How to Hack WiFi

I did this once.

It’ll shock you how easy it actually is.

And, the stuff you can sniff just on your own network.

My guess is… once you do this, you’ll never connect to public WiFi again. It’s just way too easy to sniff out important data with Wireshark or Kali. Although, it is an easy way to keep an eye on your kids’ browsing. 😉

When I did it, I was able to sniff every message I sent via my messenger app.

Had I been evil… I could have sniffed all the messages being sent via messenger apps on the hotel or Starbucks WiFi. Or, sucked up a whole bunch of usernames and passwords.

It was that easy.

What’s funny… I showed a guy I worked with at the time what I was able to do and he kind of freaked out.

He went around telling everyone that I could hack their stuff and suddenly everybody started asking about it.

It actually helped my reputation in my unit. They were all in awe… even though, once you learn how to do this you’ll see how silly them thinking that was.

But hey, I took it. Kept them from jacking with me too much. 🙂

Of course, I was hacking WEP… which was stupid insecure.

Just downloaded Wireshark, flooded the router with a bunch of packets and had a capture program that gave a “best guess” on what the passkey was.

And, it was right.

Once, that was done… you can use Wireshark to sniff all the packets on the network. And, filter the packets to find the programs, websites, etc you’re looking for.

It’s stupid simple.

(Which is part of why https-everywhere is a good thing.)

Anyway, I learned it for the Army.

Because it’s a critical part of being a developer.

The only way to truly have the right mindset to defeat hackers is to go inside their world and do some “ethical hacking” yourself. No, don’t go hacking your neighbors. That’s illegal and immoral.

But, you can hack yourself.

Or, someone who will let you try to hack their stuff.

And, when you do… your mind will be blown.

Or… this could be your career. Maybe, you do it and realize you love this stuff and you become an ethical hacker full-time. The security segment of the tech industry is a big and important segment.

Tons of job opportunities… and the pay ain’t too shabby.

Anyway, this stuff is fun, eye-opening and highly valuable.

Learn it.

Which you can do here.

You’ll learn how to hack WiFi, do penetration testing, hack websites, social engineering and all the necessary tools an ethical hacker needs in his tool belt. And, I got you a sweet 75% d-count on it.

But, again… only for ethical purposes.

Anyway, go here.

John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.

Lewis Howes

John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.

Bradley Smith

John and I have worked together on numerous projects. John is very quick and efficient and was a pleasure to work with.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!
