How to Become a Hacker in 2021


Hacking is an engaging field but it is surely not easy. To become a hacker one has to have an attitude and curiosity of learning and adapting new skills. You must have a deep knowledge of computer systems, programming languages, operating systems, and the journey of learning goes on and on.

Some people think that a hacker is always a criminal and does illegal activities but they are wrong. Actually many big companies hire hackers to protect their systems and information and are highly paid. here is the list of most important steps necessary to become a hacker, have a deeper look




UNIX/LINUX is an open-source operating system that provides better security to computer systems. It was first developed by AT&T in Bell labs and contributed a lot to the world of security. You should install LINUX freely available open-source versions on your desktops as without learning UNIX/LINUX, it is not possible to become a hacker.



Code in C language


C programming is the basis of learning UNIX/LINUX as this operating system is coded in C programming which makes it the most powerful language as compared to other programming languages. C language was developed by Dennis Ritchie in the late 1970s. To become a hacker you should master the C language.



Code in more than one Programming Language


It is important for a person in the hacking field to learn more than one programming. There are many programming languages to learn such as Python, JAVA, C++. Free eBooks, tutorials are easily available online.



Learn Networking Concepts


Another important and essential step to becoming a hacker is to be good at networking concepts and understanding how the networks are created. You need to know the differences between different types of networks and must have a clear understanding of TCP/IP and UDP to exploit vulnerabilities (loopholes) in the system. Understanding what LAN, WAN, VPN, Firewall is also important. You must have a clear understanding and use of network tools such as Wireshark, NMAP for packet analyzing, network scanning, etc.



Learn More Than One Operating Systems


It is essential for a hacker to learn more than one operating system. There are many other Operating systems apart from Windows, UNIX/LINUX, etc. Every system has a loophole, a hacker needs it to exploit it.



Learn Cryptography


To become a successful hacker you need to master the art of cryptography. Encryption and Decryption are important skills in hacking. Encryption is widely done in several aspects of information system security in authentication, confidentiality, and integrity of data. Information on a network is in an encrypted form such as passwords. While hacking a system, these encrypted codes need to be broken, which is called decryption.



Learn more and more about hacking


Go through various tutorials, eBooks written by experts in the field of hacking. In the field of hacking, learning is never-ending because security changes every day with new updates in systems.



Experiment A Lot


After learning some concepts, sit and practice them. Set up your own lab for experimental purposes. You need a good computer system to start with as some tools may require a powerful processor, RAM, etc. Keep on Testing and learning until you breach a system.



Write Vulnerability (Loophole program)


Vulnerability is the weakness, loophole, or open door through which you enter the system. Look for vulnerabilities by scanning the system, network, etc. Try to write your own and exploit the system.



Continue never ending Learning


Learning is the key to success in the world of hacking. Continuous learning and practicing will make you the best hacker. Keep yourself updated about security changes and learn about new ways to exploit systems.



Join Discussions and meet hackers


The most important for a hacker is to make a community or join forums, discussions with other hackers worldwide so that they can exchange and share their knowledge and work as a team. Join Facebook groups related to hacking where you can get more from experts.
