They target in hacking the password to gain access to information capturing. In short, Hackers are skilled computer programmers having sound knowledge of computer security.


There are some specific techniques which are adopted by hackers to hack passwords. One such method is phishing pages. A hacker will lure you by sending a login page to either Gmail or Facebook. It will appear as a ditto copy of the exact look of actual Facebook or the Gmail login page. Once you enter your details, your password gets captured.


Another method is spidering. Here the hackers will completely ignore techniques for personal information hunt. They remain aware that the maximum population prefers in maintaining their work passwords similar to the job role or work nature. What they do is that they analyze corporate terminology and other relevant facts regarding a specific company. Spidering is typically done for big sized companies, as such, companies have more information available online, and the chances are high that they keep standardized passwords. Spidering is best for capturing wifi password. 


Hackers are competent enough to attack the cloud servers by applying various attacks, like the DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack or even the man-in-the-cloud attack, for accessing the data passwords.


We mentioned here are just a few of the several techniques used by the hackers to hack your password. Hackers always don’t mean wrong as for investigating criminal cases. Police and investigating departments take the hackers' help to find clues for resolving the case and reach the real culprit.
