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.
Find the WiFi Password on Windows
Open the command prompt in administrator mode. Type “cmd” in the Run box, right-click the command prompt icon and choose Run as Administrator. Now enter the following command and hit enter to see the WiFi password.
netsh wlan show profile name=nix key=clear
Remember to replace labnol 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 would only like to see the password and not the other information, use the findstr command:
netsh wlan show profile name=nix key=clear | findstr Key
If you do not see the password, probably you’ve not opened the command prompt window as administrator
