How To Quickly Find a Wi-Fi Password On Mac

See, sometimes we forget our Wi-Fi home password and today I was sitting on my iPad Mini, but I couldn't remember the password for my home Wi-Fi network. After spending a few minutes trying to find it in Network Preferences on my MacBook Pro, I realized that I was looking in the wrong spot.

But it looks like there is a better and easier way that most Mac users should follow it, passwords have been stored in an application called Keychain Access. So if you’re looking for a password that you simply can’t remember, you’re in luck. Read ahead on how to find a Wi-Fi password on Mac…

How To Find A Password On Mac OS X

STEP 1: Firstly type "KeyChain Access" into the spotlight search at the top-right menu bar.
STEP 2: Now search for the network you want the password for and double click on it.
STEP 3: Click on "Show Password" and confirm your administrator username and password.
 STEP 4: After that you should see your Wi-Fi network password appeared for you.

Keychain Access also stores your applications, internet and web form passwords, so you’re in luck if you forget one of those too. If password management is something you are not great at, consider looking into 1Password on the Mac App Store. It’s a useful app for keeping track of passwords wherever you use them, especially in light of recent events like the Heartbleed bug.
