How Do I Find My Wi-Fi Password?

Updated: Aug 17, 2020

SSID is short for service set identifier

In layman's terms, the SSID is the name of your Wi-Fi network

Method One (Easy)

  • Look on the bottom or back of your modem/router for a wifi key or password


Method Two (Easy)

  • Ask your Kids or Grand Kids


Method Three (Moderate)

Windows computer - **Must be connected to your Wi-fi network already

Press the Windows key and R

Type ncpa.cpl in the run box and press Enter

Right click on the wireless network adaptor and select Status

Click the Wireless Properties button

In the Properties dialog that appears, move to the Security tab

Click the Show characters check box


Method Four (Moderate)

Windows 10

Press the Windows key and R

Type cmd in the run box and press Enter

Type netsh wlan show profile in the cmd black screen and press Enter

Look for your SSID

Type in netsh wlan show profile ***** key=clear, press Enter ( ***** is your SSID. Replace ***** with your SSID name)

Under Security Settings in Key Content will be the last saved password


Method Five (Difficult)

  • Connect a computer using a LAN cable to your modem/router

  • Press the Windows key and R

  • Type cmd in the run box and press Enter

  • Type ipconfig in the cmd black screen and press Enter

  • Note the default gateway number (192.168.0.1)*

  • Open your web browser

  • In the address bar type in the default gateway number and press enter

  • You should be presented with your modem/router login page

  • Enter the username and password and press enter (Check the back of your modem/router for these)

  • Look for the Wi-fi section then Wi-Fi security section

  • Look for a password box

  • Look for a check box to either show or hide the password (check/uncheck)

We recommend you do not make any changes to your modem configuration. if you make changes to your Wi-Fi settings you will need to reconnect "ALL" of your Wi-fi devices (Phones, Tablets, Printers, TVs, Notebooks and so on)
