Gmail is one of the biggest and popular mail services on the web. It is a secure service that is hard to break, especially if you are a beginner. It is not easy to read an email on someone’s computer without knowing a password. Even if Gmail page has a high level of security, people know how to hack Gmail account secretly. In article, we will share some educational tips about cracking Gmail.
1. Managing Your Expectations
– Step 1: Understand the limitations. Gmail is an incredibly secure service. The only way you’ll be able to “hack” into someone’s account is by stealing their password. If your target has two-factor authentication, you’ll need their mobile device as well. There is no other way around two-factor authentication.
– Step 2: Understand the legality. It is absolutely illegal in most areas to access someone’s email account without authorization. This article is for educational purposes only.
2. Using a Keylogger
– Step 1: Find a keylogger program that suits your needs. A keylogger is a program that logs the keystrokes on the computer it is installed on. There are a variety of keylogger programs available for free or for purchase online, with varying degrees of stealthiness. Be sure to research all of your options carefully. Popular programs include:
+ Actual Keylogger
+ Spyrix Free Keylogger
+ BlackBox Express
– Step 2: Install the keylogger on the target’s computer. This will require administrator access to the target’s computer. On many computers, the password will be “admin” or will just be blank.
+ The process for installing the keylogger varies depending on the program you are using.
+ Installing a keylogger without the other person knowing is illegal.
– Step 3: Start the keylogger service. Start the service so that it begins recording keystrokes. The process for this will vary depending on the program you are using. You may have to configure the program to record keys if it has multiple functions.
– Step 4: Let the keylogger run while the target uses the computer. The keylogger will likely capture a lot of information. You can filter based on the window that the user is typing in.
– Step 5: View the logs. Some keyloggers will send the logs to your email. Others will require you to export them from the computer that the program is running on. Browse through the logs until you find what you suspect to be the target’s Gmail password. You may be able to filter by the Gmail login page.
+ If the keylogger doesn’t send you the logs via email, you’ll need to access the program on the computer you installed it on to view them.
3. Using the Browser’s Password Manager
– Step 1: Open the web browser that your target uses on their computer. You must have access to that person’s computer. Try this when they’re out of the room or you know that you have a few minutes alone.
+ Open a link from an email or a Help menu to launch the default browser.
– Step 2: Open the password manager. The process for accessing the password manager is different depending on the browser you are using.
+ Internet Explorer – Click the Gear button or the Tools menu and select “Internet Options.” Click the “Content” tab and then click the “Settings” button in the AutoComplete section. Select “Manage Passwords” from the new window.
+ Chrome – Click the Chrome Menu button (☰) and select “Settings.” Click the “Show advanced settings” link and then scroll to the “Passwords and forms” section. Click “Manage passwords.”
+ Firefox – Click the Firefox Menu button (☰) and select “Options.” Click the “Security” tab and then click “Saved Passwords.”
+ Safari – Click the Safari menu and select “Preferences.” Click the “Passwords” tab.
– Step 3: Find the password for your target’s Google account. Use the search bar in the password manager to search for “google”. This is the quickest way to narrow down the list of passwords. Look for the “accounts.google.com” entry for the target’s Gmail address.
– Step 4: Display the password. Select the password and then click the “Show” or “Show Password” button. You may have to enter the administrator password for the computer before the passwords are displayed.
– Step 5: Write down the password and then close the password manager. Make note of the password as well as the exact Gmail address. Close the password manager when you are done to cover your tracks.
– Step 6: Try the password from another computer. If the target has not enabled two-factor authentication, then you should be able to access the account. The target will likely be notified that a login has occurred from an unknown browser.
+ If the target has two-factor authentication activated, then you will need the code that is sent to their mobile device. There is no way around this if it is activated.
