1. Check the router you installed

If you haven’t changed the password from the default settings, then try checking your router. Most router manufacturers list the SSID (WiFi network name) and password on the back or bottom of the router in the form of a sticker. If there is no such information, you can also look for your router box when you first buy it. There is usually a series of numbers labeled as “Key,” which is your WiFi password.

2. Check the password on the Windows PC

If you want to share your WiFi password with your friends but you yourself have forgotten it, try this method. However, the condition is that you have to connect to the WiFi network first. Follow these steps:

Click the WiFi sign on the toolbar;

Click Network & Internet Settings, click WiFi;

Select Change adapter options at the bottom of the page;

Right click on the WiFi you are using;

Click Status, Wireless Properties;

Select the Security tab;

At the bottom of Network security key, click Show character;

So, that’s the WiFi password you are currently using.

For Android users, you can download the WiFi Master Key application from the Play Store. With this application, you can make it easier for your friends to connect to the same WiFi network when you are already connected. For example, if you are already connected to a WiFi network, friends who have this application can also automatically join that network. Let’s follow this simple method to find out your WiFi password:

1. Open the WiFi Master Key application.

2. Click the “Start Now” option.

3. Press the “Enable WiFi” button and perform a hotspot scan.

4. Give the app permission to access WiFi on your device.

This application is useful when you have connected to a WiFi network but forgotten the pass. Please follow these steps:

1. Download WiFi Password Recovery from Play Store.

2. Grant permission when the app requests access to WiFi.

3. The application will display the history of the WiFi networks you have used along with their passwords.

7. The final option, reset the router if you have difficulty applying the previous methods.

If you can’t use the previous methods, the last option is to reset the router. This is the step taken by a student from the Informatics study program at Alma Ata University to change the WiFi password. It is important to remember that by performing a reset, all devices connected to the network will be disconnected. Therefore, you should reconsider before doing it. Here are the steps you must follow:

1. Check the back of your router.

2. Press the reset button which is small, usually round, and often without a label.

3. On some routers, it may be necessary to use a needle or clip to press the reset button because the button is hidden inside.

4. Hold the reset button for at least 30 seconds until the router lights flash or turn off.

5. Find the SSID (WiFi network name) and Key (password) information on the back of the router.

6. Connect your mobile device or computer to the WiFi network using the original password (Key).

That’s how to find out the WiFi password on your laptop when you forget it. Make sure you remember these steps because you may need this information in the future. Good luck!
