Sometimes you forget the WiFi password even though it's already connected. It's a bit annoying when a guest visits and asks for a password but you can't remember it, because maybe the guest thinks we're too stingy to share an internet connection. Yeah, who knows, right?

To avoid that, here's how to find out the WiFi passwords that have been connected before, as we extracted from Gadget Hacks.
