If I’ve been there once, I’ve been there a thousand times; I’ve connected to a wireless network with my computer, but want to connect with my phone, too. The only problem is that I don’t know what the WLAN password is. Luckily, you can find the password to networks you’ve connected to using the command line. Here’s how:
- Open the command line
- Identify the network profile name using this command:
netsh wlan show profile
- Run the same command, with a few additions to find the password:
netsh wlan show profile <WLAN NAME> key=clear
- Scroll down to Security settings, and you should find the password under Key Content.
