If you’ve forgotten a Wi-Fi password or you need to share it with someone, here is how to find it on a Chromebook.
You have to be in “Developer Mode.”
- First, type Ctrl+Alt+T to open the Crosh command prompt.
Next, type the following commands, pressing Enter after each line:
You will get a code string in return. Copy that code, then type cd and paste the code. Press Enter.
Now, type the command more shill/shill.profile , and press Enter.
This will return a list of information about your network. Look for the line that says “Passphrase=rot47:” and copy the random text that follows. This is the encrypted password.
Now type echo text | tr ‘!-~’ ‘P-~!-O’ and press Enter. Replace “text” with the text you copied.
Finally, you’ll see the unencrypted Wi-Fi password.
