You can know the WiFi password, if you ask the device owner and they tell you. Hacking into other devices or trying to crack passwords, is illegal and not endorsed in this community.

Unless they are all your own wifis, you may not know their passwords because the passwords are supposed to keep out unauthorized persons.

Not going to go into to much detail here. Just more of a fun fact. While possible to bruteforce it would not be worth it. If we assume that the password is 10 characters long and that each character is numerical then we have 10 choices for each character. This results in 10,000,000 000 possibilities. If we were to attempt 100 combinations each minute then it would take as long as 190 years to find the password. If we switch to a subset of english characters, such as the lowercase letters (26 characters), it could take up to 2,685,828 years. Imagine a mixed character password(upper, lower, digits, specials, etc...) it could take a very long time.

If you were to generate every lowercase combination, it would take 1.4 petabytes to store on a hard drive. I wish I had that much storage space....
