question Signal which is the best question and answer website.
