Are you in search of a wi-fi password in your Windows 10 system? Well, we often set a strong wi-fi password and we set our device to get connected automatically whenever the device switches on. In the meantime, we even forget that password. But what if you require the wi-fi password to connect a new device to the wi-fi network or you may need it for some other purpose?
Well, you can retrieve the wi-fi password of your system with the Windows 10 operating system if the device is already connected to the network. With some steps, you can easily check the wi-fi password. Although there are some third-party apps that can help you in retrieving the wi-fi password. But I hope the method illustrated in this section is enough to do so.
Steps to Check Wi-Fi Password in Windows 10:
Step 1: At the right side of the taskbar you have to click on the wi-fi icon.
It will display all the wi-fi devices that are available near you.
Step 2: Right-click on the wi-fi icon present in your taskbar and among the displayed options click on ‘Network and Sharing Center’.
Step 3: A ‘Network and Sharing Center’ window will pop out where you have to select your wi-fi network. Just click the wi-fi network name to which your device is connected as you can see in the image below.
Step 4: A Wi-Fi status window will appear where under the Connection you have to click on the ‘Wireless Properties’ button.
Step 5: Again a ‘Wireless Network Properties’ window will pop up where you have to click on the ‘Security’ tab.
Step 6: Under ‘Security’ tab you have to check the ‘Show characters’ checkbox. Now you can check the wi-fi password in the ‘Network security key’ text box.
So this is the way you can check the wi-fi password of your windows 10 operating system.
