Wifi Access

Post by Amphoras » Mon Oct 17, 2011 10:40 am

It would be nice to see an app that could give you the password for a wifi access point. Would be useful for when you forget the password, or someone changes it and forgets to tell you. It would also tie in nicely with your other apps as they both require being on a wifi network to work.

Cracking WPA/WPA2 networks is not feasible on android. WEP networks are rare now and still this would take a lot time and battery and wouldn't be portable (requires specific driver for NIC)

Fair enough, just wondered if it was possible.

they have an android app thats as close as it gets (along with other ones like it) that shows default passwords for wifi points depending on the brand.

I have a better solution

just ask the owner the password

im sure he will tell you because your the first one he had encountered on their password
