2 Ways To Find All Saved Wifi Passwords In Windows 10

There are times when we need to know the wifi password which we once entered in our Windows computer. For example, we need to enter the same password in another device. Or worse, we need the password of the wifi router which we aren’t currently connected to.

Find Wifi password in Windows 10

Windows 10 provides a simple way to see the password of the current Wifi connection. Just follow the steps below to see your current wifi password:

  1. Go to Control Panel –> Network and Internet –> Network and Sharing Center
  2. Click on the active Wifi connection
  3. Click on Properties to open Wifi network properties
  4. Go to Security tab and select Show characters to reveal the current Wifi password

Find all Wifi passwords saved in Windows 10

What if you want to find all the saved Wifi passwords in your Windows computer? There are two ways of finding all the saved Wifi passwords in Windows. Let’s discuss both of them.

Using Windows commands

To see all the Wifi passwords, you will need to run some commands in the command prompt.

  1. Open command prompt (Windows Key + X + C)
  2. Run the following command to show all the Wifi profiles saved on your computer:
    netsh wlan show profiles
  3. Now run the following command to reveal the Wifi password content of each profile:

    netsh wlan show profile name=WifiConnectionName key=clear

    Replace WifiConnectionName with the Wifi SSID which you can find from the above mentioned command

Using Wifi password revealer

If you are not comfortable with using the Windows command line, you can use third party software called Magical JellyBean Wifi password revealer which will retrieve all the Wifi passwords saved in Windows.

WiFiPasswordRevealerScreen

You just have to download Wifi password revealer, install and run it. There is no configuration required.

You can select any Wifi connection and press Ctrl + Alt + C to copy the password in the clipboard.

Please note that if you are using Windows Server 2003 or Windows XP, the actual Wifi password will not be show but it will be shown in HEX form. The same HEX password can be used to activate Wifi on any other device.

  1. Outdated! There is NO Network and sharing center in the control panel Microsoft just keeps shuffling everything and of course making it worse and more buggy.

    • Hi Boo Bilsson, I can confirm that the Network and Sharing Center is there in the Control Panel up until Windows 10 Version 20H2. I have also checked in on the latest Dev update for Windows 10, Network and Sharing Center is there too.
