Free Wireless Key Finder – WirelessKeyView

I came across this free and handy wireless key finder (WirelessKeyView) recently, and found out it’s useful to recover wireless encryption key or wireless network key stored on your computer.

Please note this tool can only recover the wireless encryption key if you use Wireless Zero Configuration service in Windows XP or WLAN AutoConfig service in Windows Vista, 7, 8 or 10, therefore you won’t see any recovered keys if you use wireless utility provided by wireless adapter manufacturer to connect to wireless network.

If you are interested, you can download this WirelessKeyView tool here. Please note that you can use this handy tool on any version of Windows starting from Windows XP with SP1 and up to Windows 10. After successfully downloading the tool, you don’t have to do any installation, it is click and play as this is just a small tool.

Once you run the tool as admin user, instantly it displays the recovered wireless encryption keys stored on computer, and you can click on Properties icon to let you copy the key easier. Also please note only long WPA-PSK hex key will be displayed in Windows XP (no ASCII key displayed), but you can still key in this hex key to join wireless network.

This WirelessKeyView tool cannot crack the wireless key of other wireless networks as it is not a wireless hacking tool. It can only retrieve a key that is stored on your own computer, of a network that you already connected in the past. If you want to connect to other wireless network, simply ask the owner to give you the wireless key.

Note: You can also select one or more wireless keys, export them into a text file by using the Export Selected Item option under the File menu, and then import these keys into another computer by using the Import Keys From Export File option.

Note: As shown on NirSoft website, some Antivirus programs detect WirelessKeyView utility as infected with Trojan/Virus, but this is just false alert. Please click here to know more about this false alert.
