In this article, we are going to discuss the Wi-Fi password problems you may also have experienced that situation when you go to your friends or relative home and you definitely want to connect to their Wi-Fi or hotspot in order to get Internet access. But when you ask for this then they put their password by taking your phone while hiding it from you.
And also If you do the job in the IT department or somewhere else you must have connected to your company’s Wi-Fi in order to work, anybody there can also ask you for a Wi-Fi password then it will be better if you known password. Sometimes you can come across the problem of “You can’t connect to Wi-Fi network” then you will right-click on the network and click on the forgot, but wait you don’t know the password.
Then, you will be going to give a headache to the person who is managing the network.
So, here we have a solution for your problem we are gonna show you how to “Show password on your Android and Window”. We have explained everything with an appropriate example to make it understandable. So, first, we will talk about Android.
How to show the Wi-Fi password on Windows?
To know the password of Wi-Fi your device has connected, just follow these simple steps which are given below. This will work for all known versions of Windows, I am doing it on my device which is currently running on Windows 10.
Step 1: Right-click on your laptop or PC “Wi-fi logo” and click on “Open Network & Internet settings”.
Step 2: As you will click on “Open Network & Internet settings” this will open the Network Status and settings of the Wi-fi network. Now, click on “Change Adapter settings”.
Step 3: Now, As you click on “Change adapter options” you will see a bunch of options in front of your screen, you have to look for Wi-fi then “double tab” Wi-fi and you will see a dialogue open up in fort of you with some sort of Wi-fi information.
Step 4: As the dialogue prompts you will see many options but now we are only concerned about knowing the passwords, so click on “Wireless Properties”. As I have marked the right option to click on with red. So, just click on it.
Step 5: Now you will see another prompt appeared on your screen with two options on uppermost. And those options are “Connection” and “Security”, click on “Security”.
Step 6: And you will see as I have already marked with a red box giving us the option to “Show the characters”. Now finally we are here to see the password, just click on the box and it will ask for “Permission”. Just click on the prompt and that is it.
Step 7: Now, the password is in front of you. You have to know the password; now copy it somewhere or remember it for the next time situation.
So, revealing the password of connected Wi-fi was quite easy but it’s not an easy task in Android. Due to security reasons, you may need to root your phone. Thus, I am not explaining those things in this post. But, in the future if I got a request then I would love to explain to reveal the password in android also.
