Find Wi-Fi Network Security Key Password in Windows 11

Wi-Fi is a wireless local area network (WLAN) technology and standard that uses high-frequency radio waves to provide wireless Internet and network connections to your Windows device.

When you connect to a Wi-Fi network for the first time, Windows will automatically add a profile for the Wi-Fi network. The saved profile contains the SSID (network name), security key (password), and security type information used to connect to this specific Wi-Fi network.

If you forgot your Wi-Fi network password, you can find it on a Windows PC that has a profile for the Wi-Fi network on it, or is currently connected to the Wi-Fi network. After you find your password, you can use it on a PC or device to connect to your Wi-Fi network.
