Many people asked me how to use someone’s Wi-Fi password so they can use the internet for free. There are many forms and software that promise to do the work for you, but in reality they are a total waste of time. Today I will tell you how you can find any Wi-Fi internet password using the Android application. Not long ago you need to have a desktop computer with software that will do the work for you, but the technology has grown so much that you can do it only with your smartphone. Finding the password of another person’s router is not a good option and it is also illegal. So, this method is described only for educational purposes.
How to find wifi Password with Android
First, you need a rooted device (smartphone or tablet) with the Broadcom bcm4329 or bcm4330 wireless chipset. Cyanogen ROM will also be perfect for this project. Even so, if you are not sure about which device is perfect for this project, here are the few names.
- Nexus 7
- Galaxy S1 to S7
- Galaxy y
- Nexus One
- Desire HD
Download and Install BCMON
To find the wireless PIN, you must enable the monitoring mode on the Broadcom chipset. For this you need the BCmon APK file that you can download from the mention of the link here.
Now is the time to install this application, but by default your Android device will not allow this installation, so you must enable installation from unknown sources in the security settings of your phone.
Run the bcmon application and, sometimes, you can also install the firmware and tools. Simply enable the monitoring mode and you should run stable on your device. If not, your device is not compatible.
Run Bcmon Terminal
Now, this is the most terrifying part of this project because it will open a terminal or a command prompt like Linux. Here you need to execute some commands like
and press the enter button.
An Airdump application will load and must return to the main terminal again. Here again write
command and hit enter.
Choose Access Point/Router
Now is the time to have fun because you are very close to your success. The only drawback is that all routers can only find WEP encryption access points, so if you want to find the password for WPA2 routers before reading the second method, mention below.
You can see the MAC address and the channel next to all the routers, so write it on paper. Now start scanning the channel to get information. Remember that it will take hours so relax and get a cup of coffee.
After this type
command airodump-ng -c channel# --bssid MAC address -w output ath0
and press enter. The Airodump scan will start automatically, so leave your phone plugged in while doing it.
You need to change the MAC address and the channel number with which you wrote on the paper before. Now continue scanning the router for at least 30,000-40,000 packages.
Once you have enough data, it’s time to find the password. Execute the command
and press enter.
Copy the Hexadecimal Password
After finding a password for your desired network, make sure that the probability is 100% in the application, otherwise, it may not work for you. The key will be in the form of decimal hexadecimal like 75: 03: 17: 24: 74 and all you have to do is delete the colon “:” between this phrase and this is the password of desire for you.
Method for WPA2/WPS Routers
Again, the process is the same for WPA2 / WPS routers, as if you need a Broadcom bcm4329 rooted device or a bcm4330 wireless chipset. Download and install the BCmon APK file from this link and install it.
Install Reaver APK File
Now download the Reaver APK file from this link and install it. Start this apk file from the drawer of the application and press confirm that you are not using it for illegal purposes. Now it will search all the routers near you. After scanning, simply select your desired router and, at times, you will be asked to verify the Monitor Mode.
Check Automatic Advanced Settings
Now verify your configuration by checking the Advanced automatic configuration checkbox. In many cases, you will not need to change any settings.
Start the Process
It’s time to have fun because after touching the “Start attack” button, the process will begin. Finding a password for WPA2 / WPS routers is not an easy thing to do, and it can take hours or even days to complete your work.
