Social engineering is basically is a process of gathering confidential information about a target from another person by communicating with them. There are two common tactics that are applied to accomplish this task which are by interviewing another person or by interrogating another person. But the second one is actually a bit violence than the interviewing one. So from that I prefer the first one which is the interviewing one. But, people also will not let you know about the confidential information that they have to a people that they never talk before or to a stranger. So, in order to have the information you needed from them you have to make them “trust” you. If not you will not be able to obtain the confidential information you needed from them.

basically this cupp is to list all the possible password from someone using their personal information.
