Hey my name is Abdul Rehman and I am Cyber Security Expert. As you know wifi password hacking has become popular search on the free internet. Everyone wants free Internet. But due to the advancement of technology, hacking wifi, and cracking passwords have become a difficult task to do. The reason the newer wifi protocols have become safer and encrypted due to the implementation of WPA/WPA2 (wifi protected access) protocols. They made modern routers more secure and less hackable. Don’t panic all new routers also hack but the process may be different as compare to the old router
How to Hack Wifi Password
I tried all new method to hack wifi password trust me none of them work so don’t waste your time to try those tools or software today I will tell you the best and easy way to hack wifi password in 2019 To Hack Wi-Fi, first, thing you need to do is Download and install kali linux on your computer if you don’t install in your computer you can run kali lunix Live on your computer and second thing you need a wireless card which supports monitor/injection mode. If your wireless card is not able to do this, you need to get an external wireless card which is capable of monitor/injection mode.
Apart from these tools, you need to have a word-list to crack the password from the captured packets. What is word-lists basically it is a list containing the total possible combination of Usernames/Passwords. Wordlist Based Brute forcing – similar to Brute forcing, where you create – all possible combination of characters and save it as a file/database
Before we jump to hacking a wifi password first you need to understand How Wi-Fi works. Wi-Fi transmits signal in the form of packets in air so we need to capture all the packets in air so we use airodump to dump all the packets in air .After that we should see that if anyone is connected to the victim Wi-Fi. If anyone is not connected the Wi-Fi, cracking then it is not possible as we need a WPA handshake. What is Handshake ? Basically handshake is an encrypted data or a package that we collect when we attack on victim wifi. We can capture handshake by sending deauthentication packets to client connected to Wi-Fi. Aircrack cracks the password.
HACK WIFI Password Using Kali Lunix ?
Follow these simple steps and you can easy hack any wifi password
First open your kali lunix terminal. We need to know the name of the wireless adapter connected to your computer because computer has many adapters connected.
Type this command
- In my case, wireless adapter name is wlan0. In your case, it may be different. If you connected to an external wireless card, it may be wlan1or2.
For some wireless cards, it gives error messages to enable monitor mode on wireless cards. For that, you should use this command
airmon-ng check kill.
In this step, you need to enable the monitor mode on your wireless card. The command is as follows:
airmon-ng start wlan0 (interface of wireless card).
Now this command will enable the monitor mode on your wifi card. So while using interface in any terminal or command line use wlan0mon.
Find the router you want to hack. At the end of each string of text, you’ll see a name; find the one belonging to the network you want to hack into.
- Make sure the router is using WPA or WPA2 security. If you see “WPA” or “WPA2” immediately to the left of the network’s name, you can proceed; otherwise, you cannot hack the network.
Note the MAC address and channel number of the router. These pieces of information are to the left of the network’s name:
- MAC address — This is the line of numbers on the far-left side of your router’s line.
- Channel — This is the number (e.g., 0, 1, 2, etc.) directly to the left of the WPA or WPA2 tag.
After selecting your victim monitor your selected network for a handshake. A “handshake” occurs when an item connects to a network (e.g., when your computer connects to a router). Enter the following code, making sure to replace the necessary components of the command with your network’s information:
airodump-ng -c channel --bssid MAC -w /root/Desktop/ wlan0mon
- Replace “channel” with the channel number you found in the last step.
- Replace “MAC” with the MAC address you found in the last step.
- Remember to replace “mon0” with whatever your interface name was.
- Here’s an example address:
airodump-ng -c 3 --bssid 1C:1C:1E:C1:AB:C1 -w /root/Desktop/ wlan0mon
Wait for a handshake to appear. Once you see a line with the tag “WPA handshake:” followed by a MAC address in the upper-right corner of the screen, you can proceed. It take some time to capture the handshake so don’t close attack until you capture the handshake
- If you’re not in a waiting mood, you can force a handshake using a deauth attack before continuing with this part.
After capturing handshake exit airodump-ng, then open the desktop. Press Ctrl+C to quit, then make sure you can see the “.cap” file on your computer’s desktop.
Rename your “.cap” file. While not strictly necessary, this will make it easier to work with later. Enter the following command to change the name, making sure to replace “name” with whatever you want to name the file:
thecomputercity ./-01.cap name.cap
- If your “.cap” file isn’t named “-01.cap”, replace “-01.cap” with whatever your “.cap” file’s name is.
Now it’s time to Convert the “.cap” file into “.hccapx” format. You can do this by using Kali Linux’s converter. Enter the following command, making sure to replace “name” with your file’s name:
cap2hccapx.bin name.cap name.hccapx
- You can also go to https://hashcat.net/cap2hccapx/ and upload the “.cap” file to the converter by clicking Choose File and selecting your file. Once the file is uploaded, click Convert to convert it and then download it back onto your desktop before proceeding.
The next step is you need to install naive-hashcat. This is the service you’ll use to crack the password. Enter the following commands in order:
- If your computer doesn’t have a GPU, you’ll need to use aircrack-ng instead.
sudo git clone https://github.com/brannondorsey/naive-hashcat cd naive-hashcat curl -L -o dicts/rockyou.txt https://github.com/brannondorsey/naive-hashcat/releases/download/data/rockyou.txt
Run naive-hashcat. Once it finishes installing, enter the following command (making sure to replace any instance of “name” with your “.cap” file’s name):
HASH_FILE=name.hccapx POT_FILE=name.pot HASH_TYPE=2500 ./naive-hashcat.sh
Note: To use this method you need to have wordlist compulsory there are many wordlists available in internet you can download them.
Wait for the network password to be cracked. Its take some time may be one hour or less than a mints its depends on your wordlist. Once the password is cracked, its string will be added to the “name.pot” file found in the “naive-hashcat” directory; the word or phrase after the last colon in the string is the password.
