how to hack WiFi password using airgeddon in Kali Linux
Recently, most “noob” are asking how to hack a wireless network
Perhaps now the best wifi cracker for beginners is airgeddon.
Airgeddon in semi-automatic cycle guides you through all the stages: from the translation of the wireless card in monitor mode, through the choice of target and capture of 4 way handshake to crack passwords WiFi crack.

Installing airgeddon bash script can be performed in any Linux, but the script itself requires other packages (dependence). All of them are already available in distributions like Kali Linux and BlackArch.
When you start the script it will check for all the packages and give you result with the missing packages, still it can work fine if some of them are missing …
it also needs a compatible USB wireless adapter for Kali Linux
For example, in Kali Linux those tow packages were missing
isc-dhcp-server and lighttpd … the script can work fine without them for wifi cracking but some of the function won’t work
Install missing package
apt-get install isc-dhcp-server
apt-get install lighttpd
Let’s imagine that you are in one of these derivatives or you have already installed the necessary packages – it’s really easy,
Users Kali Linux, BlackArch and other similar specialized distributions won’t need to install dependencies from the source – they are already installed on your system, or can be easily installed from the standard repositories,
installation of airgeddon: on Kali Linux :
wget https://github.com/v1s1t0r1sh3r3/airgeddon/archive/master.zip unzip master.zip cd airgeddon-master
Now to run the script:
sudo bash airgeddon.sh
(you will only need sudo command if you are not root)
How to use airgeddon
Instructions to use airgeddon: to hack wifi password
Now we need to select the wireless card, In Kali Linux, it is usually called the wlan0,
- Select another network interface
after you select the network interface you have to put it in monitor mode
As mentioned just above, we need to make our wireless card is in monitor mode, therefore select “2” Put the interface in monitor mode
to crack WiFi, we need to capture the whats called handshake. It is data exchanged between the device to be connected (eg, laptop, mobile phone) to the access point (wireless router). Intercepting these data, it is possible to decipher your wireless network password.
To capture a handshake go to “5”
- Handshake tools menu
again select 5. Capture Handshake
now you will be reminded that you have to select a target network just hit Enter and then Enter
it will start searching for wifi network, to stop the search press Ctrl + C then
Select the target network: by network number
now you will get a list of the available APs
Please note that the access points that marked with asterisks clients – this is the most promising “clients” to capture a handshake. More pay attention to the column ENC. don’t try to crack WEP network with Airgeddon it won’t work.
but choose those types of networks WPA or WPA2.
When select, place the appropriate number and press Enter. now it’s time to get the handshake file by preforming Deauthentication
to do that Simply select the first option, if the handshake is not captured, then select the second option, and so on.
- Deauth aireplay attack
it will start trying to get the handshake file, it needs a few seconds
There will be two new small window, one of which will disappear after a while:
Now look at the window, which did not disappear when you see there WPA handshake:
then you have successfully captured a handshake. In this case, type y and hit enter in the script enter, if the handshake is not captured, then enter n and try again.
now you need to save the handshake file The script will offer to enter a name for the handshake file if you just press the [Enter],
the handshake will be saved with the default name.
Go back to the main menu
Then select: 6 Offline WPA/WPA2 decrypt menu
Then select: 1 (aircrack) Dictionary attack against capture file
the script will remind you that you have already captured a handshake in this session and asks if you want to break it type y and enter.
you will get a message like this :
You already have selected a capture file during this session [/root/winet]
Do you want to use this already selected capture file? [y/n]
it will show a note about the BSSID (the network name that is similar to the MAC address)
And asked if I wanted to use it – again if you are cracking the handshake that you just got in this session then type y and hit enter
Now we need to enter the path to the dictionary
(instead of typing the path, you can drag the file into the script window):
if you don’t have a password dictionary check this post how to get one Password dictionary
after that it will start aircrack-ng to that will try to crack wifi password
it took me 7 minutes to get the wifi password
The script airgeddon it is written in Bash it automated tasks on Linux
The script was the easiest of all, which I have ever worked with. With this script, the most novice Linux user will be able to crack WiFi or become whats so-called ( wifi hacker ) !
still it’s recommended not to always use automated scripts, and to continue to examine manual methods that well improve hacking skills.
