It is impossible to use someone’s WiFi network without their password. But Cracking Wi-Fi passwords isn’t a trivial process, and it doesn’t take too long to learn—whether you’re talking simple WEP passwords or the more complex WPA.
Here’s a list of some of the most popular pieces of WiFi network hacking software available. Some crack the password automatically, Note: some of these applications cost money, while some are free.
Find WiFi password of previous connections –
I like a video on the same topic from Geeks Tutorial on Youtube.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Open Windows Search and type Notepad
- Right-click the Notepad icon
- Click Run as Administrator
- ▼Command lines Mentioned on this video ▼
Just go ahead and right click on command prompt and choose run as administrator.
If you didn’t choose run as
administrator on the right click menu!
The commend prompt will not gonna launch with admin rights
or administrative privileges, may result the method failure
That’s why i insist you need to pay close attention!
Now you can see something pops up, like a black box,
on the desktop, which is the Command Prompt itself.
Now it’s time to begin the password hunt
or the password finding process! Just enter this commend line to the Command Prompt
which is “netsh wlan show profiles”.
You can copy this command and paste it to the Command Prompt directly.
you will find this command line on the video description below as well.
So that you can go there and do it right away,
and.. for now I’m going to type it in directly
and it’s done. Now hit the enter key on your keyboard!
Now you will see all the WiFi network profiles or hotspot that we showed you earlier!
So pick your one, that you need to find the password for!
And for that just right click anywhere inside the Command Prompt,
and from the right click menu! Choose “Mark”
Now you can mark or select the WiFi network you need,
then hit Ctrl + C keys to copy it!
Now you need to type in another command line here,
that is “netsh wlan show profile”, not show profiles!
Now hit space and paste the WiFi profile name, that we copied earlier,
and you can do it by hitting the Ctrl + V keys on your keyboard.
Now again hit space key, then type “key=clear”
and finely press enter.
Boom! Here is your WiFi Password! I know you are struggling to find it!
Believe it or not, it is right in front of your eyes, besides the “key content”
So that’s how you can find any WiFi password on your computer.
By using this method even you can find your neighbours or friends WiFi password,
but it must be connected with your device at least a single time
before you trying this method.
But we are not recommend using others WiFi password without their permission
or you can use it for finding your own WiFi’s password, like
there are some peoples, who doesn’t want to remember there password
for those guys it will really do a great help, especially, if they wanted to
get a new device to connected with their existing WiFi networks.
So that’s how you can find any WiFi password.
