How do you?

Social engineering is the art of manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. While similar to a confidence trick or simple fraud, the term typically applies to trickery for information gathering or computer system access and in most cases the attacker never comes face-to-face with the victim.

How do you?

Ok i know social engineering is illegal but out of curiosity how do you do it? How do you find people that are stupid enough to give you their password? Where do you start?
And remember this. Its just out of curiosity.

But it should be obvious that you should give away your password. Like we all see the sign in our emails saying dont give out your password. And is social engineering not the lazy version of a phishing scam?

it is NOT complicated it is for dumbies and also

how they do it is like say they'll hack something for you and ask u for an username and password
the code for the void exception between the ear brackets
Code: Select all
public static }void(exception x = new exception(null)){

ok my brackets dont realy look like ears.
if you didnt get that it means there is nothing(no brains) between your ears.

Some of it can be just stupid.

"There are two popular methods, one involving hosting a game and watching incoming traffic and another basically asking the victim “YO WUT IZ UR IP ADDY?” Both seem to work quite well when dealing with pre-teens."
