3. Third Way (Logging into your router)

You can also log into your router and find your WiFi password. You need to enter the IP address of the router to log into them . Now different routers may have different IP address. I have linksys router and the ip address for it is 192.168.1.1

1. Type the ip address of the router in the address bar of the browser.

2. Now you need to enter the user name and the password for the router to log into it.

Please note that it is very important that you don’t let other people hack and find your WiFi password. For that it is very important for you to have strong password. It should consists of symbols, letters and numbers.

Change your password from time to time. If you feel that your password is hacked then you have to immediately change it.
