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.

Solutie

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:

shell

sudo su

cd home/root

ls

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.
