Find Hidden Network with Kismet

In Kali there are few tools to find hidden network or SSID, for example you can use aircrack-ng to view hidden SSIDs but their full network name will stay hidden on the screen unless you deauth a connected client and when it tries to reconnect the networks name will appear. The easiest way to find hidden networks is using a tool called Kismet. Enter command kismet -h to show the options. Type kismet -c wlan1  (depends on your wireless card sometimes wlan0, eth0).
