We Frequently Forget our WiFi password and search for the password in Network and Sharing Center and in the Wireless properties of our Computer.However, We can easily find WiFi Password using CMD using some useful commands.
When we connect to the WiFi Network and enter the WiFi password to connect to that network, we are apparently making WLAN profile of that network which is then stored in our device along with the WiFi profile.
In contrast, We can view our WiFi password by accessing router setting,but that can make you in trouble. So simply using some CMD command can help you in a new way.
How to Find Wifi Password using CMD?
- Firstly, Open Command Prompt in administrator mode.
2. In the second step, We would see all the profiles that are stored in our system. For this , type the following command:
netsh wlan show profile
3. This command shows all the WiFi profiles that you have ever connected to.
4. In the above picture, we have intentionally blurred some of our WiFi network names. As you can see, there are eight WiFi networks that we are connect to. So, let’s go and find out the password for the WiFi ‘NETGEAR50’ in this case, which I created intentionally for this article.
5. Type the following command to see the password of any WiFi network:
netsh wlan show profile WiFi-name key=clear
The command will be like:
netsh wlan show profile NETGEAR50 key=clear
6. And Finally, Under the security settings in the ‘key content’, you see the WiFi password of that particular network.
