Where to find password on Mac???


Forgot the password? Can't you worry about digging a Wi-Fi password for the router?

We'll show you how to find it in your Mac keychain.




If you set things on your Mac so that your password is filled automatically when you need it, it can be very simple. But sometimes because your password is automatically complete, you may be completely unaware of what your password is when you really need it. The fact is that a good password may not be easy to remember.


Fortunately, it is possible to find the password you use on your Mac through your keychain, thus filling your password automatically.





So, if you need to find a password for an account, app, website or your Wi-Fi network, what should you do:

1) Open keychain access utility (you can do this by pressing command +

space and starting typing the keychain in the spotlight search bar.)


2) Under category in the left sidebar, click Passwords.


3) Find the object you're looking for passwords.


4) Double-click on the latest result (if you have changed it before, you can see more than one but will have a date associated with it).


5) Click the box next to the show password.


6) Enter your normal password that you use when you log on to your

computer.


7) The password will now be shown.

If you have lost a slot card in your router or can't worry about going down to find it, you can also use this method to find your Wi-Fi password.


All you need to know is the name of your Wi-Fi network (if you click on the Wi-Fi logo in the menu at the top of the screen, you may see it in Wi-Fi options).


1. Find your network in Keychain Access.


2. Double-click on the most relevant result.


3. This time when you click show password, you will need to take an

additional step to enter your administrator's username and password. (If

you are not sure what your username is, click the Apple logo in the

menu at the top of the screen and check which name you log in to).





4. Now, you will see the password in the box next to the show password.
