When you connect to a secure Wi-Fi network for the Internet access, you have to supply a username and password. Usually this password is given to you by your office, university, school, hotel or some other organization. But if you forget your Wi-Fi password in the middle of the night, you cannot connect to the Internet as there is no way you would bother network admins at such a late hour. Thanks to the freeware Wi-Fi Password Revealer, now you can find out your forgotten wireless network passwords easily, all by yourself.
You can download Wi-Fi Password Revealer from the Magical Jellybean Software website. The download is around 3 megabytes in size and comes in form of an installer. During the installation, it would try to install some software that are not necessary for the Wi-Fi Password Revealer to work and you can easily refuse such programs from being installed. After the installation, it would launch Wi-Fi Password Revealer automatically displaying your stored passwords for the wireless networks.
You can save the displayed list of detected passwords in form of Excel (.XLS), CSV, HTML or plain text files. To save the passwords to a file, you have to select File → Save As from the menubar. It mus be mentioned that saving your passwords to un-encrypted files is not a safe practice, as just about anyone can get hold of those files and access your passwords. If you want to save the passwords to a file, you should encrypt them using a simple tool like AXCrypt.
For Wi-Fi Password Revealer to work, you must have connected to the wireless network at least once before and agreed to store your username and password when Windows asked you to. On Windows XP and 2003, it may show the passwords in the hex format (with hex: prefix), but these hex format passwords still work when used to logon to your Wi-Fi network.
