This post won’t only guide you on how to find out the passwords of all connected devices with CMD but also how to “Turn On” MAC randomization to avoid location tracking based on device’s MAC address…….
To begin with, Windows create a WLAN profile of every connection to a Wi-Fi network with their individual passwords, these WLAN profiles are stored in the computer alongside other required details of the Wi-Fi profile.
These WLAN profiles can be used to find out all the connected networks and also
previously connected networks with their passwords by using simple commands.
This command works even when you are offline or you are connected to some other WiFi network.
Using this command, we can further optimize our WiFi network like “Turning On” some features such as MAC randomization, under Profile Information to avoid location tracking based on device’s MAC address, changing the radio type of your WiFi and so on.

★ So type this command without quotes “netsh wlan show profile virus key=clear”
★ This command will show you the complete profile of wireless network along with its password

HOW TO TURN ON MAC RANDOMIZATION ON WINDOWS 10
Go to settings and click on ‘Network & internet’Choose the ‘WiFi’ in the left pane and click on the advanced option.
Turn on the ‘Random Hardware Address’ feature under this settings. If your wireless hardware does not support this feature, the “Random Hardware Addresses” section will not show up at all in the settings app.Once you have turned this on, you are done.
Also, under the connectivity settings, in radio type, you can see the whole list. Channel interference could be another reason for a slow WiFi. So, next time, you might also like to change the radio type settings for a better speed.
As far as radio type is concerned, you can also change that in your router for a better connection or connectivity.
