Hacking Wifi Password Without Rooted Device
This method is very simple, it doesn’t take a lot of time and above all, you don’t have to root your device. Many people are against rooting as it has some drawbacks. Some of them are that it voids the phone’s warranty, it involves the risk of “bricking” (called so because after bricking, your mobile is as useful as a brick or even worse as it can’t be used to build houses), it degrades the overall performance of your device and finally, there is a risk of virus. Without further ado, let’s look at how to hack a wifi password without rooting.
Step 1 :
Go to playstore and download “wps-wpa tester” and run it after installation.
Step 2 :
Click the circle shaped refresh button until the wifi connections appear.
Step 3 :
Select the wifi connections that are green in color.
In the first option, there will be “automatic pin testing”, select that.
(Make sure that the settings is on “no root” and “new method”)
Wait for 5 minutes, you can come out of the app but don’t remove it from the background.
Soon, a message saying “success!” will pop up if it was successful and you will be connected to the wifi.
You can now delete the app if you want, your wifi will remain connected.
Hacking Wifi Password With Rooted Device
With a rooted device you can access to wifi with WPA2 WPS routers and WEP routers. Although rooting has many drawbacks, it doesn’t mean it has no advantages. Some of them are that it allows you to run some special apps which can’t run in a unrooted device, removing pre-installed apps and many more. Let’s have a look at how to hack wifi with a rooted phone.
Hacking Wifi Passwords for WPA2 WPS Routers
Root your device
Download and install “bcmon” app ( helps monitor mode on your broadcom chipest that helps in the PIN Cracking).
Open the app and press the “monitor mode” option.
Download and install “Reaver” app ( helps to crack the WPS Pin to retrieve the WPA2 passphrase).
Launch the app and perform an on-screen confirmation.
Finally, start cracking process by tapping “start attack”. (This could take 2-10 hours.)
This is how you hack wifi of WPA2 WPS routers
Hacking Wifi Passwords for WEP routers:
Do the same till step 3 of hacking for WPA2 WPS routes.
Click the “Run bcmon terminal” option and type “airodump-ng” and enter.
Soon, you will be directed to the prompt command in which you’re to type “airodump-ng wlan0” then tap the Enter button.
Remember the Mac address which will appear.
Start scanning the channel by collecting information from the access point before attempting to crack the password, then type, “airodump-ng -cchannel#–bssidMAC address-w output ath0” and tap enter, then it would start scanning, try scanning till it reaches 20,000 – 30,000 packets.
Return to the terminal, but make sure you’ve reached the suitable number of packets, then type “aircrack-ng output*.cap” and click enter at the terminal.
A message saying “Key found” will pop up and the key will be in hexadecimal. Remove all the dots from the key and that will be the password.
In this way you can hack the wifi by using both rooted as well as unrooted devices.
