Finding your Wi-Fi password can be a nuisance, especially if it’s an easily forgettable jumble of letters and numbers. While this is great for securing your network, it can be a pain when you have guests in need of an internet connection or you’re setting up a new device — and you have no idea where you last wrote down your network’s Wi-Fi password.
