How to Find Your WIFI Password when You Forgot It?

 

One easy and Simple Hack

 

Thanks for the request Valery,

 

To answer your question outright – there are a few ways and depending on if you connected prior or not.

 

As others have stated – logging into your routers web ui will allow you to review under the wireless →security tabs (generally).

 

Some routers – have capabilities with phone apps that allow you to adjust and review router config with a clean ui. IE: Netgear Genie.

 

Also – most routers have a wps button – and many devices can connect this way.. It auto fills the information for you.

 

Alternatively – lets say you connected to the ssid with your Windows pc.

 

You can get your password with the following steps.

 

Open cmd prompt

 

(In windows 10 you can click start → search for “cmd.exe”)

 

Best match should show Command Prompt

 

Once opened enter “netsh wlan show profile” (without “ “)

 

This will populate a list of all the networks you have recently connected to.

 

Find the Network SSID (Name) and write it down.

 

Next enter the following syntax “netsh wlan show profile WiFi-name key=clear

 

Please note that the SSID you wrote down before you will enter at WIFI-Name.

 

IE. SSID = Thetimeisnow

 

Your syntax would be “netsh wlan show profile Thetimeisnow key=clear

 

Reminder: Do not include “ “ with syntax when applying in cmd.

 

This will show your password

 

Below I have included a snippet of what output will look like

 

The red is where you will find your password.

Just a fun test – enter the show password command without “clear”

 

Do you see a difference?

 

Do you better understand the syntax after reviewing?

 

Again,

 

Thanks for the request!

 

Cheers.
