Finding Wi-Fi Password with CMD

You can easily find the password for all your Wi-Fi networks using CMD. To do this, simply use the powerful Netsh command along with the Wlan subcommand.

To start, run CMD as Run As Administrator or Elevated. (You can also view wireless passwords in User mode.)

Enter the Netsh command along with the Wlan subcommand and the Show parameter and the Profiles parameter to see all the Wi-Fi networks you’ve connected to. For example:

Netsh Wlan Show Profiles

The above command only displays the list of Wi-Fi networks you’ve connected to. To get more information about each of these networks, you can enter the name of that network after the Profile parameter. For example:

Netsh Wlan Show Profiles AndroidAP
Netsh Wlan Show Profiles AndroidAP

In the Security Settings section, you can view information related to the security of your Wi-Fi. However, as you may have noticed, the password is not displayed anywhere. To view the Wi-Fi password, you need to use the parameter Key=Clear after specifying the Profile name. For example:

Netsh Wlan Show Profiles AndroidAP Key=Clear

Now you can see the information related to the authentication of your Wi-Fi network in the Security Settings section. The Wi-Fi password is displayed in the Key Content section.
