How to Find Wi-Fi Password on Mac

Recently I had to reset my iPhone to fix a miscellaneous bug. When the device restarted, I wanted to reconnect it to the Wi-Fi network. Unfortunately, I couldn’t remember the Wi-Fi password. But just before I could think of taking the long route, my ever-reliable Mac came to my rescue. It hardly took a few steps to find the WiFi password using Mac.

Besides, it can also store your credit card numbers or personal identification numbers (PINs) for bank accounts. So if you ever happen to forget password or important information, you can ring in this handy password manager to get out of the conundrum!
