Is it really possible to crack a WiFi password?

There are literally tens of thousands of people struggling to crack a WiFi password right in this moment. But is there really a way? Is there a special method, or everyone who says they can hack a wireless connection is a liar? Let's find out!

What you need to know about wifi passwords
First of all, the difficulty of cracking a WiFi password depends on the network's encryption method. There are three well-known encrypting standards: WEP, WPA and WPA2. I won't go in-depth with the technical terms, but the fats is that WEP and WAP passwords are a lot more likely to get hacked rather than a WPA2 one.

How can I hack a wifi password?
Now, what about the actual password cracking method? Well, there isn't one, but that doesn't mean it's impossible to crack WiFi networks. No. In fact, it all depends on the case. If you know the network's owner (let's say he's a neighbor or something along those lines), then you can directly discuss with him and, if you can't convince him to give you the WiFI Password straight away, then maybe you can talk him into it or into giving you some clues. Believe me, it's not that complicated!

Where to find a working wifi hack
But let's move on to the actual WiFi password hacking. Since we live in 2013, there must be some kind of software to help us crack a wifi pass, right? Well, yes and no. To be honest, there are only a few people who actually own a working wifi password hack. Some of them are well-known software developers, some of them just knew where to look for it. I started looking for this kind of programs about a month ago and, well, I actually found a working version of the hack.
The WiFi Password Hack (updated 2013) I've found worked excellent with WPA and WEP encrypted passwords and cracks them in under a minute, but it does have some hiccups with WPA-2. However, it eventually handles WPA2 as well, after a few tries. For example, I was once in an airport, in desperate need to check my e-mail (important business stuff). The only WiFi networks I could find were WPA-2 password-protected, so I fired up the wifi hack on my smartphone (yes, it is compatible with Android too) and, voila! After only two tries it cracked a nearby network.

Are there other ways of cracking a pass?
But enough of that. Beside this automated hack, there are also other means by which you can crack a wireless password. A simple Google search reveals lots of methods, of which I really can't speak in this article because it would take me days.

Nevertheless, the existence of a WiFi password hacking program is no longer a myth. It has become a fact.
