Forgetting your Wi-Fi password can be frustrating and inconvenient, but it’s actually quite common, especially if you have multiple devices and networks that you need to connect to. The good news is that, if you’re using Windows 11, you don’t need to worry anymore, because there’s an easy way to see your Wi-Fi password!
To start, simply click on the Windows icon in the bottom left corner of your screen, and then go to settings. From there, select Network & Internet and then click on the Wi-Fi option ( or press Win+R and type ncpa.cpl in the RUN dialog box ) . You should then see a list of available networks. Take your time to look through them and select the one that you want to see the password for, and then click on Properties.
Once you are in Properties, scroll down until you see the “Network security key” option. This is where your WiFi password should be displayed. If for some reason it’s not there, make sure that the “Show characters” box is checked. By doing this, your password should appear right away. Follow this step-by-step procedure:
In the Network Connections window that opens, right-click your WiFi adapter and click on Status.
In the Status window that opens, click Wireless Properties.
Choose Security from the Wireless Network Properties window.
To see your password, click the Show Characters box.
With these simple steps, you can easily retrieve your Wi-Fi password without having to reset your network settings or contact your internet service provider. So you can get back to being connected and work seamlessly on all your devices.
