How to Hack Wifi Password?

Hacking into a Wi-Fi network is not an easy task. It requires the hacker to have some familiarity with well-known hacking tools, such as the Kali Linux, Aircrack-ng etc. It’s a lengthy and tiresome process and isn’t worth getting into if you’re looking to break into your neighbors’ router networks. In this guide, however, we would mainly discuss the simple ways of hacking into a WiFi network while breezing through the more complicated ones.

NOTE: In order for the simple steps to work you need to have the access to the Wi-Fi network. You could just ask your neighbor for the password and then keep on resetting it periodically so that they don’t get a hint of your mischief.

  • After connecting to the network open up the windows command prompt by right clicking on it and selecting Run as administrator. After the command prompt opens up type in the following command:

    netshwlan show profile

  • You will be presented with a list of all the Wi-Fi networks that were saved on your device. Select the one whose password you want to reset and type the following command:

    netshwlan show profile name=”XXXXXXXXXXX” key=clear (for Windows)

    security find-generic-password –wa XXXXXXXXX (for MAC)

    You would only need the quotes if the network name has spaces in between them. Otherwise, don’t use the quotes.

  • You will be presented with a new set of information and under the Security Settings, look for the line Key Content. The words or numbers displayed over there is the Wi-Fi key or password. You can use it to reset the router or change its settings however you like.

Step 2: Resetting The Router

This is the betting process to consider if the router belongs to you only. This isn’t a feat that can be pulled with the neighbor's router.

  • At the back of your router, you will find a small button the size of a little dot. Press and hold it for 4 to 5 seconds. Your router will be reset and the previous password will be deleted.
  • If you want to go into the router settings, visit the website and you will get the default login ID to your desired router.

Step 3: Hacking The Router Network

This is where things get a bit complicated and as a disclaimer let me tell you that there aren’t any simple ways to hack your way into someone else’s router. The basic steps involve getting some sort of information and getting access to their WiFi network and make changes once you’re into the system. Hacking means breaking into the system without the knowledge of the owner that you are prying.​​​​

There are two known ways of prying into one's network:​​​​

  • Creating an evil twin and tricking the user to input their passwords and login details into a proxy router rather than their own. They will think that they are inputting the passwords in their computer, but it is actually the evil twin in which the information is getting dumped.
  • Cracking the code with third party software, with the help of external Wi-Fi adapters and packet injections. This is complicated stuff and requires some insight before proceeding.

Wrapping up: Hacking WiFi password with the prior knowledge of the owner of the router is a crime. Only hacking for serving a greater purpose is considered legal. Don't pry into other's network for anything other than fun.
