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.

"Super-useful one use tool"

September 25, 2012  |  By mr.rubbish

 |  Version: WirelessKeyView 1.56


Easy to use, gets the job done.


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.


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.
