How to View a Wireless Network Password

Nice one this…very simple way to view the password for a wireless connection.

Open an Admin Command Prompt and enter the following command:

  • netsh wlan show profiles

The output from this command will include the SSID of the wireless network – make a note of it and include it in the next command replacing xxxx

  • netsh wlan show profile name=xxxx key=clear

The output of this command will include the password in clear text.
