I notice that some people on this comment page are just asking to access an email account or a game account. keep in mind that THC Hydra brute forces using a dictionary attack, meaning that a file with a bank of common passphrases is run through by the program, to crack an authentication service. You can’t just expect it to plug into an auth. service and instantly crack the password, unless you give it limitations (I’m assuming, because I use aircrack-ng with crunch), so it knows where to look. I recommend that you read the README file included. If you don’t understand what it says, then… I don’t know, man.
