Router Keygen is supposed to be one of the best WiFi auditing applications for Android smartphones and tablets. WiFi auditing? What's that for? To request the accounting books of a wireless router? Obviously not. It's simply a cooler a more technical way of calling the process of getting hold of our neighbor's WiFi password to steal his connection.
Free Internet, at everyone's reach.
And that's exactly what this free application does (there isn't a Pro version, so we'll just have to put up with the adverts): list all the networks in our scope and offer us all the keys to access them without having to do anything else than simply pressing a button.
How does it work?
There's no mystery behind the functioning of this app. Once we've installed the APK on our phone, the app will display a list of all the networks available, organized according to a color code to indicate whether the network's encryption is supported (green), probably not supported (orange) or definitely not supported (red) by this software.
If we choose one of the supported networks, the app will offer us a list of possible keys that we'll only have to copy and then paste into the corresponding box when we open the WiFi Settings of our smartphone. We've also got the possibility to tell the key generator to connect automatically to that network.
As well as the main function of this mobile application, we can also configure a series of options and adjustments to customize its functioning:
- Activate WiFi automatically.
- Automatic scan searching for new wireless networks.
- Choose the time interval for the automatic scanning.
- Options for specific brands of routers.
- Download and choose different key dictionaries.
- Manually input the ESSID and MAC address.
- Possibility to save detected networks and their passwords in a TXT.
Which is the best Router Keygen? Which is the newest?
There's only one Router Keygen for Android, as well as a version for PC that turns out to be very useful for laptop computers. The thing is that it's so popular that people usually use its name as a standard to refer to any tool to hack or crack a wireless network.
A multiplatform tool with versions for mobile and Windows.
However, it's an app that hasn't been updated for quite some time, if you wondering about which is its most recent version, it's still the same one as almost a year ago, version 3.15, one of the most popular editions of this tool (as it incorporates keys for Huawei and Alcatel), together with the APK of version 2.91 or 3.8. On the other hand, even if the app doesn't update, you can update its dictionary of keys (it's recommendable to get hold of the 2016 version) to keep up with the latest updates in terms of security applied by router and modem makers.
Which one's better? Router Keygen, Pulwifi or Wifi Unlocker?
As always, it depends. All three applications are great at what they're meant to do and have plenty of experience in the field of providing us with passwords of protected networks. But, which one's the best of the three? Basically, the one that will allow you to access of your choice whenever you want. So it's hard to choose one over another, although we have to admit that this RKG has an important background and is very popular among WiFi crackers. In fact, some people still want to know why there isn't iPhone version out yet.
