How to find Wi-Fi Network Password

Hello guys, I just wanted to share with you guys the little trick and how I managed to hack out the password of the Wi-Fi that you are once connected to.

Learn about a simple command for Windows and Mac that will help you quickly find the password of a Wi-Fi network that your computer is already connected to.

Your computer is connected to a Wi-Fi network but you do not remember the password that you had earlier used to connect to this particular WiFi network. Maybe you forgot the password or maybe the network administrator entered it directly without revealing the actual password to you and you actually want to connect to that same network again.

You would now like to connect a second device, like your mobile phone, to the same WiFi network but how do you find out the password? You can either send a password request the WiFi admin or you can open the command prompt on your computer and retrieve the saved password in one easy step. The technique works on both Mac and Windows PCs.

Steps on How to find Wi-Fi Network Password on Windows

STEP1:  Open the command prompt in administrator mode. Type “cmd” in the Run box, right-click the command prompt icon and choose Run as Administrator (see how). Now enter the following command and hit enter to see the WiFi password.

netsh wlan show profile name=gudtalent key=clear

Remember to replace gudtalent with the name of your Wireless SSID (this is the name of the Wi-Fi network that you connect your computer to). The password will show up under the Security Setting section (see screenshot).

 

If you do not see the password, probably you’ve not opened the command prompt window as administrator.

Your Mac OS X uses Keychain to store the configuration details of the WiFi network and we can use the BSD command “security” to query anything stored inside Keychain, including the Wi-Fi password. Here’s how:

 

Open Spotlight (Cmd+Space) and type terminal to open the Terminal window. At the command line, enter the following command (replace gudtalent with your WiFi name), then enter your Mac username and password to access the OS X keychain and the Wi-FI network password would be displayed on the screen in plain text.
