In the last few years, almost 60% of families have resorted to Wi-Fi systems for internet access in their homes. Offices, restaurants, hotels, airports, schools and colleges, and many other public places also have their own Wi-Fi hotspots in place for their customers/students/employees.
If you’ve already used up your daily mobile data, we understand that it can be quite frustrating. For situations like this, many apps have been developed using which you can connect to the Wi-Fi of your neighbors without the password. However, these apps have no certainty of working, and we’ll suggest you try them first before relying on them.
The two apps are WPS WPA Tester and WIFI WPS Connect. For your convenience, we’ll also talk you through the working of these apps. To know all there’s to know about how to connect to WiFi hotspot without a password, stick with us till the end of today’s blog.
Can You Connect to WiFi Hotspot Without Password?
If you’re a shy person who doesn’t like to ask for the hotspot password in restaurants, we totally understand. Most people like to have limited interactions in public places or simply don’t have the time for it. This is why many restaurants and hotels have come up with creative ways to help these people, like printing the Wi-Fi password on their napkins.
Just like all the other times, we’ve brought the best/most efficient solution out there for you. All you’ll need to do is install either one of the two apps we’ll talk about on your smartphone and operate them as per the instructions given. However, we aren’t encouraging you to hack into someone’s hotspot illegally or anything of that kind.
These apps have been approved by the Play Store, which is why you can access them in the first place.
Note: These apps have no guarantee of working for a couple of reasons. We’ll talk more about them later in the blog.
How to Connect to WiFi Hotspot Without Password
1. WPS WPA Tester
WPS WPA Tester was originally developed to check the strength of a home Wi-Fi. It was made to be used by people who wanted to see how strong their Wi-Fi was and how easy it’d be for other people to hack into it. Let’s discuss how apps like this work.
In layman’s terms, this app basically selects a Wi-Fi network in its vicinity. It then runs the millions of possible combinations for the password. This takes 4-5 minutes at the most, after which the device is connected to that network. This was thought of as a smart way to check their own hotspot’s strength.
However, people soon realized that this app could also be used to hack into other Wi-Fi networks in their vicinity. And that’s when the main purpose of the WPS WPA Tester shifted from checking the strength of a Wi-Fi network to hacking into one.
Now, we’ll walk you through the process of operating the WPS WPA Tester app:
Step 1: Install and open the app on your smartphone. The app will automatically perform a rundown of all available Wi-Fi networks around you.
After that, all those networks will be displayed to you in a list. Choose the network that you want to connect to.
Step 2: When the app gives you the option, choose the no-root method over the root method unless you want your device to be rooted.
You’ll get a number of alternative pins as the password. Choose any one of these, and tap on Interface. If it doesn’t connect after a few minutes, go back and choose a different pin.
There you go! Now you know exactly how you can connect to Wi-Fi without the password.
2. WIFI WPS Connect
WIFI WPS Connect is another app that lets you connect to the Wi-Fi networks around your area without a password. The basic functioning of this app is the same as the WPS WPA Tester, so we’re not going to go into too much detail about that.
This app is even easier to use than the last one because it was made for the very purpose of hacking into other people’s Wi-Fi networks.
Here are the steps that you’ll have to follow to use this app:
Step 1: Install and open the WIFI WPS Connect app on your smartphone.
Step 2: Tap on the Refresh button to load all the Wi-Fi networks in your area. Next, tap on the hotspot that you want to connect to.
Step 3: On the options menu that appears, click on Connect.
In a few minutes, you’ll be connected to a Wi-Fi network that’s free for you and close to your house. Enjoy!
There are many apps on Play Store/App Store that can give you access to someone else’s protected Wi-Fi network. We’ve talked about the two most efficient apps of the kind: WPS WPA Tester and WIFI WPS Connect. For your convenience, we’ve also walked you through the process of using these apps.
Most Wi-Fi companies nowadays have built firewalls to protect their systems from these apps, but not all. You still have a decent chance of getting in when you try. We’ve also discussed how to connect to an unprotected Wi-Fi network. If our blog has helped you in any way, don’t forget to tell us all about it in the comments section below!
