Are you looking to find your WiFi password on your Mac? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to easily locate your WiFi password on a Mac. Let’s get started!

Method 1: Keychain Access

If you have ever connected to the WiFi network before, your password is likely saved in the Keychain Access on your Mac. Here’s how you can find it:

  1. Click on the Spotlight magnifying glass icon in the top-right corner of your screen.

  2. Type in “Keychain Access” and press Enter.

  3. In the search bar on the top-right corner of the Keychain Access window, type in the name of your WiFi network.

  4. Double-click on the WiFi network from the search results.

  5. In the new window that appears, check the box next to “Show password“.

  6. A pop-up will appear asking for your administrator username and password. Enter these details and click “Allow“.

  7. Your WiFi password will now be displayed in plain text.

Method 2: Router Configuration Page

If you are unable to find your WiFi password using Keychain Access or if it’s not saved there, you can try accessing your router’s configuration page:

  1. Open your preferred web browser (e.g., Safari, Chrome, Firefox) on your Mac.

  2. Type in your router’s IP address in the address bar. If you’re unsure of the IP address, check the documentation that came with your router or try common addresses such as “” or “192.1.1“.

  3. Press Enter to access the router’s login page.

  4. Enter your username and password to log into the router’s admin panel.

    If you don’t know these details, again refer to your router’s documentation or try common default credentials like “admin” for both username and password.

  5. Navigate to the wireless settings or security settings section of your router’s configuration page.

  6. Your WiFi password should be listed there. It may be labeled as “password”, “passphrase”, or “security key”.

Method 3: Contact Your Internet Service Provider (ISP)

If both methods mentioned above fail, or if you are uncomfortable accessing your router’s configuration page, you can always reach out to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for assistance.

Contact their customer support and request them to provide you with your WiFi password. They will guide you through an authentication process and once verified, they will share the necessary details with you.

In Conclusion

Finding your WiFi password on a Mac is relatively easy, thanks to the Keychain Access and router configuration page. Remember to keep your WiFi password in a secure place once you find it to ensure the safety of your network.

We hope this tutorial has helped you successfully locate your WiFi password on your Mac. If you have any further questions or need additional assistance, feel free to reach out to us.
