Windows 10 has tools that can satisfy any user. Whatever your need, you can find a simple and quick solution to use.
One of these features, often requested, is associated with wifi networks. Users want to know the network password set without having to use any app. There is a simple form that everyone can possibly use.
Discover the wifi password
With the amount of wifi networks we access daily, it can be tricky to remember all the passwords we have. These are registered in Windows 10, but not always we know how to access to them to share them. There is a simple way around this problem, certainly without using any apps.
To be able to access the wifi network password, you must first connect to this wifi network. Once done, they should open Windows 10 Settings and choose Network and Internet.
Within this area of the settings, you should choose the Wi-Fi tab. Inside, and already with your network connected, choose the Change advanced sharing options option. This is on the right side of the window.
A new window will open where you can especially see the connections made. You should choose the Wifi connection, which should be on the right side of the window that is now shown. Just click on the name of the network you want to consult.
Just need to connect to the wireless network
A new window will open again, this time much smaller. They can immediately see network data such as connectivity, SSID name, connection time and even connection speed.
To advance you must click the Wireless Properties button. This is in the middle of this window, next to the Details option.
It is now that they finally have access to the wifi password. This is on the Security tab in the Network security key field. They can also consult the security type and the encryption type.
In the field associated with the network security key will have the password. Click on the Show characters check box and the password will appear.
Windows 10 gives you all the data
They just need to copy it or share it with anyone they want so they can access the wireless network. This can not be changed in this field, giving only the possibility to be consulted.
This is probably the simplest and least intrusive way to access this password. They can resort to other, more basic forms, but always within Windows and without extra tools.
