(Last Updated On: February 26, 2017)

It happens sometimes that you change the wifi password of your home’s or office’s router and since you do not have to put it every now and then in your devices you forget the password.

To be frank it happens to me also, several times when somebody asks for my wifi password at my home or at my office.

Now there’s always an option to login to your router’s portal and change the password to a new one, but in that case you will have to re-enter the password in every other device at your home or office using that particular router.

I don’t think this other option is good for you unless you are using only 1 or 2 devices (mobile/tablet/laptop) at your place.

The best option is to find out the current password of your router.
And this trick I used to do, at my school’s computer lab and even at my college’s computers where the lab incharge doesn’t provide you the password. 😉
