How to Check Wifi Password on Windows 10?
- Finding Your Wi-Fi Password in Network and Sharing Center – The simplest way to find your Wi-Fi password on Windows 10 is by going into the Network and Sharing Center. To do this, open up the Start Menu (by either clicking on the Start button or pressing the Windows key) and type in “Network and Sharing Center.” Once you click on that result, a window should appear with all of your current networks listed. Find your home network under “Wireless Networks” and right click on it. A list of options will appear; choose “Status” from that list. This will bring up a new window called “Wi-Fi Status.” In that window, click on “Wireless Properties” and then select the “Security” tab. Finally, check the box next to “Show characters” and your Wi-Fi password will be revealed!
- Checking Your Password Using Command Prompt – There is an alternate way to check your Wi-fi password in Windows 10 using command prompt. To open command prompt, press the Windows key + R simultaneously and type in “cmd” followed by Enter. Once command prompt is open, type in “netsh wlan show profile [Your SSID] key=clear”, replacing [Your SSID] with your actual SSID (the name of your home network). After pressing Enter, you should see a line with “key content” followed by an alphanumeric code—that’s your Wi-Fi password!
Checking your Wi-Fi password on Windows 10 is easy once you know how! Whether you use Network and Sharing Center or Command Prompt, finding out what your network’s password is only takes a few seconds. With this knowledge in hand, website owners and SEO newbies alike can now easily add their devices to any wireless network without having to ask for help from others!
