CHANGING THE MAC ADDRESS IN PARROT OS

A simple way to prove who was attacking you, is to track their MAC address back to the hardware in their computer. This has helped prove case after case against malicious actors. One way to safeguard against this, is to change your mac address, and luckily this software is readily available in Parrot OS

To change your mac address:
Open a Terminal
Type:
sudo bash
Enter your password
ifconfig
Note the adapters you have, for this, we are going to change our WIreless adapter, named WLAN2
ifconfig WLAN2 down
macchanger -a WLAN2
ifconfig WLAN2 up


That’s it. Your mac address is now spoofed

Display Wifi Passwords Stored on a Windows 10 Computer

Show All Stored Wireless Keys

Open a Command Prompt on the Windows 10 Computer and type:

netsh wlan show profiles

Identify the network you want to show the password for…Ex. HOME

netsh wlan show profile name=HOME key=clear

Look for the line that says Key Content and that will be your wireless password.

A tip for the masses. Once a user is done on your network, erase your network from their device….otherwise your password can be compromised and your privacy is at risk.

AND if you have the ability to have a guest network at your house, set it up. Keep your network secure.
