Editors' Review

+

WirelessKeyView's simple-looking interface belies its utility. The main feature lets you view the passwords your Wi-Fi manager has stored, but it offers more than just that. The spreadsheet-style main window shows the properties on any stored network name. Users can view not just the ASCII password, but also the Hex key, the adapter type, and the adapter GUID. If you want to copy any of the information, hit ALT Enter to open a properties window that displays it all in editable text fields.

Besides offering copy and search functions, WirelessKeyView also crams in an HTML report feature for either selected networks or the entire database. All in all, it's a great little app for revealing some of the hidden mysteries of the Wi-Fi signals you're using.

"Wireless Key-I don't know the key"

December 18, 2013  |  By TBMike

 |  Version: WirelessKeyView 1.68

Pros

Small simple and easy to use utility.

Cons

It brings up alerts from the antivirus programs so I have to allow.

Summary

Key-don't know the key! How many times have you heard that when visiting relatives. I keep wireless key view on a thumb drive and quickly solve the mystery.

"Outdated, but not infected"

December 13, 2013  |  By windowsxpforever

 |  Version: WirelessKeyView 1.68

Pros

Works great with XP and Vista

Cons

Detected as Trojan- It does unscramble passwords after all. Note, it is not "infected" !!! Norton and McAfee and others consider the entire program a trojan, even though it has legitimate uses. Add an exception for this program

Summary

Note, it is not "infected." Norton and McAfee and others consider the entire program trojan malware, even though it has legitimate uses. Outdated now anyways.

"Norton found a Trojan in it"

December 26, 2012  |  By LarryB34695

 |  Version: WirelessKeyView 1.60

Pros

Didn't run it...see "Cons"

Cons

When I attempted to run this, Norton reported that it contained the ADH.2 trojan virus. Since Norton has never reported a virus in any other downloaded software over the 5 years I've used it, I chose to believe it.

Summary

Infected....wouldn't run it.

"Super-useful one use tool"

September 25, 2012  |  By mr.rubbish

 |  Version: WirelessKeyView 1.56

Pros

Easy to use, gets the job done.

Cons

Some AntiVirus programs flag it as a trojan when the worst they should be flagging it as is a hacker tool, but even that is enough to put off people who don't know what's going on. Visit the developer's site for a post on this issue.

Summary

WirelessKeyView is the kind of utility that you'd only pull out if one of your relatives had lost the piece of paper with their WiFi password on it and then call you up to 'fix the problem'. I think i've used it something like 3 times in the space of 5 years, so it's not really a money spinner, but thankfully the author is giving it away for free.
In the end it's down to whether you trust CNet enough to have tested it and found it malware free.
