What should I do if I can’t remember my WiFi password?

If you forgot your Wi-Fi password on your computer, to view a saved Wi-Fi password on Windows, open the list of wireless networks in the Control Panel — you can quickly do this by pressing Windows Key + R, typing ncpa.cpl into the box, and press Enter.

Right-click a saved Wi-Fi network, select Status, and click the “Wireless Properties” button. Click over to the Security tab and check the “Show characters” box to view the saved Wi-Fi password. You must have administrator access to the computer to view this information.

Another method,

You can contact your ISP and ask them to give or change the password. This once happened to me and I had contacted my ISP. They told me to navigate to a website (I can’t remember if it was our ip address or the isp website) and from there, it showed lots of info. I had changed the password to fluffysnugglenuggets after that (I was seven) and I had changed the name of it to superman (I was obsessed with him at the time)

There also might be a sticker on the model thing. On mine, it lists all basic information such as the name, password, security and a lot more.


Sign into your router’s settings, and go to WiFi security settings to change password.

  1. Go to cmd, type ipconfig. You’ll see a gateway address there.
  2. Copy that address into browser, and you’ll be asked for username and password. Check your router’s down side for username and password. By default, most of the devices username and password is admin.
  3. After logging into router’s configuration page, navigate to Wifi security and see the password field.
