Reveal wireless password on Windows 10

Few days ago my sister called me because she couldn`t remember her home wireless password to access Internet. How come? She had some guests at home while she was away and she could not remember it since all devices she use, has remembered it and she didn’t knew how to reveal it. So, there is simple way to reveal wireless password in case you were at least once connected to particular SSID.

Go to yours Windows start button In command prompt type following:

netsh wlan show profile “NETWORK NAME” key=clear

Instead of  NETWORK NAME type name of SSID for which you want to see password. If you want to see all SSID`s passwords type following:

netsh wlan show all

Of course, please be aware that you need have data of particular SSID in your cache.  In case you have deleted data, you won`t be able to obtain password (slide 1.).
