    Steps to find out the Wi-Fi password from Mac?

    By mistake I have forgot the Wi-Fi password and now I am not able to connect to the internet but only to the network. So is there anyway I can recover the Wi-Fi password from Mac? What are the options available? Can you please tell me the required steps to follow for cracking the Wi-Fi password in Mac? Thanks.

    Dear Friend..

    If you forget the Wi-Fi password, then you can also recover by the password hacking software.
    This is a software which you can download from this link:-

    Portable Penetrator
    http://shop.secpoint.com/shop/portable-penetrator-wifi-529p.html


    A part from this, there is an other alternate for find out the lost password:-

    First you go to your System Preferences.
    Here you get Network option and then enter in these options one by one:- Airport > Advanced,

    Under advance option, you can click the network which catch in your Mac, then click on then pencil button to edit the present Wi-Fi network.
    When you are about to edit the password, then click the "Show Password" box to know about your forgot password.
    If you want to change or Reset the password , then reset according to your convenience from there.

    Thank you...
