Wi-Fi security is essential and has become stronger over the years. But hackers still find different ways to hack Wi-Fi and steal data of the devices connected to it. It is not just the public Wi-Fi that you should be aware of, but even your own. If a hacker gets access to your Wi-Fi then they can recover your bank account details, social media passwords, and many more important passwords.
So, how do hackers get access to your Wi-Fi and how do they get to check your social media passwords? Read further to know.
Getting Access To Wi-Fi
There are different W-Fi securities now in use, such as WEP, WPA or WPA2, Mac Address Filtering, Hidden Network, and many more. These securities have made hacking difficult, but still have loopholes through which your Wi-Fi can get hacked. Out of all these, WPA and WPA2 are the strongest and most difficult to crack. But even that can be cracked through Dictionary Attack (Word List Attack) or Fluxion attack.
Word List Attack
Word List Attack is based on probability, where the hacker will try different passwords based on their knowledge about you and crack your passwords. It is generally done by hackers who are starting and don’t have much idea about Wi-Fi hacking.
On the other hand, the Fluxion attack is the most successful form of hacking. Here, Man in the Middle Attack is used to cut the wifi connection and asks the victim to add their password for connecting to the Wi-Fi again. A very subtle way of asking for the Wi-Fi password.
Getting Access To Your Social Media Passwords
Now, let’s be honest, we all need our social media accounts to stay in touch with everyone. Sometimes, we share some personal and sensitive information with our friends and family through our account too. Imagine the abundance of material that your hacker will get if they find out your social media password.
