How to check your wifi password on a Mac os

Only recently I wanted to see the wifi password that I had set on my Mac to share it with a friend. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t find this tiny bit of information where I had expected it to be – in the “security preferences”. It was instead in the “Keychain Acess”.

Here’s how you can see your mac password

Open spotlight search (Press Cmd + Space) and type in “Keychain Access”
– From the “Keychains” sidebar panel, select “System”

  • From the “Category” sidebar panel, select “Passwords”

  • Now the main window will list all of the wifi networks you have available.

  • Double click on your network’s name

  • In the dialog that opens, click on the “Show password” checkbox

  • Enter your system username/password when prompted.
