Hidding wifi password

#1 Post by loren » 24 Jun 2021 08:00

Looking for a way to hide the wifi password in win 10 using a .bat. I can hide it by going through the registry but as soon as win 10 does an update it resets the registry and the wifi password is visible again. I'm trying to come up with a .bat or any idea that could help?

This is interesting.
I've read that in Linux they have tools like base64 and gpg to make encrypted files.
Is there a way to make encrypted file or directory in Windows, using cmd.exe or powershell, without third party apps? Something like a text file with your passwords, but you have to type the master password every time you are accessing the file.
