Please understand these videos are intended only for ethical hacking I don't support people who want to hack into peoples personal information or steal peoples information my website is to help educate people about how these attacks are preformed so people can be aware of these threats and what to look out for.
On this matthew knight getting started hacking guide will show you how to learn ethical hacking, and tell you what you need to learn to hack and what tools a lot of the hackers use for hacking into systems.
You need to understand that hacking takes many years to learn it's not something that is learned in a day I myself am still learning as I go every day in the world of hacking things change.
Their maybe a time when you're watching a video I made a week ago that might no longer work due to security improvements or that you might install a program that might have design and functions that have been changed.
I do my best to produce videos with the latest types of security attacks that can be preformed by hackers.
I wanna make this perfectly clear! I am NOT! an expert at what I teach I teach people what I learned what I do in my getting started with computer hacking videos can have mistakes im only human and we all make mistakes that's how we learn.
Don't be scared to make mistakes I learned a lot from the mistakes I made and still do.
