Hello Rookie Hackers,
Lot of People ask me How to Hack Wifi Password ? So I thought of writing a article on How to Hack Wifi Password ?.As you all know that Wi-Fi was developed in the late 1990s and WEP has a big flaw in it as it can be easily cracked.As a replacement for the WEP now near about all wireless access points are using the Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 with pre-shared key and known as WPA2-PSK.It uses a very strong algorithm AES that is very difficult to crack.But nothing is impossible.
There are some weakness in the WPA2 that it goes through the 4 way handshake so if we can grab the password at the time of authentication then we can attempt to crack the password .To know more about WPA2-PSK you can go here.
In my previous tutorial I showed you Cracking the WEP passwords now I am going to show How to Hack Wifi Password (WPA2-PSK) using aircrack-ng.
Put your wireless adapter in promiscuous mode or monitor mode .This allows the adapter to see all the traffic going through the wireless network.Now open the terminal and type the following command :
After the command the wlan0 will be changed to mon0 in monitor mode.
Now the wireless card has got the capability of seeing the traffic going nearby so we will now capture the traffic using Aircrack-Ng command.
In the upper part of the screen is the APs while in the lower part the clients connected to it.
Now we have to emphasize on one AP and one channel so now open a new terminal and type the following command :-
Now our prime target for cracking is the Belkin because the users who leave the default names on their APs usually don’t spend too much time in securing it.
Now when we have enough IVs to crack then we will attempt to hack wifi password .Now we have the WPA2 file with the encrypted password then we can run the file against the password file of our choice .
we will now attempt to crack the passwords by opening the another terminal :-
This process is very tiring and hectic.The probability of cracking the password is dependent upon the length of the password,Combinations used in the password and the password file you are using .Till now you must have got the answer to your question How to Hack Wifi Password ?
