WiFi Bruteforcer is an android application that bruteforces WiFi passwords using an android device. It does not require a rooted device and is very fast and reliable. The tool has been developed by Fsecurify.
- Turn on your wifi.
- Open the application and scan networks.
- Select any WEP/WPA2 network and a new screen will open.
- Tap Start to start bruteforcing the password.
- When the password is successfully found, you will get a notification.
How it works:
The app does not try millions of passwords. This would have been too time consuming and this would definitely require rooting the device. What the app does is try 10,000 most commonly used passwords with a few heuristics (trying a passwords same as the SSID name etc). It tries all these passwords and see if one of them ends up in a successful connection. If a passwords does, it shows it you on the screen and connects to the network automatically.
The app is totally virus free and does not require any extra permissions other than network and internet access.
Note: There is a new update available on the github link. Do try it and let me know if it works.
The app is still in beta phase and if there’s any issues to be found, you can report them here on their website
