Everything sent or received through internet is in shape of packets. These packets consist of data which can be confidential or general.

Other operating system like Linux, Kali and Ubuntu offers this facility.

But only a programmer with lots of internet knowledge can intercept data packets and analyze them to hack Gmail password. These packets are also saved in cookies. So to hack password of Gmail account you can either copy cookies of browser or to intercept them. Non programmers can also intercept cookies if they are on the same network as the target.
They only have to use a packet sniffer to find Gmail data packets. There are few shortcomings when it comes to hacking gmail password with packet sniffer.

I had already discussed phishing in few other articles already. Generally spoofed email ids are used to tricks users to give their precious data right into hackers hand. During this process hacker can change his identity as a company or a person to trick the target This technique can also work in hacking a Gmail id. But this is more advance technique and is difficult to master. New people can be busted within few minutes. Hackers can create a Fake gmail page and make it looks like that user suddenly logs out his gmail after clicking this link. The credentials of users will directly ends up in hackers hand if user enters them in spoofed pages.

To create a spoofing gmail page you have to learn HTML, PHP and many other languages. This process is lengthy and can only work on dull type of people. This type of technique was used by hacker in 1990’s when websites are not as advanced as today.

So you now know that hacking a gmail account’s password is not an impossible task. Anyone with time and right knowledge can do it on regular bases. 

Don’t forget to comment and share your experiences with other users. Never ever try all this useful knowledge to harm someone. Also keep you gmail account safe. Avoid phishing links and don’t save passwords in browser. Always clear your cookies on regular bases.
