Привет is the most common way to say "hi" in Russian.
Привет is an informal greeting and can used only between friends, family and people of young age.
In formal situations, such as with people you don't know, with people older than you and with everybody you should be polite with, you should use здравствуйте (which is translated as "hello" in Russian).
There are also other ways to say "hi" in Russian. You can use the word салют which comes from the French "salut". However, it is much less common than привет.
