are you really asking us to help you cheating your provider by telling you how to steal wifi accounts? I wonder if there is any country on earth where that is legal...

Wireshark is just a diagnostic tool.

Unless the Internet provider has botched configuration payment and authentication data will be encrypted in plain text.

Wireshark is a network protocol analyser and cannot modify the packets sent by your system to steal wifi usage from a provider.
