    Hello Se7en Sins community, I need your assistance on finding a way to retrieve my schools WiFi password. I understand the legality of this so there's no need to stress the matter of legal issues to me. I guess you can say I'm curious. If you guys could point out a source or an app already in the Cydia sections that would be most helpful, and if one doesn't exist then... Well darnit. Also I would like to know the odds in getting caught, and if my school would be able to notice me logging into their WiFi, I would assume they could but I'm not 100% sure. I've googled the issue myself and found very little information on it. All the information on the subject was outdated and from untrustworthy random internet sources. Personally there's no other community I trust more then the Se7en Sins community, on finding answers to questions I have with modifying technology. A response will be much appreciated.

    Many Thanks,
    Scott

    I'm rather confused as to what you're asking, if you have the password on your iPhone and you're trying to retrieve it from the phone, you can just make a backup. If you're trying to "hack" their wifi password, it isn't possible with an iPhone, you can do it using a pc and some special software, but most networks aren't vulnerable to the wps bug anymore. That means you would need to brute force it, and that could take days. Not to mention if you got caught you would be expelled and possibly arrested. Just get a Verizon MiFi or tether from your phone, it is legal and much easier

    I was asking if there was a application or package that I could download that would use ninja coding magic and allow me to access the locked WiFi. Last year the whole school had the password and it was extremely convenient for Youtube videos and etc. However they recently changed their password and now its back to the crappy 3G signal because of the thick walls in the school. I've heard of brute forces methods and what not for getting passwords on the computer and such. Kinda hoping someone made a quick "WiFi Password Now" button for the iPhone. Sadly, it doesn't seem that it would be as easy as that. Plus the risk of arrest... Yeah I'll just stick with the 3G. :biggrin: Thanks for the response, at least now I know it's not possible and the question isn't constantly in the back of my mind. Appreciate the response! :smile:

    There are no tweaks that can bypass modern wifi security on iOS anyways.

    Ahh that's to bad, thanks for clarification on the matter guys! Much appreciated, guess I'll just be dealing with the thick walls until graduation! What a depressing realization, the realization that the Youtube videos I'm trying to show my friends will always look like they were recorded on a potato. :frown:

    You could download them first and then show them with this app: http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/posts/6285055/

    Great! Also, you need to be a premium member to use an animated signature on this site, I would change your signature before site staff notices.

    I assume you're not supposed to be using it, so you can't ask a teacher/principal or anything?

    That's probably the case. Like my school, his school's internet probably pulls from a district wide network. If it was just a network for the school, all the students would have the password...or atleast the upperclassmen would...either way this isn't possible on an iPhone.

    Sadly because the entire schools electronics (iPads, Laptops, Macs, iPods, and etc.) are all linked to one network, they are very strict on doing things that will slow down the system. Even things like putting icons on the desktop, so they refuse to release the password even though last year it seemed to hold up just fine to people connecting to it. I can understand the argument but I still think a school wide student WiFi should be implemented. Also they just need to upgrade their network altogether, but of course their budget couldn't support such an upgrade. I'm just glad universities will have WiFi networks you can connect to. I will enjoy being able to surf the web a lot more efficiently, and on the go.

    I'm assuming if their IT staff disabled drag and drop to the desktop, they also managed to keep the password under wraps. Furthermore, most "real" networks that are meant to support a large amount of people are smart card logins, not WEP

    Assuming it's a school and they have limited budget, and furthermore they kept the password under wraps for a year, point being? My idea of retrieving the password via a computer already connected is the most viable. Although if he was able to retrieve the handshake he could verwell crack it. As for your smart login soultion, it in it's self can cause instability and or other issues while making the problem more complicated and as I said it's a school not a business (some are both) therfore they have a small budget, technology is almost always skimped on as are IT people. They generally hire a temp to do such things anyhow.
