    I’ve heard of brute force. That’s the only one I know.

    Phising and Social Engineering would be some other ways.

    Depends how you define ‘crack’.

    Phishing and social engineering is not cracking for me, but stealing. If you do phishing or social engineering, you are not doing anything technical, but you trick the other person in giving you their password.

    Besides bruteforcing, as in ‘try each possible password’, which can happen with a hash file – so locally – or remote, you can also Crack a password by abusing bugs in software. For example the local windows login.
