If you want to enhance your knowledge and want to know the tricks and ways to hack the Wi-Fi password using Android device, then this article will help you. Lots of people are asking about how to hack Wi-Fi passwords using Android and whether it is possible or not. The straightforward answer is "yes" you can hack Wi-Fi passwords in Android devices using some tricks and tools (apps).
Before diving into our main topic about how to hack Wi-Fi passwords in Android phones, we first discuss some of the basic information about the type of Wi-Fi password security.
Types of Wi-Fi Password Security
There are primarily three different types of Wi-Fi password securities. These Wi-Fi securities are as follows:
- Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP).
- Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA).
- Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS).
Method 1: Hacking Wi-Fi Password in Android using WIFI WPS WPA TESTER (without Rooting)
Wi-Fi WPS WPA TESTER is a popular Android app that is widely used for hacking Wi-Fi passwords. Wi-Fi WPS TESTER app hacks only those routers that connect with WPS router with limited features. Hacking Wi-Fi using this app is so easy and only requires follows few steps. The best part of this application is that you can use it without rooting your Android phone. You can also use this app on a rooted Android phone with some extra features.
Using this Android app, you can easily check the wireless security and strength of your router. If the router is not secure, then the WIFI WPS WPA TESTER app easily bypasses the Wi-Fi password on your Android phone. After skipping the password, it connects the Android phone with the router without providing a password.
The Wi-Fi WPS WPA TESTER hacking apps work on both rooted and non rooted Android phones. Below are the steps to hack Wi-Fi password on Android without rooting.
- Download and install the WIFI WPS WPA TESTER app from Play Store.
- Enable the Wi-Fi settings on your Android phone.
- Launch the app and search for the Wi-Fi networks nearby you.
- Select one of the networks from the result and start hacking by tap.
- You can input its key manually.
- The app checks the Wi-Fi security, and it tries different combinations of words and numbers to crack the Wi-Fi password. The app finds the network code in a short time and connects your phone automatically.
- Download and install the AndroDumper app on your Android phone.
- Turn on the Wi-Fi settings on your Android device.
- Launch the AndroDumper app and click on the refresh button present at the top of the screen to search and get nearby Wi-Fi networks.
- Choose the network you wish to hack and connect and tap on it.
- Now the app will try to connect with your chosen network with every possible combination of alphabets and number passwords. If the selected network has a weak Wi-Fi password, then this app possibly hacks it.
Method 3: Hacking Wi-Fi password in Android having WPA2 WPS Router (Root device)
In this method of hacking Wi-Fi passwords in Android, we will use the Bcmon and Reaver Android app. At first, you need a root Android phone if you don't have tried to root your device. Ensure that your root Android phone contains Broadcom bcm4329 or bcm4330 chipsets as present in Samsung Galaxy S1/S2, HTC Desire HD, Nexus 7, Nexus 1, etc.
- Download and install the BCmon app APK file on your Android phone. This app helps you to monitor your Broadcom chipset and cracking PIN.
- Now, download and install the Reaver Android app that figure out and cracking the WPS Wi-Fi network password.
- After the app installation, launch the BCmon app and tap on the "monitor mode" option.
- Again launch the Reaver app and confirm on the screen that you are not using it for any illegal activity. Tap on the APN or access point you want to crack and continue Wi-Fi password. Sometimes you need to verify your monitor mode to continue, and you can do this by reopening the BCmon app again.
- Go to settings in the Reaver app and checked to mark "Automatic Advanced setting" box.
- Finally, start your Wi-Fi cracking process by clicking on the start attack; in this last step, cracking the WPS Wi-Fi security may take 2-10 hours to succeed.
Method 4: Hacking Wi-Fi password in Android using Wi-Fi WPS Connect app (Root device)
Using the Wi-Fi WPS Connect app you can hack Wi-Fi password on Android. The app works on both rooted and non-rooted (Lollipop and above) phones. However, it is mainly preferred for the rooted device because of the database information.
If you found any Wi-Fi connection on your Android device having WPS security, you can easily connect with it without providing any password. The WPS Connect app bypasses WPS Wi-Fi security and connects with Wi-Fi without entering any password.
Below are the steps to hack Wi-Fi password and connect your Android phone using this app:
- Download and install the Wi-Fi WPS Connect app on your Android phone.
- Enable the Wi-Fi settings of your phone.
- Launch the WPS Connect app and tap on the scan button to scan all nearby Wi-Fi networks.
- It takes few times to display all nearby Wi-Fi networks, including their details (such as password security types, network types, signal strength, etc.).
- Choose a Wi-Fi network and tap on it you wish to hack. A pop-up screen appears with a pre-defined list of keys (PIN).
- Tap on the key to start your hacking process.
- The app tries several times to hack Wi-Fi with default keys and the most widely used Wi-Fi keys.
- Wait for few minutes, and the Wi-Fi password will be hacked successfully.
Method 5: Hacking Wi-Fi password in Android using WPSAPP
WPSAPP is an all-in-one app that allows you to connect nearby Wi-Fi networks using an 8-digit PIN. The WPSAPP app makes easier and convenient to hack Wi-Fi password in both rooted and non-rooted Android phones. It applies several algorithms for generating random pins as well as some default pins. Using this app, you can hack any WEP Wi-Fi network without any difficulties.
When you scan for the networks, they appear with the red cross, question marks, and green tick marks. The red cross networks are secure, and their password is unknown. The networks showing with question marks have WPS protocol enabled, their pin is unknown, and the app allows testing them with a most common pin. Finally, the green ticks networks are WPS protocol enabled and their password known, and they can be connected.
Below we have mentioned the steps to hack Wi-Fi passwords on Android using this app.
- Download and install the WPSAPP app on your Android phone.
- Now, open the app and search for the nearby Wi-Fi networks for you.
- Click on the enabled WEP network you want to connect.
- Click on the "CONNECT WITH PIN" button, and after few seconds, the app displays your network password.

Phones users in Delhi-NCR who lose their handsets will now have some respite, with the government launching a portal that will enable blocking and tracing of stolen or lost mobile phones. The initiative was launched in Mumbai in September this year and has been rolled out for Delhi-NCR now. It will be extended to other parts of the country in 2020.
The launch of the portal, www.ceir.gov.in, for Delhi-NCR subscribers will facilitate requests for blocking of stolen or lost mobile phones by customers, blocking of such mobile phones across various mobile networks, allowing services to other existing customers having mobile phones with the same International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number, sharing of traceability data with police authorities, as well as unblocking of recovered phones.
The project is backed by the Central Equipment Identity Register (CEIR) system, which was undertaken by the telecom department for addressing security, theft and other concerns including reprogramming of mobile handsets.
Launching the initiative, Telecom Minister
- Ravi Shankar Prasad
said safety and security of phones are crucial given the country's technological strides and digital prowess.
"While we make optimum use of technology for development, there are equally smart criminals who abuse technology for their own ends," Prasad said. "
The latest initiative is expected to benefit 5 crore mobile subscribers in Delhi and adjoining areas.
"Delhi telecom subscribers whose phones get stolen or those who lose their phones can log into the web portal from today... they can go to the portal and register their complaint, along with which they will also have to upload the police complaint and their own ID proof. Based on this, the lost mobile will be blocked. Also if someone uses it, the same can be traced based on the tower signals so the police can also recover the device," Telecom Secretary Anshu Prakash told reporters. "
Explaining this further, Prakash said the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) is the unique identity of mobile phone devices.
IMEI number is programmable and miscreants and criminals reprogramme the 15-digit unique number, which results in the cloning of IMEI. The result is multiple phone devices, at times even hundreds of numbers, with the same IMEI number.
If such IMEI is blocked, a large number of mobile phones stand the risk of being blocked (as they are handsets with the same IMEI number) causing inconvenience to genuine customers. The software that has been developed now allows an individual phone to be blocked even if it is on a cloned IMEI number.
Moreover, because of the centralized nature of the register or database, all the operators can block the particular stolen or lost device across the country even though the phone is being serviced by one particular operator.
"This will also reduce the market for stolen phones," Prakash added.
Asked about the progress of the initiative in Mumbai, where it had been announced a few months back, Prakash said as many as 500-600 complaints were logged in Mumbai. "In 50 percent of the cases in Mumbai, traceability information has been handed over to the police. Also remember, much depends on whether the phone is being used after it has been stolen... If someone does not use it, it cannot be traced, but it can certainly be blocked. They won't be able to sell it," he said.
Michael Albert Focia is a 50-year-old from Montgomery, Alabama. He’s sitting in prison for selling firearms without a license and shipping them illegally. Focia used the dark web to sell firearms to people in other states and countries.
“Modern criminals often think that the secrecy provided by the internet gives them freedom to violate the law,” U.S. Attorney Gorge Beck said.
Michael Andrew Ryan, a.k.a. “Gunrunner,” was a 35-year old man from Manhattan, Kansas. Ryan was busted for illegally exporting semi-automatic rifles and handguns to Scotland, Ireland, England and Australia. Ryan removed the serial numbers to make them harder to trace.
“The fact that international firearms trafficking has reached Kansas shows the power of the Internet,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall.
Both Focia and Ryan were using a website called “Black Market Reloaded.”
GAO and ATF Stings
When you think of the Government Accountability Office (GAO), it conjures up images of budgets, reports, and bean counters. It turns out, though, that some of its investigations involve undercover work and guns.
At the direction of Congress and working with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF), the GAO set out to gather information on purchasing firearms on the internet. “The relative anonymity of the Internet makes it an ideal means for prohibited individuals to obtain illegal firearms,” according to the ATF. “The more anonymity employed by a firearms purchaser, the greater the likelihood that the transaction violates federal law.”
The GAO report shows undercover agents were able to buy a fully automatic Uzi submachine gun anonymously without any kind of background check on the dark web. They also bought an AR-15 semi-automatic weapon.
The agents, however, had to work hard at the sting operation. Only two of the 74 attempted transactions were concluded.
72 Attempts To Buy Firearms Were Denied By Sellers
In most of the cases, the potential seller refused to complete the sale. Upon hearing from the undercover agent that they were not legally allowed to own the gun, another third of sellers wouldn’t sell. The agents themselves got scammed by others that took the money and never delivered.
Firearms Can Be Bought For Lower Prices
Public policy organization RAND Europe, a non-profit division of the RAND Corporation, looked at the seedy side of the internet to examine black market arms transactions. The report reveals the overwhelming majority of weapons sold on dark web marketplaces originated in the United States. The study showed that “better performing, more recent firearms (are available) for the same, or lower price than would be available on the street or the black market.”
2017 Study Of Organized Crime
The National Crime Agency in The United Kingdom also acknowledges concerns over firearm sales on the dark web.
“There is increasing evidence that it is an avenue for individual without previous criminal contacts to acquire them,” the 2017 study of organized crime states.
The agency points towards the use of virtual or crypto-currencies like Bitcoin as a way to conduct transactions anonymously and without using conventional financial methods.
Firearms Sales Represent A Small Portion Of Dark Web Sales
Weapons represent just a small portion of transactions on the dark web, according to Nicolas Christin, a researcher at Carnegie Mellon University. He called the use of the dark web for firearms sales as negligible, especially compared to the number of illegal drugs being bought and sold. Christin estimates firearms sales account for less than 3% of sales.
Still, there is a consistent call from lawmakers in the U.S. in other countries to crack down on illegal firearms sales online.
“The volume can be considered sufficiently high to be cause for concern for policy makers and law enforcement agencies,” concluded Giacomo Paoli, one of the authors of the RAND report.
