Have you ever returned to a place (ex. an office building, coffee shot, hotel) and you are able to automatically re-connect to their wifi?  What if you wanted to connect your other devices like your phone or tablet to the same wifi and you can not find the hostname and password posted anymore?  What if you are traveling with colleagues and they need to connect to wifi?  Did you know there is a way to access all passwords to wifi networks you had previously connected to?  Here is how to do it.
