Hello everybody. In a previous howto, we saw WPA/WPA2 password cracking using aircrack, a tool inbuilt in Kali Linux. But that needed lot of commands to be typed. So today we are going to see how to crack WPA/WPA2 passwords using a GUI tool also inbuilt in Kali Linux, Fern Wifi cracker. Open the tool, Fern Wifi cracker.
