You are connected to a WiFi using your pc with Windows, and you need to know what is the password used to connect into the network
I know two methods to achieve this goal.
- Right-click in the taskbar in the WiFi icon (marked in red in the image)
- Click on Open Network & Internet settings
- Click on the menu Wi-Fi
- Click on Change adapter options
- Right-click on your Wi-Fi adapter
- Click on Status
- Click the button Wireless Properties
- Navigate to the Security tab
- then tick Show characters checkbox to show the WiFi password in the Network security key field.
Open the Command Prompt or Windows PowerShell and run the following command replacing “WiFiName” with the name of the WiFi network you are connected to
netsh wlan show profile name="WiFiName" key=clear | findstr Key
The Key Content will display the WiFi password in the command prompt as a result.
Note: “WiFiName” is not case sensitive but if you don’t write correctly your WiFiName no error and no result will be displayed.
