Access WiFi Password Using CMD

Whenever you connect to a WiFi network and enter the password to connect to that network, a WLAN profile of that WiFi network is made. That profile is stored inside the computer along with the other required details of the WiFi profile.

Instead of using a GUI to find the individual passwords, we can also look for the WiFi password of that particular WiFi network using cmd. These steps work even when totally offline or not connected to the particular WiFi.

1. Open command prompt and run it as administrator.

2. View all profiles stored on computer by typing: netsh wlan show profile (this command will list all WiFi profiles connected to).

Network names intentionally removed

3. To see the password for a network type the following: netsh wlan show profile [SSID] key=clear

Under Security Settings, in the key content entry, you will see the password of the specified network.

Students are provided with full length practice exams that closely follow exam objectives and simulate exam conditions. In addition to the practice exams, is a Prep Engine which is similar to CompTIA CertMaster. It contains 160 questions which a repeatedly asked until you get three sequential correct answers. This is designed to assist students in mastering content.

The Post-Assessment feature is the final indicator of a student’s readiness to sit the certification exam. Students are encouraged to attempt this test after completing all exercises and test sets with a minimum score of 90% to confirm mastery.

128 labs are provided to allow students to put the theory into practice. These labs, which are a mix of simulations, labeling, and matching, are used to reinforce particular topics and concepts.

Ultimately, uCertify’s learning platform provides all the tools a student will need to be successful in their pursuit of a certification. The only thing a student needs to bring to the table is the motivation and discipline to learn and prepare.


Side Note

uCertify’s learning philosophy is based on: Learn, Practice, and Track! The learning features are provided by an interactive textbook, study notes, flash cards, How-to-dos, exercises with hints and more. Students then practice from hundreds of questions in learn, test and review modes for optimal learning, until they have mastered the concepts. And how does the student know that? The progress tracking and powerful analytics help a student clearly identify their areas of weakness and strength, as well as their progress at any given point of time.
