Recover Saved Wireless Network Passwords

By DominicD
Each time you connect to a wireless network (wifi), you will need to input the wireless password. Windows makes it easy for us by remembering the wireless password of each wifi network. Once the password is saved in Windows, it can automatically connect if we have moved to a different wifi hotspot. However, how do you view the saved wireless passwords?

As we connect to more wireless networks, we tend to forget the password of each connection. In the future, it becomes difficult for us to recall the password. This specially a problem if we have removed the connection and need to reconnect.

WirelessKeyView is a free program that is able to reveal the wifi passwords that are remembered by Windows. Simply run and WirelessKeyView program, and it automatically detects and displays the remembered wireless passwords. Simply
copy and paste the passwords if you need to reconnect to the network. Its best to save the passwords on a piece of paper of a password protected file.

WirelessKeyView is not a password hacking tool. It simply obtains the passwords saved in the Windows registry. Download WirelessKeyView from its website WirelessKeyView download and reviews from SnapFiles
