First of all # importing subprocess

import subprocess

# getting meta data

meta_data = subprocess.check_output(['netsh', 'wlan', 'show', 'profiles'])

# decoding meta data

data = meta_data.decode('utf-8', errors ="backslashreplace")

# splitting data by line by line

data = data.split('\n')

# creating a list of profiles

profiles = []

# traverse the data

for i in data:

# find "All User Profile" in each item

if "All User Profile" in i :

# if found

# split the item

i = i.split(":")

# item at index 1 will be the wifi name

i = i[1]

# formatting the name

# first and last character is use less

i = i[1:-1]

# appending the wifi name in the list


# printing heading

print("{:<30}| {:<}".format("Wi-Fi Name", "Password" ))


# traversing the profiles

for i in profiles:

# try catch block begins

# try block


# getting meta data with password using wifi name

results = subprocess.check_output(['netsh', 'wlan', 'show', 'profile', i, 'key = clear'])

# decoding and splitting data line by line

results = results.decode('utf-8', errors ="backslashreplace")

results = results.split('\n')

# finding password from the result list

results = [b.split(":")[1][1:-1] for b in results if "Key Content" in b]

# if there is password it will print the pass word


print("{:<30}| {:<}".format(i, results[0]))

# else it will print blank in front of pass word

except IndexError:

print("{:<30}| {:<}".format(i, "" ))

# called when this process get failed

except subprocess.CalledProcessError:

print("Encoding Error Occurred")
