wifi password
« on: May 04, 2015, 04:42:15 am »
I am new to linux.  Just teaching myself with bloggers and online sites on how to get the benefits of linux.  I was told that i can get my password from my wifi through linux software when, if ever i forget.  I was drawn to that so I am curious how that works.  Can someone help me how this can be done?

Right-click the network / wifi icon in your panel.  Then, left-click "Edit Connections."  Highlight (click) the Wi-Fi connection you want and then choose "Edit."  Under the "Wi-Fi Security" tab you will see a password window with dots in it.  Check the "show password" option just below the window and you'll see your password.    ;)

Cheers

I get the feeling this is a question about wireless security penetration ?

if that's the case, we'll not be discussing it here .. the Backtrack/Kali forum may be your best bet.

If on the other hand macs answer is what you were after, I apologise and welcome :)
