We’ll show you how to decode passwords of Wi-Fi networks, with a mobile or Android tablet, either because you’ve forgotten yours, you want to make sure the network you are using is secure or for other reasons. That being said, we want to warn you at OneHowTo.com that to decode Wi-Fi passwords is a crime and we don’t recommend doing so. In the following article, we’ll explain the process, step by step and you’ll see how it’s quite easy.
Steps to follow:
The first thing we need to do to decode a wifi password on Android is to download Router Keygen (Android) using this link. Remember to check the box that says “Allow app installs from unknown sources” or the system will not let you do it.
Once it’s finished downloading, open the APK file and install it on your Android device, whether a smartphone or tablet.
Open the application and choose one of the following: using a dictionary (default), using an existing internet connection, (a bit slower than using a dictionary) or you can choose “Native Calculation” (this is the slowest option but it’s very efficient). Choose the one you prefer and continue.
Other options for decoding Wi-Fi passwords, using Android mobiles, is to download one of the following applications on Google Play:
- Wi-Fi Unlocker: This is a network security tool to find vulnerabilities in your system. Wi-Fi Password Breaker will tell you which nearby Wi-Fi passwords can be easily decoded.
- WifiPassword: It supports the following networks: WLAN_XXFF, JAZZTEL_XXFF, WLAN_6X, YaCom_6X, Megared-XXFF, AXTEL-XXFF, InterCable6X, IntercableXXFF, INFINITUM6X, INFINITUMXXFF, MAXCOMXXFF
- WiFi & Router Password finder: This app is good if you haven’t actually got a connection at that moment as it can work offline. It is also one of the most efficient as it can locate up to 1200 WiFi routers.
- WiFi Password Breaker: This last option is the simplest and the fastest if you want to connect immediately to a router.
