How it Works

Basically, this is the shortcut and batch scripted file version of a popular WiFi password manager viewing method using the command prompt. This is how it works...

netsh wlan show profiles

When you use this tool, you are able to extract the WiFi passwords stored on the target machine in just seconds.


  • netsh wlan show profiles - To harvest wireless interface information.
  • findstr - To extract the information from netsh wlan and save it as a text file.


  1. The tool will harvest the information by using netsh wlan show profiles and will be captured by findstr and save it as a text file.
  2. The tool will create temp.txt to temporarily store the captured wireless interface information. This will be used to output what information has been captured.
  3. In automated mode, the tool will create another temporary file called helper.bat and this file will create another file called final.txt and this file is the final file to be used to create the creds.txt which is the final file that the tool will create.

White Label / Personalize / Custom / Development

  • Download the repository
  • Do "npm install" and "npm install gulp-cli -g && npm install gulp -D"
  • After that, edit the "./src/config.json" file for your customization or personalization.
  • When you think you are satisfied, just do "gulp build" or "gulp" to initiate the building process.
  • If you want to reset the building process just do "gulp cleandev".
  • If you are editing the "./src/core.bat" you can use "gulp test" it is a combination of "gulp build" and "gulp cleandev" so you can quickly quality check the production build.
  • Do "gulp --tasks" to see all available "gulp" commands.

Premium Version

Looking for the official "wifi-passview-vX.X.X.exe" Do you like this version and wanna support the project?



Q: Why you don't use the built-in netsh wlan export command?

I'm aware of that command, the only reason why I use findstr instead of that command is that to make the tool more user-level that does not require any admin rights. For example, if you are about to use the tool in a machine that you don't own then you're not able to use the tool. Got the idea? If the tool does not require admin rights then we can avoid the UAC prompt and we can use the tool more efficiently, the command netsh wlan show profiles do not require admin rights that's why we can still use that and capture the data and save it to file using the findstr command. Brilliant?
