About

WiFi Password Dump is the free command-line tool to quickly recover all the Wireless account passwords stored on your system.

For each recovered WiFi account, it displays following information

  • WiFi Name (SSID)
  • Security Settings (WEP-64/WEP-128/WPA2/AES/TKIP)
  • Password Type
  • Password in Hex format
  • Password in clear text

By default it dumps all the recovered passwords to console. Now with version v2.0 onwards, you can also save the passwords to TEXT file. Being command-line tool makes it useful for penetration testers and forensic investigators.

WiFi Password Secrets
Depending on the platform, 'Wireless Configuration Manager' uses different techniques and storage locations to securely store the WiFi settings.

On Vista and higher systems all the wireless parameters including SSID, Authentication method & encrypted Password are stored at following file,

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvc\Profiles\Interfaces\{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}\{Random-GUID}.xml
Here each wireless device is represented by its interface GUID {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx} and all the wireless settings for this device are stored in XML file with random GUID name.
