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.


Select our wireless interface WLAN). Click on the tab “Scan for access points”. The tool will search for available access points as shown below.



Since we want to hack a WPA enabled wifi network, click on WPA tab. It will show all the available WPA enabled networks.



Click on the wifi network whose password we want to crack( in my case “shunya”). Browse to the dictionary file we want to choose as shown below.



Click on “Wifi attack” tab. The tool will automatically crack the password for you as shown below.



Hope this was helpful. See the video version of this howto.
