2 Apply some usual password tricks

The professional password guessers have some standard methods of guessing passkey, which is different from the obvious ones listed above.

There are a few tricks/methods you can also use to get any phone or computer login password.

Since we all know’s that there’s at least a 50% chance that a user’s password will contain one or more vowels. Capitalising on this fact Here are a few other tricks that you could help you in guessing login pass:-

  1. If the device or user account password has a number in it, then it will usually be either 1 or  2, and most of the time it will come at the end of the password.

2. If the password contains an uppercase letter, it will usually be at the beginning and may sometimes be followed by a vowel.


3. Get inspired from the password hint if it is available

This trick will make it easier to get any computer password If the password has a “hint” option available. It should have a hint option because if you want to create a password on a Windows PC, it usually requires password hint to be set.

The password hint can be anything related to the password you select, its purpose, after all, is to help The PC user to remember the passkey in case he/she forgets it.

This password hint can help you in guessing the password, for example, if the passkey is “Howtechwork” then the hint should be something close like “howtech” or “htw”.

Note: the hint will not tell you the primary password, it can only be of help in telling you what the passkey is likely to be.

So you have to be creative enough to think and get the password.


4. Keep guessing until you face a security question

This method is one of my favourite password guessing tricks,

If you try different passkey on some website for a while and it all failed, they may ask you to provide the account security question.


security question and answer


Whereas sometimes you have to provide the account username or email if you know it then clicks on forget password. Trying to reset a password on some website may trigger the security question which the account owner has put in place.

The question can be something like, “What is your mother’s maiden name?” or “What is the name of your first high school?”. These questions can help you to know the device or account password.

Even though you may not know the name of the person’s first high school, however, you can guess from some school name around that location.

Or, if you want to proof smart, you can try to bring up a conversation about school, then tell him the school you attended, luckily he or she might say to you his school.

And his answer could be the answer to the security question of the account. This account/phone password guessing method will work best if you know the owner of the account or device.

It will even become more natural if you can start a conversation with the person. There is no magic you can use to get the security answer except if you apply some social engineering trick here.


5. Check if there’s a requirement the password has to meet

If after several attempts to guess a device or an account passkey through guessing work proof abortive, you should check if the password has to be a certain length and contain some unique character.


account passkey requirement


Typical passwords have to be at least six characters long, and sometimes it may require at least one number, one symbol or a unique style.

If you wish to know the requirement for an online account password, Your best bet is to try and create an account at the website where you’re trying to guess the password.

Creating your account on the website will and make you know the site password requirement.

6. Guess personal names as the computer/phone password
