How To: Hack Wi-Fi Using Wifite in Kali

Hack Wi-Fi Using Wifite in Kali

Welcome, my aspiring hackers!

In this tutorial I'm gonna be showing you how to hack Wi-Fi using the wps compatibility of a router, in , of course, Kali.

  1. First, fire up Kali.
  2. Then, open up a terminal and type wifite.
  3. Wait for a minute, and watch closely as the BSSIDs begin to appear.
  4. See if the router you wanna hack has yes in WPS Compatibility. If so, proceed to the next step.
  5. Hit Ctrl+C to stop wifite.
  6. Now type in the number of the router, say, 6 or 9, and hit enter.
  7. It should start cracking the router's password by using the vulnerability in the wps compatibility of the router.
  8. Once its finished, the password should be displayed.

Sorry for the "no picture" thing. This is my first tutorial. '"But you gave a picture!" Shut up!

Now hit that Kudos button if ya liked the post!


honestly, this post lacks detail. but still a nice intro to those who never heard of Wifite.

try including more detail in your posts next time (for example, what Wifite is exactly, how it differs from say, bully or reaver, etc...)

still worth a Kudos tho


Wifite it's just a Python script that automates many steps, but it uses Reaver for the WPS attack.

I've made a post on WPS cracking with Wifite, and one for WPA/WPA2 as well.

i know what wifite is, i was just trying to give constructive criticism to the creator in case he wants to make another how-to.


This post was for newbies.

If it was for newbies, you should explain better.

Thanks, Phoenix750. Will try to make it more detailed next time. This was for NoobS, though.

Thanks for the time. We have a better Wifite Tutorial from Kitten like 2 weeks old. No disrespect of course.

Please make us another one, we would love to read it.

Sure, man. I'm sorry.
