A simple and handy script to reveal all the saved Wifi passwords.

The script can also be retrieved from GitHub https://github.com/PassingTheKnowledge/Batchography/blob/master/WifiPasswordReveal.bat:

Code: Select all

@echo off

setlocal enabledelayedexpansion

    title WiFiPasswordReveal v1.0
    echo Reveal all saved WiFi passwords Batch file script v1.0

    :: Get all the profiles
    call :get-profiles r

    :: For each profile, try to get the password
        for /f "tokens=1* delims=," %%a in ("%r%") do (
            call :get-profile-key "%%a" key
            if "!key!" NEQ "" (
                echo WiFi: [%%a] Password: [!key!]
            set r=%%b
        if "%r%" NEQ "" goto main-next-profile


    goto :eof

:: Get the WiFi key of a given profile
:get-profile-key <1=profile-name> <2=out-profile-key>

    set result=

    FOR /F "usebackq tokens=2 delims=:" %%a in (
        `netsh wlan show profile name^="%~1" key^=clear ^| findstr /C:"Key Content"`) DO (
        set result=%%a
        set result=!result:~1!
        set %2=%result%

    goto :eof

:: Get all network profiles (comma separated) into the result result-variable
:get-profiles <1=result-variable>

    set result=

    FOR /F "usebackq tokens=2 delims=:" %%a in (
        `netsh wlan show profiles ^| findstr /C:"All User Profile"`) DO (
        set val=%%a
        set val=!val:~1!

        set result=%!val!,!result!
        set %1=%result:~0,-1%

    goto :eof

I have tried this script on windows vista and windows 7 (English) and it doesn't work for me either.

Neither of them works for me (Win10, German). Here is the output if I run the commands manually

Code: Select all

C:\>netsh wlan show profiles

Profile auf Schnittstelle WiFi:

Gruppenrichtlinienprofile (schreibgeschützt)

    Profil für alle Benutzer : FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN 7390

C:\>netsh wlan show profile name="FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN 7390" key=clear

Das Profil "FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN 7390" auf Schnittstelle WiFi:

Angewendet: Profil für alle Benutzer

    Version                : 1
    Typ                    : Drahtlos-LAN
    Name                   : FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN 7390
    Steuerungsoptionen     :
        Verbindungsmodus   : Automatisch verbinden
        Netzwerkübertragung  : Verbinden, nur wenn dieses Netzwerk überträgt
        Automatisch wechseln         : Nicht zu anderen Netzwerken wechseln.
        MAC-Randomisierung  : Deaktiviert

    Anzahl von SSIDs        : 1
    SSID-Name              : "FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN 7390"
    Netzwerktyp            : Infrastruktur
    Funktyp                : [ Beliebiger Funktyp ]
    Herstellererweiterung          : Nicht vorhanden

    Authentifizierung         : WPA2-Personal
    Verschlüsselung                 : CCMP
    Sicherheitsschlüssel   : Vorhanden
    Schlüsselinhalt            : 9612757721470620

    Kosten                 : Uneingeschränkt
    Überlastet              : Nein
    Datenlimit bald erreicht: Nein
    Über Datenlimit         : Nein
    Roaming                : Nein
    Kostenquelle            : Standard


I fear trying to get a solution that works language independent may become a waste of time :?

I was interested to read this aGerman and tried the netsh command and got this error:

Code: Select all

c:\>netsh wlan show profiles
The Wireless AutoConfig Service (wlansvc) is not running.

Then my brain realised that I don't use wireless on this computer... so I added a USB wireless adapter and tried it again LOL

This may work in other languages and it's not particularly clever code, but it uses Aacini's findrepl to isolate the 11th line from the end and which seems to be the wireless password location.

Code: Select all

@echo off
for /f "tokens=2 delims=:" %%a in ('netsh wlan show profiles ^|find " : "') do for /f "tokens=*" %%b in ("%%a") do (
for /f "tokens=2 delims=:" %%c in (
  'netsh wlan show profiles name^="%%b" key^=clear ^|findrepl /o:-11:-11') do for /f "tokens=*" %%d in ("%%c") do (
     echo User              : "%%b"
     echo Wireless Password : "%%d"
pause & goto :EOF

It works in English Windows 8.1 in my limited test.

I fiddled a little more and used vanilla batch code to do the same thing.

Code: Select all

@echo off
set cmd1=netsh wlan show profiles ^^^|find " : "
set cmd2=netsh wlan show profiles name^^^="%%b" key^^^=clear ^^^| find /n /v ""

for /f "tokens=2 delims=:" %%a in ('%cmd1%') do for /f "tokens=*" %%b in ("%%a") do (
   for /f "delims=[]" %%z in ('%cmd2%') do set /a pwdline=%%z - 10
      for /f "tokens=2 delims=:" %%c in ('%cmd2% ^| call find "[%%pwdline%%]" ') do (
         for /f "tokens=*" %%d in ("%%c") do (
            echo User              : "%%b"
            echo Wireless Password : "%%d"
pause & goto :EOF
